  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a customer uses WOLA in CICS and either:
    - Starts a Registrationin CICS
        or
      - Starts a Link Server in CICS
     - AND the BBOATRUE Program that is being used in the CICS
       Address Space is the BBOATRUE delivered in FixPack 9.0.0.5
     - AND the level of CICS is less than Level 5.4
    .
     There will be an infinite loop in the CICS Address Space.
     The external symptom from the CICS perspective will be that
     the 'BBOC' transaction will hang / spin.
    

Local fix

  • There are multiple Local Fixes:
    1) Use a copy of BBOATRUE from a previous version of WebSphere.
       BBOATRUE is installed in CICS, and you can use a version of
       BBOATRUE from Version 9.0.0.x (not 9.0.0.5) or 8.5.5.x
    2) Apply iFix for this APAR
    3) Upgrade CICS to 5.4 level.
