    ****************************************************************
      User ran a COPY utility job which intermittently failed
    with ABEND04E RC00E4002E in DSNUGSUU indicating an invalid
    length was detected for one of the records written to
    directory tables SYSUTIL/SYSUTILX in database DSNDB01.
      Analysis of several incidents showed that these ABENDs were
    always falsely detecting an invalid length and that the true
    lengths were correct.
      This happened due to a logic error affecting very large
    internal DB2 control blocks when processed together with
    smaller control blocks under certain specific circumstances.
      Although this problem could occur for any utility, all known
    cases were for COPY utility, especially with FULL NO
    specified or CHANGELIMIT leading to an incremental copy.
    
    additional keywords: rc9 errorcode xerrorloc 9
    

Problem conclusion

  •   DB2 utility code was changed to correct the logic used to
    validate the lengths of records to be saved in SYSUTIL/SYSUTILX.
