Error description

  • Going through the areas of the CICS code for error
    handling involving Alternate Indexes we see the following for
    VSAM Component Checking:
    
    Component codes for logical errors (return code 8)
     FCVSBINC BIT(8) CONSTANT('01'X), /* Base cluster maybe
                                      /* incorrect
     FCVSAINC BIT(8) CONSTANT('03'X), /* Alternate index
                                      /* maybe incorrect
     FCVSUINC BIT(8) CONSTANT('05'X); /* Upgrade set maybe
    
    This is fine for z/OS VSAM. VSE VSAM will be returning in
    RPLFDB2 at x'26' in the RPL:
    
     RPLFDB2 Function type code:
     RPLFUPG X' 4' Upgrade processing
     RPLFAIX X' 2' AIX processing
     RPLFINC X' 1' Upgrade set is incorrect
    
    These do not match with what CICS has coded for
    Component codes for logical errors in DFHFCVS. We will never put
    out the DFHFC0313 and DFHFC0314 messages correctly. Also, the
    message description in the DFHFC0313 says:
    
     X'00' or X'01'--base cluster.
     X'02' or X'03'--alternate index.
     X'04' or X'05'--upgrade set.

    Code in DFHFCVS1 which checks the response from VSAM uses values
    x'03' and x'05' to test whether messages DFHFC0313 or DFHFC0314
    should be issued for these responses but, because these are the
    values for z/OS VSAM rather than z/VSE VSAM, the messages are
    not issued.
    Keywords: FC0313 FC0314
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHFCVS and DFHFCVS1 have been changed to test the correct z/VSE
    values of x'02' and x'04' for the alternate index processing and
    upgrade set processing error conditions, respectively.
    The CICS Transaction Server for VSE/ESA Messages and Codes
    Release 1 GC34-5561-08 manual should be changed to remove the
    codes x'00', x'03' and x'05' from the explanation of message
    DFHFC0313. The same change should be made to the z/VSE Version 5
    Messages and Codes Volume 3 SC34-2684-00 manual as well as
    inserting a description of message DFHFC0314.
