Error description

  • An ABEND5C6 occurred with this dump title:
    CSQ1,ABN=5C6-00940029,U=SYSOPR  ,C=R3600.710.CMC -CSQMCIG2,
    Reason code 00940029 means "Bad URE log rec".
    The queue manager (CSQ1 in this example) receives a request to
    resolve an indoubt group UR, and tries to communicate with
    other queue managers in the Queue Sharing Group ( QSG ) to
    resolve it. As the other queue manager in question is not
    available (queue manager id 03), CSQ1 goes ahead and reads the
    logs for that queue manager. It finds an IMS Bridge checkpoint
    log record, containing TTE entries, which does not have the
    expected URE layout. This is unexpected and causes the abend to
    be issued.

      where 0094002A means "Bad RURE log rec".

    The IMS Bridge writes log records during checkpoints that look
    similar to URE and RURE log records. Under certain conditions,
    the code inquiring group indoubt units of work (CSQMCIG2)
    processes the IMS Bridge records, even though they should be
    ignored. CSQMCIG2 detects the missing eye catcher, and the abend
    is issued.

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to correctly ignore IMS Bridge log
    records and complete the inquire group ur request.
