Pinned topic Bringing up TS 4.2 Trial version CICS test regions and getting SOS

‏2012-04-09T17:54:34Z |
Trying to bring up a CICS TS 4.2 Trial test region, running z/OS 1.11 but getting a short on storage
condition.

DFHWB1007 CICSSS11 Initializing CICS Web environment.
DFHSM0133 CICSSS11 CICS is under stress (short on storage above 16MB).

Any clues as to what I may have missed? SIT parm settings, additional z/OS 1.11 PTFs required or other related upgrades?

    Hello,

    It sounds like the EDSALIM SIT parameter for your CICS region is low. What do you have this set at? If you increase this value that should hopefully allow you to bring up the CICS region.

    Cheers

    Here are the storage related settings that we have for the region that I am trying to bring up. Even if I set EDSALIM=500M, it still gets the same SOS condition
    DSALIM=5M
    EDSALIM=300M
    MEMLIMIT=50G
    TSMAINLIMIT=64M
    TRTABSZ=10000

    Regards,

    Hi Camilo,

    Sorry to hear that the changes to the storage settings have not solved the issue. Looking at your values you have posted they seem to be reasonable for a CICS region to start up. Just wondering have you tried running the CICS IVP to ensure that this starts correctly (this uses a standard set of SIT parameters), if that works then it sounds like its one of the SIT options that you have specified that is causing the issue. Also I assume this is a CICS region rather than a CMAS / LMAS.

    If you are familiar with formatting CICS System Dumps then it should be possible to identify which storage pool is using the storage and this might help narrow down what is happening during startup. If you format the SM part of the dump and look at the main areas this should identify initially which ExDSA is using the storage and then from that you can look at which subpools are using the storage.

    Hope that helps

    My first shot would be to remove the Web from Initializing.. and see what happens.. Crude but effective...

    Hi Camilo,

    Just wondering how you are getting on with this issue and whether you have managed to get a CICS TS V4.2 Developer Trial up and running.

    Cheers

    Adam,

    All is well. I found the culprit, an old DFHWBTC sitting in one of the override libraries in theDFHRPL concatenation. Currently testing TS 4.2
    with vendor products we have upgraded for compatibility.

    Thanks.
