Symptoms

You occasionally have to delete the data dictionary and global table TAM spec files (dddict*, ddtext*, and glbltbl*) on your AS/400 Enterprise Server because they become corrupt.  You need some help preventing these production outages.  It appears to occur when you stop services and then initiate your server backups.

Your AS400 Enterprise Server is up to date on IBM PTFs.  You see the issue when some (not all) UBEs end in error. You restart/bounce services in the morning. Your logs show errors with "DDDict.xdb" that refers to an invalid entry.  In the past, GCS has recommended deleting the dddict.ddb, xdb, ddtext.ddb, xdb files to address this issue.  Is there a permanent solution to this issue?

Error in server log(s):
11 08:25:27.425171 jdetamp.c2073 TAMFetchByKey (/PD9/specfile/dddict.xdb): Invalid Index ID 2 (No Indices defined) (/PD9/specfile/dddict.xdb)
