OPS/MVS Global Variable backup failure S013-C8 abend
Article ID: 192308
CA OPS/MVS Event Management & Automation
In the course of IPL'ing one of our Mainframe LPARs the following abend occurred with an automated trigger for backing up our Global Variables file for OPS/MVS. I have not been able to find any documentation on the S013-C8 abend nor the OPSS0035 message.
Release : 13.0 or above
Component : OPS/MVS
In this customer's case, the abend was caused by a Time of Day rule triggering before JES initialization completed. Recommend reviewing the log at the time of abend. If encountering this situation, a message similar to this should appear shortly before the abend in the log:
18:50:00 OPS3900O RULE TOD.rulename FOR TOD 202x/xx/xx 18:50:00 SET . . . 18:50:00 OPS3092O SUBMIT ENDED DUE TO ERROR, SYSTEM ABEND CODE 013
Scrolling further up the log from the OPS3900O message, there will be no evidence of the JES initialization completing prior to when the rule was set to trigger.
