Introduction:

In z/OS 2.3 and later, various CA Disk programs may no longer create a SYSUDUMP, SYSMDUMP or SYSABEND for program failures (ABENDs) occurring during CA Disk processing.                                            

Background:

As of z/OS 2.3 and later, IBM has changed the behavior of z/OS system DUMP processing (ABDUMP) to no longer create DUMPs for data sets that have the JSCBPASS bit turned on.  The JSCBPASS bit is used by authorized programs to bypass security processing.  The following message is issued when the DUMP is being bypassed:                      
                                                                        
IEA848I DUMP SUPPRESSED - ABDUMP MAY NOT DUMP STORAGE FOR JSCBPASS JOB jobname

                                                                        
CA Disk uses security bypass for processing some user data sets but it's primarily used for accessing our ARCHVOLS.
                                                                        
In most cases, the reason for the ABEND may be determined by checking the IBM z/OS Systems Codes manual.  The ABEND code, reason code and associated messages may provide sufficient information on how to resolve the problem.  If additional assistance is needed, contact CA support with the ABENDing job information.
                                                                        

Environment:
z/OS 2.3
Instructions:

If CA support is not able to determine the reason for the ABEND based on the information provided, they will ask for you to enter a SLIP console command and re-run the job to obtain a DUMP.                 
                                                                     
For example, if job DMSEXTR1 failed with a S013 ABEND, enter the following SLIP command and re-run the job.
                                                                      
  SLIP SET,COMP=013,JOBNAME=DMSEXTR1,END
