It doesn't appear to be a space issue, as the dataset is only in 4 extents, and the volume where it resides has plenty of free space:

Cause

Description: General VM cache failure.                                      
                                                                            
Action: If the return code is ENOSPC (133), the file system or aggregate is
full. If this is the case, make more space available. Otherwise, contact the
service representative.

Note: DECIMAL 133 is a HEX 85

Environment

Release : 15.0
Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS

Resolution

While the allocation for the zFS file system appears to be adequate, for some reason the filesystem was not taken additional extents to accommodate the needed size to hold the changes introduced with the maintenance.

The circumvention is to allocate a larger zFS filesystem to avoid the need to take extents, and copy the contents of the original zFS into the newly allocated zFS.

Follow-up with IBM for any known problems an/or solutions.
