In a technote from IBM Support, a customer was running the APPLY step during their installation of OMEGAMON components and encountered multiple GIM processing error messages like the following:
GIM40901E ** COPY PROCESSING TO THE TKANCUS LIBRARY FAILED FOR CLIST KOBHNSWA IN SYSMOD HKOB700. THE RETURN CODE (08) EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE VALUE. DATE 12.187 - TIME 12:27:24 - SEQUENCE NUMBER 000114
GIM30227E ** APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD HKOB620 BECAUSE PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD HKOB700. SYSMOD HKOB700 CONTAINS HIGHER LEVELS OF COMMON ELEMENTS.
GIM30227E ** APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD UA50414 BECAUSE PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD HKOB700. SYSMOD HKOB700 CONTAINS HIGHER LEVELS OF COMMON ELEMENTS.
GIM30216I APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD HKOB700. SYSTEM UTILITY PROCESSING FAILED FOR AN ELEMENT IN HKOB700.
GIM30221E ** APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD HKC5510. PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD HKOB700, WHICH WAS SPECIFIED ON THE ++VER REQ OPERAND.
GIM40700E ** SMP/E PROCESSING TO THE TKANEXEC LIBRARY FAILED FOR EXEC KCPNAV2 IN SYSMOD HKC5510. NON-BLANK DATA WOULD HAVE BEEN TRUNCATED DATE 12.195 - TIME 12:40:29
Note, the aforementioned GIM PROCESSING FAILED messages are usually related to space and directory block issues. The existing database attributes (TKANEXEC in the above example) were not the values specified in the Program Directory for the product involved. The product referenced in the messages above was OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS. The Program Directory specified the Record Format as VB and Record Length specified as 255.
Once the customer specified the attribute values provided in the Program Directory for their product, then the APPLY job ran successfully and did not produce any GIM error messages.
