Issue:
Restore fails with HiDRO EC 2B7 abend 

This abend occurs during a restore where the start extent value and end extent value are both ZERO.





 
Environment:
On the restore we know that IEXTENTS was used for the backup, but when we go to check the first set of EXTENTS in the stored information and both low-ext and high-ext are ZEROs ... it causes HiDRO to think there is no EXTENT there." 
 

A workaround is to:
 
Change your IEXTENT to: 

---- IEXTENTS TRACKS (0 1) - 

Or, edit the Failed Commands files and specifically add the OEXTENTS TRACKS (0 0) local option to each of the failed commands. Then submit the Failed Commands file to SYBMON for execution.
Cause:
IEXTENTS was used for the backup.
Resolution:
PTF SO06046 corrects the EC 2B7 ABEND restoring the data that was backed up with the IEXTENTS TRACKS (0 0) local option.
