Running Vision Builder report with new release IMS s001 abend
Article ID: 128577
When running in DLI/BMP mode under IMS 15.1, the VisionBuilder job fails on a S001 abend when it encounters an empty dataset. When running in DL1/BMP under IMS 14.1, the Vision Builder job continues to process without encountering any abend. Executed the BLXRLK#1, to relink with IMS V15 but that did not resolve the issue. Need assistance to determine why the job fails under IMS V15.1 with the S001 abend instead of continuing to process under IMS 14.1
In this particular case the abend was as follows:
IEC020I 001-1,M4R01C02,STEP01,M4LIB,2155,SMN583, IEC020I TIRKSI23.M080090.MIVLIB IEC020I NO ERROR HANDLING, (SYNAD), EXIT SPECIFIED +DFS629I IMS BATCH REGION ABEND- SYS 0001 SL2
This is an open/close error on the M4LIB file
z/OS any level Vision Builder any level IMS any level
The MVLIB files require initialization and if you used any other methods to copy the fle it is not initialized.
The M4LIB files should have been copied using MARKDUMP and MARKREST
Recommended procedure to follow:
1) Use the proper utilities to copy the files for your test environment 2) Use IMS14 against the new files in the first test 3) Use IMS 15 as the second test against the new files ONLY if the IMS 14 job runs against the new files.
This should resolve the problem
