Environment

Release : 2.0

Component : Thread Terminator

Resolution

The Abend S0C4 might be caused because the DSNZPARM module was not Assemble/Link-edit correctly for this particular DB2 Subsystem.  
This problem was fixed after an old DSNZPARM module was identified and it was Assemble/Link-edit again. 
  
Additionally after maintenance has been applied you have to double check you work with the right PTILIB and PTIPARM DDnames in your TSO session. The PTILIB DDname CDBALOAD library should be the same as in the Xmanager JCL or at same level of software maintenance.

When you are in the Thread Terminator menu issue the command TSO ISRDDN and you can double check the DDNames and libraries. 

DDname   Data Set Name
PTILIB   R200.CDBALOAD
PTIPARM  R200.CDBAPARM
