Question:
ENBE1000 Define processor group failed with error message:
VSI1102E RETURN CODE 0008 FEEDBACK CODE 0028 RECEIVED FROM PUT MACRO FOR RPL CNTL BLOCK
ENBE083E A $IMR error occurred in routine ENBE2310.PPGRRUTN.
IMGR201E VSAM I/O ERROR ON IMR FUNCTION AGAINST DDNAME SY, RC=001C FEEDBK=E2E8 ENBE110I
The DEFINE PROCESSOR GROUP action has completed. Return Code is 12
Answer:
Did the error message Error message IEC070I 034(004), Please control.
If Error message IEC070I 034(004) has NOT been issued, please open a case to CA Support.
If Error message IEC070I 034(004) has been issued, you reached the 4gb limit for a standard VSAM (non-extended vsam datasets).

The error IEC070I 034 indicates that the maximum relative byte address (RBA) limit (4,294,967,295) has been reached and the return code 004 indicates the end of volume for a non-extended VSAM file.
The solution is to convert KSDS to Extended Addressability.
But as Extended Addressability XAADDR option is only available for SMS sites, it must be implemented in the ACS routines and/or by specifying an appropriate DATACLAS. Then you need the assistance from your DFSMS Storage folks to have such DATACLAS created and other SMS definition such as MGMTCLAS.
To solve case, follows these steps:
1. Know the MGMTCLAS and DATACLAS for Extended Addressability
2. Convert the KSDS
21. REPRO the current MCF files out to sequential DS.
22. DELETE and REDEFINEĀ  the MCF under an SMS data class for extended format.
23. REPRO the SEQUENTIAL file back into the new VSAM MCF files.

The sample job BC1JRMCF from the Endevor JCL library 'UPRFX.UQUAL.CSIQJCL' can be tailored to do the copy and the allocation of the files with the SMS parameters for the extended format.
