After applying the required maintenance for ca-balancing we tried to start the CA Balancing started task on our test system.

But we are getting an abend U0200 at startup.


It looks like an issue with Lserv.




- z/OS



Common reason for getting abend U0200 is that the LSERV task is not active. 


According to the messages issued in the CA Balancing started task:

INB6301I CA-Balancing 1.1 is initialized - CA-L-Serv id = LSRV


the Balancing task is looking for LSERV with name LSRV.




Ensure Lserv is active and running with your test environment.
The Lserv task must be started before CA Balancing.
