Issue:
I’ve successfully applied the key on the System Programmer test machine. However, when I start the tasks they abend with a U0913. I attempted to start the tasks before I applied the key and got the same error. And I can’t tell you if this ever worked on the System Programmer test machine. By any chance, can you tell me what the U0913 means? 
Cause:
The USER 0913 abend is an indication of an invalid license key.  
Contact CA Licensing to obtain a current valid license key for the product and your CPU serial number(s).
Resolution:
As an alternative to the SMPE method of applying the license key with CYBALI39 for CA Alchemist, you can use AMASPZAP to apply the zap supplied by CA Licensing:
 
//********************************************* 
//* ZAP A LOAD MODULE 
//********************************************* 
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=AMASPZAP 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=X 
//SYSLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=....SSALLINK 
//SYSIN DD * 
 NAME ZDEDDB ZDEDDB 
 REP 0100 aaaaaaaa,bbbbbbbb,cccccccc,dddddddd 
 REP 0110 eeeeeeee

If the updates are not successful, follow the instructions provided by the utility messages.

For example:
AMA120I ZDEDDB   NO IDR SPACE - RE-LINK              
AMA127I UPDATES INHIBITED (NO OVERRIDE)    
         
             
Based on AMA127I message recommendations (see below), reran zap successfully with the IGNIDRFULL parm.

AMA120I mod NO IDR SPACE -- RE-LINK 
Explanation - A REP operation was to be performed on a module, but SPZAP found that no space is available in the IDR for maintenance information. 
System action - Message will be followed by either AMA127I or AMA128I. 
System programmer response - The indicated module must be reprocessed by the linkage editor so that the module will contain an additional IDR; then rerun the SPZAP job. 

AMA127I UPDATES INHIBITED (NO OVERRIDE) 
Explanation - This message is issued after message AMA120I to indicate inhibition of updates to the module because all IDR entries for that module have been filled. 
System action - Processing continues except for rejection of REP and IDR statements for this module. 
System programmer response - Re-link edit the module to create a new IDR, or rerun the job with IGNIDRFULL option specified.
Additional Information:
You can also use AMASPZAP to verify that the license has been applied.
