Release : 15.0
Component : SYSVIEW
Golden Gate software prior to release 126.96.36.199.2.
It was determined that SYSVIEW was a victim of the situation. The underlying cause is potentially linked to Golden Gate and appears to be a task-startup timing issue at IPL:
If the GoldenGate Extract starts BEFORE most other ECSA users:
The reported GoldenGate error condition is fixed in version 188.8.131.52.2.
For earlier releases of Golden Gate there is a workaround:
‘GoldenGate Application Support’ to delete a status file, ./dirtmp/ecsainfo.dat, on the zLinux platform.
However, this could cause mainframe common ‘storage leaks’ if it is done indiscriminately.
A more restrictive workaround would be to delete the file only before starting the GoldenGate Extract process with each IPL.
This would require a new co-ordination effort between MVS Support and GoldenGate Application Support for mainframe IPLs.
