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?

Environment

CA IDMS, all supported releases.

Cause

Resolution

or
Try re-running the job when there is no or low update activity.
