Cause

Extracted from IBM Knowledge Center: 

IEA602IADDRESS SPACE CREATE FAILED. text 
ADDRESS SPACE CREATE FAILED. text 

--- Explanation 
A request to create a new address space could not be honored because of an error or a resource limitation. In the message text: 

One of the following: 
- THE GETMAIN FOR THE ASCB FAILED 
  Storage could not be obtained from SQA for the new address space's ASCB or ASSB. 

- MAXUSERS WOULD HAVE BEEN EXCEEDED 
  The creation of a new address space would exceed the maximum number of allowable address spaces as specified in the MAXUSER, RSVNONR,    and RSVSTRT parameters in the IEASYSxx parmlib member. 

- ADDRESS SPACE SERVICES FAILED 
  Address space services suffered an error which prevented the address space creation. 

- A STORAGE SHORTAGE EXISTS 
  There is insufficient SQA, pageable storage, or auxiliary storage available. 

- AN UNEXPECTED ERROR OCCURRED 
  An unexpected error occurred which prevented the address space creation. 

--- System action 
The system was unable to create the requested new address space. The system continues processing without the new address space. 

--- Operator response 
Notify the System Programmer. 

--- System programmer response 
Resolve the resource shortage if the problem is a shortage of SQA, auxiliary storage, or MAXUSERs. For the unexpected error cases, check the logrec data set for an error record or retry the request.

Environment

z/os, CA Datacom/AD 14.0 upgrading CA7 to 12.0

Resolution

Sysprog followed the IBM message below:
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSLTBW_2.3.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r3.ieam600/cc602i.htm
Allowing the SPILL job to execute and CA7 12.0 Conversion job to run.

The root cause for us was that we were at Max on page space for our LPAR. This prevented the Logspill from running, both as a STC or batch job. Once we were able to find the heavy users of the storage we brought down the STC's, then Datacom and the Logspill jobs ran successfully.
