Question:

CA Fast Load for DB2 for z/OS (PFL) fails with a U100 abend in module UTLGLCTL with PFL messages PFL4020E and PFL0008E indicating a sort task failure / abend.

The following SyncSort messages are displayed:

WER219I DYNALLOC FAILED RC=(021C) - SORTWK SORT PROCESSING CONTINUES
WER046A SORT CAPACITY EXCEEDED

The following PFL messages are displayed:

PFL4020E - SORT abended - Abend Code: X'010'
See sort messages for more details.
PFL0008E - SORT Processing cancelled - Check SORTMSGS for problem

The job fails to load the table as expected and returns the following:

PFL0208E - Datasets did not load successfully -
RECOVERY required before RESTART

 

Answer:

The SyncSort error message WER219I DYNALLOC FAILED RC=(021C) - SORTWK SORT PROCESSING CONTINUES indicates that an incorrect unit name was supplied for SORTWK. The SORT-SORTDEVT parameter in highlvl.CDBAPARM member UTIL should specify a valid sort device type. The SORTDEVT keyword may also be specified within the PFL syntax and should specify a valid unit value if present.
