FRC013 abend in VM:Backup while running a backup.
Release : 3.6
Component : CA VM:Backup for z/VM
An FRC013 abend is often the result of insufficient virtual storage defined for the VM:Backup service virtual machine.
The console showed:
VMBACKUP 00 VMBABN0460I The following domains were being processed by job WEEK:
VMBACKUP 00 VMBABN0461I VMAPSFS:LUIGI by the PCB at 1FC68348.
VMBACKUP 00 VMBEND0003I VM:Backup ended: 26Mar19 22:29:07. VMBACKUP 00 VMBEND0075I Maximum virtual storage used since VM:Backup was started was 205M out of 496M bytes.
I'm noting virtual storage used since VM:Backup was started was 205M out of 496M bytes.
The customer had 512M defined for VM:Backup and suggested increasing to a minimum of 1024M since that's the recommended size.
See informational PTF QI32411 for recommended SERVICE MACHINE VIRTUAL STORAGE SIZES for the VM:Manager suite of products.
