  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • RC=8 RSN=96 is issued from a  WOLA service called
    from an IMS CCTL region.
    
    This happens with this environment: a CCTL coordinator ->
    DBCTL,
    in other words, using the same API as CICS ( Database
    Resource
    Adapter, DRA ).   The address space has multiple TCBs
    each of which is an IMS dependent region.
    
    This is reported on WAS - 16.0.0.3; z/OS Connect - 02.00.07

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WOLA services BBOA1* return RC=8 RSN=96 *
    *                      when called from an IMS CCTL region     *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    WOLA is attempting to use the external subsystem attach facility
    (ESAF) from an address space which is connected to IMS, but is
    not a full managed region (such as an MPR).  This results in a
    RC=8 RSN=96 from all calls to BBOA1* routines.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to prevent WOLA from using ESAF when the IMS
    region type does not allow it.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 17.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
