    ****************************************************************
    This APAR provides a fix for following problems of HP Image
    Copy.
    1. ABEND S0C4 ( ABEND0C4 ) at FABJDMP9 occurs when HP Image Copy
       is run under IMS compatible JCL with Multiple steps HASH
       check.
    2. DEDB Pointer Checker issues unnecessary report header reports
       for every area when HP Image Copy runs under IMS Fast Path
       Basic Tools.
    3. ABEND S0C4 ( ABEND0C4 ) at FABJDPSB occurs when HP Image Copy
       uses DFSMSdss DUMP command and fails to open an empty DEDB.
    4. ABEND U0999 ( ABENDU0999 ) at FABJMAIN occurs when HP Image
       Copy processes only DEDB with DBALL=Y and HP pointer checker
       library is specified in STEPLIB.
    5. ABEND U3916 ( ABENDU3916 ) at FABJDPS7 occurs when HP Image
       Copy encounters an unrecoverable I/O error in an image copy
       data set for DEDB with HPIO=Y.
    
    The causes of the problems are as follows:
    1. HP Image Copy wrongly judges that the process is FASTIC
       because it uses nonexistent internal block under IMS
       compatible JCL. It is possible problem by storage condition.
    
    2. HP Image Copy function that is invoked by IMS Fast Path
       Basic Tools has problems on following DD for the DEDB Pointer
       Checker.
       - MSGOUT DD
       - REPORTS DD
    
       If these DD are defined as the sequential data set
       (DSORG=PS), Hash check result reports only one area.
       If these DD are defined as the partitioned data set
       (DSORG=PO),  the JOB terminates with ABEND S213-30 ( ABEND213
       RSN30 ).
       If these DD are defined as the SYSOUT, unnecessary report
       header reports for every area.
    
       The cause of this problem is that DEDB Pointer Checker is
       called for initialization many times by HP Image Copy.
    
    3. HP Image Copy does not clear the address of the freemained
       work area.
    
    4. HP Image Copy creates a parameter list with no entries for HP
       Pointer Checker in the DBALL check routine. HP Pointer
       Checker judges it as a bad parameter list and returns error
       return code to HP Image Copy.
    
    5. HP Image Copy unallocates an open ADS without closing.
    

Problem conclusion

  • FABJDMPN has been modified as follows:
    - Bypass FASTIC process under IMS compatible JCL.
    - Call the DEDB Pointer Checker with FUNC=INIT only once.
    
    FABJDBAL has been modified to return to FABJMAIN with RC=8 when
    it creates a parameter list with no entries for HP Pointer
    Checker.
    
    FABJMAIN has been modified as follows:
    - Change DBALL=Y to DBALL=N and bypass DBALL check routine when
      FABJDBAL returns with RC=8.
    - Change ABEND U0999 ( ABENDU0999 ) to ABEND U3999 ( ABENDU3999
      ) because ABEND U0999 is test ABEND code.
    
    FABJDFCN has been modified not to call FABJMDPN when the address
    of the freemained work area is cleared.
    
    FABJMDPN has been modified to clear the address of the
    freemained work area.
    
    FABJDPSN has been modified to unallocate an open ADS after
    closing.
    
    The following modules have been reassembled.
     FABJDFCA FABJDFCB FABJDFC7 FABJDFC8 FABJDFC9 FABJDMPA FABJDMPB
     FABJDMP7 FABJDMP8 FABJDMP9 FABJDPSA FABJDPSB FABJDPS7 FABJDPS8
     FABJDPS9 FABJMDPA FABJMDPB FABJMDP7 FABJMDP8 FABJMDP9
