Error description

  • You are receiving msgDFHSO0002 Severe Error code x'080C' which
    is issued due to the SOSE_GSK_RETURN_CODE and it has a value
    of x'FFFFF3E4'. This equates to a value of -3100.
    
    We consulted the SSL support group and they do not have a
    RETURN_CODE of -3100.
    
    DFHSOSE has no specific processing to handle this return code
    so message DFHSO0002 is produced with an SO0002 system dump.
    
    GSK_UNKNOWN_RETURN_CODE is a result of client action, so the
    DFHSO0002 message and dump are unnecessary.  This error
    should be reported by an exception trace entry similar to
    other client based errors.

    *                      HAS OCCURRED IN DFHSOSE                 *

    ****************************************************************
    When using SSL with IBM or CSI TCP/IP, it is possible to receive
    one or more DFHSO0002 messages specifying severe error (code
    X'080C') and SO0002 abend dumps.
    
    When a -3100 (X'FFFFF3E4') return code is received in a
    secure_soc_init request, CICS treats the value as a
    disaster and produces the DFHSO0002 message and an SO0002 dump.
    
    This error will also be seen as an SO 080C exception trace
    entry in the internal trace table.
    
    Additional keywords: MSGDFHSO0002
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHSOSE has been changed to treat -3100 as an exception and will
    not produce a DFHSO0002 message and SO0002 dump.
    
    An SO 080C exception trace entry will still be produced.
