Issue/Introduction

Description:

Step 10 of the configuration of CA Deliver 'create initialization parameter statements' is failing with an SB14 reason 4 because there's already an empty RMOPARMS member in the output dataset. We saw this happening during a configuration of CA Deliver r12.0 and using Syncsort MFX for z/OS in this environment.

Below are the results of this action:

Service Return code: SB14

Service Completion code: 0

The MSM message displayed is:

MSMC0234E Service execute IEBGENER error: ABEND=SB14 U0000 REASON=00000004

Solution:

The root cause of this SB14-04 ABEND is the result of a defect in the Syncsort MFX for z/OS program product. SYNCSORT replaces the IBM IEBGENER program with a program named SYNCGENR. That program has a defect where it OPENs the data set allocated to SYSPRINT with the EXTEND option, even if the data set allocated to SYSPRINT is a member of a PDS(in this case the member called RMOPARMS). But a member of a PDS cannot be extended and any attempt to extend a PDS member fails with a SB14-04 ABEND during CLOSE.

SYNCSORT APAR SY70470 corrects this defect.

Please contact Syncsort MFX for z/OS support to get current maintenance.
