OPS0010U Load Module OPSENQ release code error - IBM SA Library SINGLOAD


Article ID: 210924

CA OPS/MVS Event Management & Automation


Upgrading to z/OS 2.4, that includes an update to System Automation 4.02, when OPSMAIN is started on the newly converted system, the  below message is got:

OPS0010U Load module OPSENQ release code error - contact systems

Why this message and how to bypass it ?



Release : 

Component : OPS/MVS


Upgrading to z/OS 2.4, it will automatically include an update to System Automation 4.02. This update renames loadlib SINGMOD1 to SINGLOAD and adds a new IBM module alias OPSENQ.  This same module name is also present in the OPSMVS product CCLXLOAD loadlib.

If the CCLXLOAD library is located AFTER the SINGLOAD in Link List, starting OPSMAIN on the newly converted system, the message

OPS0010U Load module OPSENQ release code error - contact systems

is immediately issued because of modules mismatch and the easiest temporary work around is to use the //STEPLIB to the CCLXLOAD library in the OPSMAIN PROC.

In general CA OPS/MVS does not require that its load library is in the LNKLST and it is usually recommended to include STEPLIB in all OPS procs such OPSOSF, OPSUSS, OPSECF and others like the OPSLOG archival task. The JCL procedure of the TSO users that access the OPSVIEW panels will also have to include the STEPLIB for the CCLXLOAD library as some functions require APF authorization. Other than the above, it is OK to use STEPLIB instead of LNKLST, but also the LNKLST can be used.

That's why for this specific situation IBM has provided the APAR fix:
