VM:Backup for z/VMVM:Backup High-Speed Disaster Recovery Option (HiDRO)
We're running VM:Backup 3.6 on z/VM 6.4. I tried to restore a file and VM:Backup abended with a CID015. I restarted the machine with NOCHECK, then ran a check on the catalog which ran clean, no errors. I can restore other minidisks just fine but subsequent attempts to restore this one file all fail with CID015.
Release: Component: VMB
Re-index the catalog files.
First rename the four INDEX files and let VM:Backup rebuild them at startup. Since the CHECK command reports no errors, that's an indication there are no missing catalog files.
When you do bring VM:Backup back up, consider bringing it up COLD just to remove any queued restore requests that may still be tied to this catalog conflict. Of course a COLD init will remove any and all jobs that are queued to run so we don't want to cause any scheduling interruption/hardship by you doing so. But the catalogs need to be re-indexed to prevent the CID015 abend.
It's also possible the catalog the file is being restored from was condensed *after* the restore job was compiled. That could cause a CID abend like this, hence, the suggestion to cancel any queued restores.
