Resolution

The problem is there is a dataset violation occurring against the region acid DB2C=STC. The abend occurs under Facility DB2TEST which is set up with the ABEND setting. This tells TSS to cause an S913 abend on a security violation. Looking at the settings here at CA and can see the same facility is set to NOABEND. This facility is distributed with NOABEND set so it had to have been changed at some time. We recommend the following: 
1) TSS MODI FAC(DB2TEST=NOABEND) 
- This will temporarily set the facility to not cause these abends on security violations. 
2) Examine your TSS PARMFILE member used at startup looking for a setting which looks something like this: 
- FAC(DB2TEST=ABEND) 
- Find this statement and remove it from your startup parms.
