Jobs using CA11 fails with error U11-118 INITIALIZATION FAILED, SSN=nnnn NOT FOUND along with abend U0299.
U11-118 can occur if CAIRIM did not initialize the CA 11 subsystem or CA 11 is not up or a previous initialization of CA 11 failed. To address this error follow the steps below:
1. Start CAIRIM to successfully initialize the CA 11 subsystem.
2. If CAIRIM has already initialized the CA 11 subsystem, start the CA 11 STC.
NOTE: It is possible that a previous attempt to start CA 11 failed. Check
the CA 11 joblog listing for other messages that caused the start up
to fail and take the necessary action to correct them.
The current documentation has a mix up with the U11-118 message due to the same message ID being inadvertently being used for two different messages. This is slated to be updated.
If the text of your U11-118 message is 'INITIALIZATION FAILED, SSN=nnnn NOT FOUND’ instead of ‘DYNCLEAN=NO NOT ALLOWED; DYNAMICALLY CREATED DD RECORDS EXIST; MANUAL FORMAT REQUIRED’ then you do not have an issue with DYNCLEAN. The issue in this case is related to the failure with the initialization of CA 11. If the text of your U11-118 messages refers to DYNCLEAN, please see the CA 11 Message Guide for the appropriate action for to take.
