Description:

Executing new CA Fast Unload for DB2 for z/OS (PFU) job and reporting the following errors:

IEF085I REGION UNAVAILABLE, ERROR CODE=20
IEF187I S70N081N FAILED - SYSTEM ERROR IN INITIATOR
IEF450I S70N081N STEP445 - ABEND=S822 U0000 REASON=00000014  

 

Solution:

The step which failed due to insufficient region was coded as:

//STEP445 EXEC PGM=PTLDRIVM,
// PARM='EP=UTLGLCTL/ssid',
// REGION=16M

Recommendation would be to specify REGION=0M on step or JOBCARD if allowed.  REGION=0M is recommended and the REGION specification on the JOBCARD will override the step REGION specification.  If REGION=0M is not allowed, then specify a REGION larger than 16M or lower than the available initiator REGION available such as REGION=8M.
