Error description

  • Crash in module bboodsab.plx during first start of a zWAS server
    after an IPL. Subsequent starts of the same server work fine.
    Problem is due to a window where some ACRW threads for hang
    detection are created prior to full initialization of all the
    subcomponents, including SMF support and availablity of the SMF
    dataspace.
    In a dump the failing thread native stack will include:
    --
    bboodsab(SmfActivityPlxClassData*,SMFActivity::ActivityType*
    SMFActivity::activityBegins(SMFActivity::ActivityType)
    ACR_ExecutionThread::ProcessInboundRequest(acrwObj*,ThreadCl

    ****************************************************************
    ABEND0C4/ABENDS0C4 occurs in bboodsab because the SMF
    dataspace has not been created yet. The control region thread
    monitor thread decided to create threads before everything
    needed by those threads was initialized.
