While bring up our DR systems for testing, A VM system that runs MIMGR r12 received the following:
GCTABD226E Application 'MIMDRBGN' failed - System abend E38-0000
This runs fine at our primary location. Couldn't find information on this abend. 
Tried a restart with format chkpt, but same abend. 


Release : 12.0
Component : MIA FOR VM


It sounds as though the control file has been defined incorrectly on the newest system.


Complete symptoms may look similar to

MIM0216 I/O error file 00 sense 8002 ...
CSIABD226E in MIMDRBGN abend E38 for GCS .

MIM0216 Sense 8002 is caused by a control file that is linked in read only mode.

Check the following:
1) The pack where the control file resides is defined as shared to VM on the new system.
2) The MDISK statement has MWV and that there is only 1 MDISK statement.
    (This should be for one of the original VM systems.)
3) The LINK statement has MW.(For all other systems not using the MDISK statement.)
