Issue/Introduction

Just upgraded a Datacom MUF to 15.1. At the very first start, it gets the following messages:


DB01900I - *VIRTUAL    IXX017,32K         TEMP WORK INDEX FOR SQL REQUESTS            
DB01900I - *VIRTUAL    TTM017,4M          TEMP WORK AREA FOR SQL REQUESTS
DB01900I - *ZIIPTASK   1,33               # ZIIP TASKS,PERCENTAGE OF WORK             
DB00216E - ERROR IN SYSIN/SYSIPT DATA                                                 

Then it abends due to a U0004 abend code.

Cause

The SYSIN contains an invalid/incorrect card

Environment

Release : 15.1

Component : CA DATACOM/DB

Resolution

The error:
DB00216E - ERROR IN SYSIN/SYSIPT DATA
and the related U0004 abend are, in this case, due to the following card:


DB01900I - EXPAND 4K,10 EXPAND RECS BUFFER SIZE, NO. BUFFERS
DB01909E - * - ASTERISK POINTS NEAR ERROR
DB01920E - TOO MANY PARAMETERS

EXPAND card is no longer required since Datacom release 14.2, as it can be read on the "Release Comparison" matrix on Datacom 15.1 documentation:

Feature Release 15.1  Version 15.0  Release 14.2   Version 14.0
EXPAND no             no             no             yes

Additional Information

The following note can be found on the Datacom 14.0 Release Guide:


Removed EXPAND from MUF Startup
The EXPAND option has been removed from the MUF startup and if specified, displays an ignored message.
