Question:

 

What could be the cause of a GFP447E abend PHASE=JCLPCL when trying to UNHOLD an EVENT in the current schedule ?

 

Environment:
The current schedule has some events in HOLD status. When trying to release one of the held events using the U (UNHOLD) command, the event is not set to RUN status and an abend appears in the FAQSPCS partition : GFP447E GSEDIT ABNORMAL TERMINATION GFP447E PSW=07DD0000 8076B002 GFP447E PHASE=JCLPCL +00000002
Answer:

 

This points to a problem with the SYS$EVT PDS, so the recommendation is to perform the following steps to resolve the problem.  

1) Bring down FAQSPCS

2) Backup the SYS$EVT file using GSPDSU 

    // EXEC GSPDSU  

   PDS=EVT,BACKUP  

   /*              

3) Format the SYS$EVT file using   

   // EXEC GSPDSU,SIZE=GSPDSU 

   FORMAT=EVT,EVENT 

   /*

4) Restore the SYS$EVT file using GSPDSU from the backup performed in step 2.

   // EXEC GSPDSU  

   PDS=EVT,RESTORE  

   /*              

5) REIPL the VSE machine
