Issue/Introduction

Steps to Activate CA 1  PTF RO61639  Health Checks Dynamically (without doing an IPL).

Cause

If the CA 1 Healthchecks are active over a long period of time (many weeks), S906-08 abends may be encountered. This occurs after 32767 program loads for TMSSVC.                                    

Environment

- Supported z/OS Level- CA Common Services r14.1- CA 1 Tape Management r12.6

Resolution

After the PTF has been applied and an LLA refresh has been done to make sure the new modules are in the linklist, do the following:

 

1. Display the task name for the currently running CA 1 Health Checks 

F CAHC,DISPLAY TASK 

 

2. Under the column titled "Description" find CA_1, then looking to the left find its name under the column titled "Task". 

 

3. Delete the CA 1 Health Check task 

F CAHC,DELETE OWNER***  

 

4. Run TMSINIT to reinitialize CA 1. This will reload the CA 1 Health Checks from linklist.
