Error description

  • This error can occur during qualification processing in the
    AGGELIG module, while processing elements stored in the
    Active Control Element Set (ACES) data area.
    An ABENDS0C4 can occur in AGGELIG near offset x'17FA' if an
    HourGlass dynamic refresh occurs while a qualification process
    involving multiple qualification phases is underway.  A
    situation can arise in which one or more initial qualification
    phases process using one ACES data area, then a dynamic refresh
    occurs, meanwhile subsequent qualification phases attempt to use
    the new ACES data area with pointers obtained from the previous
    ACES data area, resulting in a possible ABENDS0C4.
