Issue/Introduction

Description:

During the Install of CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS Release 17 the APPLY may fail with an SB37 abend on the SYSPRINT DDNAME. In the SYSOUT & SMPOUT the following error is reported::


 GIM44004S ** SYSTEM ABEND B37 OCCURRED WITH A REASON CODE OF '00000004'X AFTER SMP/E CALLED THE IEWL UTILITY. THE
     SYSPRINT LIBRARY RAN OUT OF SPACE. THE LIBRARY IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR RETRY PROCESSING BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE
     LIBRARY BEING UPDATED BY SMP/E.

Cause: SYSPRINT runs out of space during the install.

Additional Information: This could also happen during install of any other large product packages

Solution:

MSM allocates the SYSPRINT output dataset initially with the attributes CYL(30,30). The VOLSER or SMS storage class to which the SYSPRINT is allocated is specified in the MVS Program Executor - Output under Settings, System Settings. Add EXTENDED attribute to the SMS class being used to allow enough secondary space to be obtained.
