Issue/Introduction

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

Cause

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

Environment

z/OS any level
Vision Builder any level
IMS any level

Resolution

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
