The Answer is :

  Please contact the support center, as the usual cause is a thread
  failure or a thread that has completed with a qualified success
  within the ABS processing.  (Examples of failures that can trigger
  the ABS_XN_FAILED message can include the READATTR condition, for
  instance.)  The log file from the operation will be of interest to
  the support center.
  From a SHOW SAVE command, you might see one of the following:
    ABS_XN_FAILED : Completed with qualified success
    ABS_XN_FAILED : Completed with failure status
