After upgrading Symdump Batch and Intertest Batch from Release 9.0 to release 11.0 batch jobs are abend with an SOC1 abend? Symdump batch captured and S0C1 abend and generated the following report.

Cause

I cannot explain why someone would add the CA Optimizer release 6.0 CA Optimizer RUNTIME termination card to the CAIRIM initialization PDS to be used at IPL time to start products.
 If there was a purpose at the time(A work around) it should have been removed shortly after it was no longer need. The impact of this card being present in the member was not obvious and a problem waiting to surface.

Environment

Resolution

The Symdump batch product provides support for CA Optimized programs by default. At IPL time CAIRIM is used to START certain CA products.
At IPL time CAIRIM starts Symdump Batch r 11 which loads 11 load modules into system CSA storage including the module that was missing and caused the problem CAOCEMCK.

Release 6.0 was announced GA in 1992 and went out of support in 6-3-1999. So I guess this CA optimizer termination card was being used since the mid 1990's.   

In last weeks CAS9 initialization before the upgrade you started Symdump batch r 9.0 AFTER the CA Optimizer terminate card below.

The card above runs and deleted CAOCEMCK from CSA storage. Then Symdump batch r 9.0 was started and reloaded CAOCEMCK into storage.

In the current CAS9 after the upgrade 

We started  Intertest and Symdump r 11 which loaded CAOCEMCK into storage. Next the CA Optimizer RX14TERM program ran and deleted CAOCEMCK from storage.

Since you upgraded to Symdump release 11 you were required to remove the Symdump Batch r 9.0 initialization card and CAOCEMCK  was never reloaded. This caused the TRCENGIN CA Optimized module to abend.

To resolve the problem we removed the OLD Symdump batch termination card below from CAIRIM and resubmit CAIRIM to restart the products which loaded the missing modules into storage.
