Error description

  • This abend means:
    Abend DC3 RC=0A150001
    A WebSphere Application Server for z/OS attempted to change
    code levels for a node that still has servers active at a
    different code level.
    Change the server to use the same code level as the other
    servers in the node, or bring down the other servers in the
    node and change them to use the same code level as the server
    that failed to start, then restart the server(s).
    
    In this case, the use count for the node incorrect.  So even
    though all servers in the node are down, this abend happens
    when trying to start the server at different fix pack level.
    

Local fix

  • The use count is kept a control block that is allocated when
    the first server in the cell is started.  To get out of this
    issue you need to IPL.  If this is not an option, open a pmr
    asking for a tool that can be run (with all servers in the cell
    down) that cleans up this control block so when the first
    server is started in the cell, the control block is
    re-allocated.

    ABENDDC3 RSN=0A150001 is issued during the initialization of a
    daemon or server.   The starting server is attempting to
    replace
    the node code level, but the existing code level is still being
    used by active address spaces.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been added to server registration path (bbodrgs.plx)
    when a new code level is supplied.
    
    The addition on this path is to verify the use count by
    scanning for active users.  For each found user a new message
    will be issued identifying the starting server and the current
    user: BBOO0425E.
    
    If no active users were detected, then the current PCQE will
    be marked inactive and the target node's code level will be
    updated and the server will be allowed to start.  Otherwise,
    ABEND DC3 with reason code 0A150001 will be issued following
    any BBOO0425E messages.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.15.  Please refer to the Recommended
