How to fix this problem.

Environment

Release :  

Component : CA-7

Resolution

This abend can occur if any of the applied PTFs does contain a ++HOLD ACTION requiring an 'After Apply' activity on the Datacom DB and this activity was not executed correctly. 

For example we have seen this problem in CA-7 12.1, after apply of PTF SO15185, which contains the following ++HOLD ACTION :

...
                      **************************                          
                      * STEPS    TO    PERFORM *                          
                      **************************                          
Run CAL2JCL job AL2DCA70.  Make sure you always use the most current      
version of AL2DCA70 from the CAL2JCL dataset.  Expect a return code of    
zero from all steps.    

....        
                                                                           
This PTF provides JCL (AL2DBI05) to execute a job that will rename         
a reserved column in the CA7_ZERO_RECORDS Datacom table to make the        
JCL_RETRY column available to SQL queries.                                 
                                                                           
(1) Run job AL2DBI05 to rename the reserved column to JCL_RETRY.           
                                                                           
          ).    

...

and it was not executed correctly against the involved CA7 DB instance.

If this doesn't help addressing the abend, Please open a Support case, providing all the available documentation.
