Posted: Sat Sep 26, 2009 4:30 pm Post subject: Syncsort 1.3.2 question
Yesterday Syncsort V1.2.3 was upgraded to Syncsort V1.3.2 in our shop and after that we are getting lot of job failures in Sort step with S878 error
The failures are only for the the SORT jcls that updates an VSAM file.
The sort jcls that use vsam as input went fine without any issues. Similarly there is no issue with sequential files
As an workaround, we increased the region size of sort steps to 0M to resolve the abends. The input file contain only few records and the VSAM dispostion mode is OLD.

I ran the SYNCLIST program and compared the parameters of new version and old version and parameters are exactly matching
Appreciate if someone help me on this to provide a permanent solution to avoid the failures.

Suggest you get in touch with SyncSort support -- Problem may occur in an invoked sort where there is storage fragmentation of above the line storage and a small file is being sorted. _________________ Regards,
