Issue/Introduction

CA Common Services Release 14.1 PTF SO08066 was activated as described, using LLA REFRESH and SETPROG LPA,ADD,MODNAME=CASHCLPA,DSNAME=LNKLST,FIXED but DMSAR=INSTALL or any CA DISK Batch job is still getting:

CAHC101I Function: INITIALIZE Return Code: x'00000008' Reason Code: x'00000008' 
in the Joblog (JESMSGLG) and

4538 INITIALIZATION OF HEALTH CHECKS FAILED: MODULE ADSHR001 FAILED WITH  RC= 4 RS= 8
in MSGPRINT DD

Cause

CA Common Services Release 14.1 PTF SO08066 solves a problem with termination of "queued" health check initialize requests, which are created when the CAHCHECK address space is not running.
The problem was that there was already a "queued" entry for which a terminate was attempted without the fix applied.
Activating the fix as described using LLA REFRESH and SETPROG LPA,ADD,MODNAME=CASHCLPA,DSNAME=LNKLST,FIXED does not
fix this "bad" entry and thus subsequent DMSAR=INSTALL or Batch jobs are still getting Messages CAHC101I in and CA DISK message 4538.

Environment

Release : 12.5

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

 In order to remove this "bad" entry and to get rid of the messages perform the following steps: 

  • F CAMASTER,START COMPONENT=CAHCHECK -> to start CAHCHECK 
  • S DMSAR,DMSAR=REMOVE -> to terminate while CAHCHECK is running 
  • P CAHC -> stop CAHCHECK again 
  • S DMSAR,DMSAR=INSTALL -> no more CAHC101I messages 

Any subsequent DMSAR=REMOVE, DMSAR=INSTALL will then work correctly without CAHCHECK running and CAHC101I is no longer issued.
