APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • ABEND0C4-4 running RACF-Offline in batch can be seen.
    One circumstance seen is when messages B8R350W and B8R351A are
    issued, for example:
    B8R350W Possible incorrect sharing of RACF database with
    sysplex PLEX1
    B8R351A Enter "CONTINUE" or "END"
    B8R240E ESTAC: Task ABENDed, Code=0C4, cleanup and exit
    

Local fix

  • To avoid being prompted with message B8R350W each time that you
    use this database, use a USERID with system-SPECIAL to remove
    the IRRPLEX_* profiles in the GXFACILI resource class from the
    Offline database using RACF-Offline from TSO.
