Introduction:

Symptom:

Executing DFSORT in a DBUTLTY LOAD via installation job BDNEW01 for the Dataquery Database (DBID 003) customer gets:

 ICE185A AN S0C4 ABEND WAS ISSUED BY DFSORT™, ANOTHER PROGRAM OR AN EXIT (PHASE S 1) is found in the DFSORT™ report.

Followed by:

SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=0C4  REASON CODE=0000003B
              TIME=11.14.48  SEQ=00132  CPU=0000  ASID=001C
              PSW AT TIME OF ERROR  078D0001   80036CC0  ILC 6  INTC 3B
               NO ACTIVE MODULE FOUND
                NAME=UNKNOWN

Environment:

z/OS 2.1 - CA Datacom/DB 15.1

Workaround:

Goggling the S0C4 symptom related to z/O v2r1, several of these DFSORT problems can be bypassed by turning off Memory Objects:

//DFSPARM DD * 

OPTION MOSIZE=0

/*

That setting bypassed the error for that customer.
