VM:Secure had an abend with a PXG009 error message when updating a directory entry.
The full text of the error message was:
CA VM:Secure system abend PXG009 occurred at 0008279A.
In this case, the ALLOC MAP on the sysres volume was re-written while VM:Secure was active.
Rewritting the ALLOC MAP is not allowed when VM:Secure is up.
This error will typically cause VM:Secure to go down and automatically restart itself. That will clear the problem. If VM:Secure does not restart automatically, then do a Source start.
From the VM:Secure Administration Guide:
CA VM:Secure rewrites the volume allocation map on the object directory volume each time a directory is updated, caching information from that area.
To change anything affecting cylinder 0 of the volume, such as reallocating the volume using the CPFMTXA utility or relabeling the volume, perform the following steps:
1. Bring CA VM:Secure down.
2. Perform the activity to change the allocation map or label of the volume.
3. To have CA VM:Secure pick up the new allocation information, reinitialize CA VM:Secure using the SOURCE operand.
