What's the cause of the problem and how can it be bypassed?

 

Environment

 

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

Based on IBM documentation, the abend/error with OPS/MVS is due to attempting to register OPS/MVS with the IBM Product Feature Registration Service.
The return code 4 from IFAEDREG has the following meaning:

-  The Product/Feature combination is not enabled; it is explicitly disabled and is not permitted to execute. 

This means that the  definitions in SYS1.PARMLIB member IFAPRD** are preventing OPS from running on this System with the Registration Service.

If this is not the case, then the LINKLIST should be checked for any wrong/back-level OPSMVS load-module ahead the correct loadlib used by the current task. 

In one case It has been found a LOADMODULE in the SYSn.SINGLOAD Library, which has the same as OPSENQ and it is for SA390.

In addition this IBM product registration service is not used by OPS/MVS.
