Question:
Why do I get the following abend when running DB2 binds in an Endevor processor: 
SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=04E REASON CODE=00E20003  
 
Answer:
Contact IBM DB2 support for resolution. 
Additional Information:
Possible workaround: 
Modify all your processors to change the DCB attributes of DBRMLIB allocation. For every occurrence of DBRMLIB, change BLKSIZE to 4000 and add/change BUFNO=1.

This will minimize the size of the leaked storage to a single page and it will be possible to perform more Endevor actions in one job step before the abend occurs.
