Issue/Introduction

I’ve successfully applied the key on the System Programmer test machine. However, when I start the tasks they abend with a U0913. I attempted to start the tasks before I applied the key and got the same error. And I can’t tell you if this ever worked on the System Programmer test machine. By any chance, can you tell me what the U0913 means? 

Cause

The USER 0913 abend is an indication of an invalid license key.  
Contact CA Licensing to obtain a current valid license key for the product and your CPU serial number(s).

Environment

Release:
Component: ALCMST

Resolution

As an alternative to the SMPE method of applying the license key with CYBALI39 for CA Alchemist, you can use AMASPZAP to apply the zap supplied by CA Licensing:
 
//********************************************* 
//* ZAP A LOAD MODULE 
//********************************************* 
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=AMASPZAP 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=X 
//SYSLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=....SSALLINK 
//SYSIN DD * 
 NAME ZDEDDB ZDEDDB 
 REP 0100 aaaaaaaa,bbbbbbbb,cccccccc,dddddddd 
 REP 0110 eeeeeeee

If the updates are not successful, follow the instructions provided by the utility messages.

For example:
AMA120I ZDEDDB   NO IDR SPACE - RE-LINK              
AMA127I UPDATES INHIBITED (NO OVERRIDE)    
         
             
Based on AMA127I message recommendations (see below), reran zap successfully with the IGNIDRFULL parm.

AMA120I mod NO IDR SPACE -- RE-LINK 
Explanation - A REP operation was to be performed on a module, but SPZAP found that no space is available in the IDR for maintenance information. 
System action - Message will be followed by either AMA127I or AMA128I. 
System programmer response - The indicated module must be reprocessed by the linkage editor so that the module will contain an additional IDR; then rerun the SPZAP job. 

AMA127I UPDATES INHIBITED (NO OVERRIDE) 
Explanation - This message is issued after message AMA120I to indicate inhibition of updates to the module because all IDR entries for that module have been filled. 
System action - Processing continues except for rejection of REP and IDR statements for this module. 
System programmer response - Re-link edit the module to create a new IDR, or rerun the job with IGNIDRFULL option specified.

Additional Information

You can also use AMASPZAP to verify that the license has been applied.
