Cause

This issue was identified as a JVM product defects and logged under
- APAR IV16278

Note: The problem does not exist in RDz upgrade but in a JVM upgrade possibly packaged within a z/OS PTF (for example Refresh Pack RSU1112).


Environment

Java virtual machine 1.6 SR9 FP 3 and higher.

Java virtual machine 1.6 SR10.

Java virtual machine 1.7.


Diagnosing the problem

Verify the JVM version used:

  • Run the java -version command
  • Check FEKLOGS

Resolving the problem

WORKAROUND:

  1. Install a JVM before 1.6 SR9 FP3.
    • JVM version 1.5
    • JVM version 1.6 SR8
    • JVM version 1.6 SR9
  2. Or Install JVM 7.0.0 SR5 or higher.
