Error description

  • Customer inadvertently attempted an ACLIB OLC with an incorrect
    IMS release level of members in the INACTIVE ACBLIB.
    DFSRMDM0 COMPARE call finds the first member ( a DEDB DMB )
    has differing timestamps, and sets DDIR1CHA and DDIR1DMB.
    Later the INSERT CHANGE call does detect that the INACTIVE
    member is at the wrong IMS release level and aborts the OLC,
    before creating the CHANGE list entry.
    DFS3496W is issued and OLC aborted. The DFSRMDM0 abort process
    works off the CHANGE list and this DMB isn't in it so DDIR1CHA
    and DDIR1DMB are never reset. The DMB shows up in subseqent
    OLCs as changing although in fact of course it is not.
    Later an FMTLIB OLC is done while a lot of PSBs were rescheduled
    for unrelated reasons and DFS0651W RC14 is issued and schedule
    fails. There is no way to reset the flags short of cycling IMS.

    ****************************************************************
    A /MODIFY PREPARE ACBLIB command failed with
    DFS3496W DMB XXXXXXXX IN INACTIVE ACBLIB NOT COMPATIBLE WITH
    IMS LEVEL, because an IMS version 12 ACBLIB was used.
    Much later, a FMTLIB online change was initiated while
    MPPs were recycled and lots of PSB schedule activity was
    initiated.  PSB scheduling failed for many PSBs with
    DFS0651W ERROR 14 READING PSB YYYYYYYY DBD XXXXXXXX,
    because database XXXXXXXX was still marked as being
    online changed from the previous ACBLIB online change
    prepare command that failed, even though it wasn't
    being online changed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • GEN:
    KEYWORDS:
    
    *** END IMS KEYWORDS ***
    DFSRMDM0 is corrected to reset bits indicating the database
    is being online changed, for the case where message
    DFS3496W is issued, in case there are no DDIRs on the
    change list.  Online change abort only cleans up DDIRs
    on the change list, so it can't be relied upon to
    cleanup DDIRs that weren't yet put on the change list
    when an error occurred.
