Issue/Introduction

Running a CA IDMS local mode batch job fails with error DC045015 Scratch area open failed: GETSCRWX RC=FFFFFFFC

Cause

When SCRATCH_IN_STORAGE=ON is specified in the SYSIDMS parameter file, the scratch area will be allocated in memory.

If DC_SCRATCH=ON is also specified it will use the DDLDCSCR area definition in the DMCL instead of DDLOCSCR. 

The DC045015 error message indicates there is insufficient storage to allocate the scratch area.

Environment

Release:
Component: IDMS

Resolution

Modify the JCL to specify a larger REGION size or specify REGION=0M in the EXEC card of the failing step.
