    *                      if the CSKP transaction is run from a   *

    ****************************************************************
    The CSKP transaction is designed to be started internally by
    CICS, but the code does not check that it has been started that
    way.
    
    If the CSKP transaction is run from a terminal and CICS has
    been started with JCT=NO, for example in CICSICCF, DFHAKP will
    issue an AK5802 abend and CICS will be terminated.

Problem conclusion

  • DFHAKP has been changed to issue an ARM0 transaction abend if
    the CSKP transaction has been started incorrectly.
    
    The CICS Transaction Server for VSE/ESA User's Handbook
    SX33-6101-00 has been changed on page 202 to include a
    description of abend code ARM0.
    
    Abend  Module  Explanation
    
    ARM0   DFHAKP  An attempt was made to attach a transaction
                   specifying DFHAKP as the program to be given
                   control, but the transaction was not
                   internally attached by CICS.
    
    The IBM z/VSE Messages and Codes Volume 3 SC34-2634-02
    Transaction Abends will be changed to include a
    description of abend code ARM0.
    
    ARM0
    Explanation: An attempt was made to attach a transaction
    specifying DFHAKP as the program to be given control, but the
    transaction was not internally attached by CICS.
    System action: The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS
    transaction dump.
    User response: Ensure that CSKP is not run from a terminal. If
    this is not the case, you need further assistance from IBM to
    resolve this problem. See Part 4 of the CICS Problem
    Determination Guide for guidance on how to proceed.
