Getting the following error message followed by an abend SA03 in the OPSMAIN started task after an IPL:*OPS0189S Main task timed out while waiting to be posted by the shared file I/O subtask
IEF450I OPSMAIN IEFPROC - ABEND=SA03 U0000 REASON=00000000
If your installation does NOT use the VSAM shared file (GLVSHAREDFILE, GLVSHAREDDD parameters are not set) so you should include the following parameter in the OPSSPA00 member:
T = OPSPRM_SET("GLVSHAREDTASK","NOTASK")
This will prevent that SHFI subtask from being started and prevent the OPS0189S message from occurring.
This SHFI subtask is only required when you use the VSAM shared file I mentioned earlier.
