    Updated Message:
    
    ERB430I ZZ: MONITOR I DATA GATHERER module.
    interface INTERFACE FAILED.
    RETURN CODE: rc REASON CODE: rsn. Explanation.
    
    Explanation: The RMF Monitor I data gatherer module received
    a return code from the interface interface. The return code
    and reason code are reported. Additional error information
    is given by the explanation.
    
    System action:
    If issued by module ERBMFSMS, the message reports that the SMS
    interface has failed. RMF continues, but storage group
    information cannot be updated.
    If issued by module ERBCNFSR, RMF could not get the IOS enqueue
    in order to serialize initial processing with IOS configuration
    activity. RMF continues processing but may have to retry
    initialization several times because of listen exit processing o
    IOS configuration change events.
    If issued by module ERBMFICY or ERBMFDCY, the message reports
    that the CRYPTO interface has failed. RMF continues, but does no
    longer collect information about crypto devices in SMF 70-2
    records.
    If issued by module ERBMFIZS or ERBMFDTS, the message reports
    that the HISMT interface has failed. RMF continues, but the
    multithreading related information provided in SMF 70, 71, and 7
    records can be inconsistent.
    
    System programmer response:
    For SMS interface errors please refer to the DFSMS/dfp Diagnose
    Reference for a description of the return and reason codes. SMS
    subsystem interface reason code 5009 indicates that the
    interface was not able to allocate storage in the RMF address sp
    In this case the RMF region size should be increased.
    For CRYPTO interface errors please search the problem reporting
    data bases for a RMF fix providing support for additional
    crypto devices or report the problem to the IBM Support Center.
    For HISMT interface errors please report the problem to the IBM
    Support Center.
    
    Workstation Features:
    If you use the RMF spreadsheet reporter, please download and
    install the latest version from the RMF web site:
