It is not possible to make changes to the parameter group in an effort at correcting the problem.
No other errors appear.
Setting INIDEBUG=YES  in the RUNSYSIN shows nothing additional.
 
Environment:
All SOLVE  and Netmaster products
Cause:
RAMDB may be corrupted.
Resolution:
If the RAMDB was corrupted, how to handle this depends on the content of the file.

If the RAMDB does not contain customized data that is difficult to replace, the following steps will resolve the problem:

1.  Stop the Netmaster region (SSI is not impacted)
2. Delete/define  the RAMDB using the pertinent section of the S01LCALC job.
3. Run the LDRAM step of the  S04LDVSM job.
4. Restart the region

If the RAMDB contains customized data that is difficult to replace, an attempt should be made to repair the file.
One option is to see if a backup of the RAMDB is available prior to corruption and restore that version.
The other is to run through the steps in Technical Document KB000055433, section titled Fix a Corrupted NDB, 
to check and possibly repair the existing RAMDB.
