Recently upgraded z/VM and added new volumes to the VMIMAGE virtual machine directory.
After adding the new DASD to VMIMAGE and restarting SYBMON, we submitted a backup which failed.
The SYBMON virtual machine returned the following errors:
VMI044 - SYBDIREX did not create VMIMAGE CATJOB A
VMI011 - The VMIMAGE SYSTEM operation will not be run
If I revert VMIMAGE SELSYSRS and VMIMAGE SELECT to before I made changes for additional DASD, the command is successful.
How can I resolve this?
If you run both VMIMAGE BACKUP (runs first) and VMIMVAGE SYSTEM (runs after VMIMAGE BACKUP), you have to run the BACKUP step before you can run the SYSTEM step.
The first stage of the SYSTEM step is to create the RESTORE commands for what was backed up in the BACKUP step. Because that information is NOT FOUND, you are getting the failure trying to run (only) the SYSTEM step.
You must run VMIMAGE BACKUP first.
