Issue:

A S106-00 ABEND occurred in the PDSMAN address space during the execution of a PDSMAN Health Check. IBM Health Checks had been started immediately before the ABEND, causing PDSMAN Health Checks to be triggered.

In this case, the PDSMAN started task was not executing with REGION=0M specified. SVC dump information for this occurrence was:

STC00808 00000291 IEA794I SVC DUMP HAS CAPTURED: 000

000 00000291 DUMPID=004 REQUESTED BY JOB (PDSMAN )

 CAHC414E Failure in (CA_PDSMAN,PDSMAN_PDSMLMON_ACTIVE)

 CAHC416E User check routine abended with S106

 CAHC420E Check routine: 8EED7000 Failure: 81598CB6 Reason: 0000000C

Cause:

The region size specified for the PDSMAN address space was insufficient, resulting in a storage shortage when executing the PDSMAN Health Checks. The distributed sample PDSMAN address space JCL procedure specifies REGION=2M which, in some cases, is too small due to subsequent enhancements that have been made to the product.

Resolution:

Change the EXEC statement in the PDSMAN address space started task procedure to specify REGION=0M.
