CAS9219E - Unexpected end of task. Task = CAS9TIMR, CC = 00C4/0011
 

These abends can repeat each minute but will not terminate the ENF address space.

 

Cause:

The abend occurs because an ENF/DB2 control block is not completely filled in, so when CAS9TIMR looks at it it has incomplete information. A new fix was written so that CAS9TIMR verifies all the values extracted from this control block to ensure completeness.

In this case the trigger to the problem was a DB2 region abending during CA-ENF/DB2 interface initialization.

 

Resolution:

Download and install CA-ENF PTF RO90141 (Please open a case with CA Common Services technical support if PTF is not yet available for download)

 

Additional Information:

In this specific case, the abend in DB2 was due to an incompatibility between CA-ACF2/DB2 and CA-ACF2/BASE r16.0

Here are the messages that were generated -

CAS9800I - ENF-DB2 Interface Initialization in Progress
IEA794I SVC DUMP HAS CAPTURED:
DUMPID=001 REQUESTED BY JOB (DBT2MSTR)
DUMP TITLE=DBT2,ABND=378-00000024,U=SYSOPR  ,M=N  ,C=101.MGC -T
O SERVI,M=DSN9SCN9,PSW=070C10008153ABB8,A=0037

 

Notice that there is no further message beyond the CAS9800I that indicates initialization has completed or not. A successful initialization would be recognized by the following message:

CAS9801I  ENF-DB2 Interface Initialization Complete System $$$$

where $$$$ is the defined z/OS subsystem name for the interface.

 

The corrective CA-ACF2/DB2 fix to prevent this DB2 problem is RO81116
