Issue/Introduction

A CA IDMS CV Batch job runs fine on most days but sometimes fails with an 1153 abend code.
In most cases re-running the job is successful.
What can cause an 1153 abend code?

Cause

The 1153 abend code can be caused by a corrupt index but it can also be caused by other things:

When specifying RETRIEVAL NOLOCK in the SYSGEN and a retrieval run unit reads a record being updated by another transaction.
When a retrieval run unit in local mode reads a record being updated by another transaction running under the CV or another batch job.

Environment

CA IDMS, all supported releases.

Resolution

Change the SYSGEN to remove RETRIEVAL NOLOCK,
or
Try re-running the job when there is no or low update activity.
