On November 7 I described How
If you use the z/VSE IUI dialog to apply PTFs: 1 Installation - 4 IBM Service - 2 PTF Handling - Apply PTFs and submit the prepared job, the job consists of several job steps. If you create that job to apply High Level Assembler (HLASM) PTFs containing I-books, the job step DTRPTF05 may fail with:
0S03I PROGRAM CHECK INTERRUPTION - HEX LOCATION xxxxxxx -
INTERRUPTION CODE 04 - PROTECTION EXCEPTION
0S00I JOB DTRPTF05 CANCELED
In DTRPTF05 the HLASM is used to catalog I-book members into an ICCF library. If HLASM phases are in the SVA, the usage of HLASM prior to reloading the phases into the SVA may suffer from inconsistencies.
To solve this problem perform the following steps:
1) Reply EXIT to job step DTRPTFAB to exit PTF application.
2) Resolve the inconsistency by
a) Reloading the HLASM phase into the SVA
Run in partition BG
// SET SDL
b) Or IPL the system
3) Release job DTRPTFAB
4) Answer RESUME to start the job DTRPTF05 again.
