The OC1021 message in OMEGAMON II for CICS: Revisit and rewrite for customer clarity

I was recently contacted by my Level 3 representative and told about a customer who recently had a problem interpreting a message that was generated from OMEGAMON II for CICS. This message evidently has been out there in the OMEGAMON II for CICS world for a long time and some customers find it a little ambiguous. I suggested that maybe I should rewrite the message information sections. You know, the Explanation, System response and User response sections that comprise the overall message. He suggested to keep the message text the same (code change, the use of a message identifier, I, W, or E,etc...) for now. So along with some Level 3 guidance, I constructed new words and provided more precise information to clarify this customer situation and hopefully cut down any support contact in the future.
The following updated message will be published in the Troubleshooting Guide for the OMEGAMON II for CICS component in the forthcoming release of IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON for CICS on z/OS:
