  1. Check if ‘AOF REXX WorkSpace’ field is blank or reports any garbage value

  2. If yes, set it to the default which should be 40960 and save with PF3.

AOF REXX WorkSpace

This overrides the default size of the AOF REXX WorkSpace size (default is 1.5m).  Setting of this value is likely to be done only when requested by CA OPS/MVS technical support. This value also determines the work space size used by the AutoMate/MVS to CA OPS/MVS conversion and rule management utilities.
