Issue:

CAT6412E - INVALID RETURN CODE FROM SORT - RC=16 

Cause:

Wishing to verify the VMF file running the CATVMFV we get the following error 

CAT6412E - INVALID RETURN CODE FROM SORT - RC=16 

with no any other error messages as it is indicated on the 

CAT6412E

INVALID RETURN CODE FROM SORT - RC=XX

Reason:

The invoked SORT did not complete with a return code of zero. This may mean processing was not completed correctly.

Action:

Look for previous CAT64xx messages and the information from the SYSOUT DD statement.

But  we get the following sort message:

ICE046A 0 SORT CAPACITY EXCEEDED - RECORD COUNT 529593 

Resolution:

increasing the SPCVMF='(CYL,(5,5))' to  SPCVMF='(CYL,(100,100))' and adding a a //SORTWK02 DD UNIT=&SPCVMF they didn't get the CAT6412E message. a report with the status of the VMF file is displayed.
