Error description

  • You have made changes to an application that causes an overlay
    of storage, that results in a program check within the storage
    manager domain (DFHSM0001).  Your CICS partition terminates
    with DFHKE0303 but no dump is produced for debugging the
    recursive failure.

    ****************************************************************
    A DFHKE0303 message is issued when the Kernel domain detects
    that a task is abending recursively whilst attempting to recover
    from an abend.  A system dump should accompany a DFHKE0303
    message but a path exists in DFHKESTX where a KE0303 can be
    issued without taking a sysdump.
    
    Keywords: msgDFHKE0303 SDUMP
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHKESTX has been modified.  If the DFHKE0303 has been issued
    because KTCB_ERROR_MAX_EXCEEDED is set ( implying recovery is
    looping ) then routine TAKE_SDUMP will take a SYSDUMP prior
    to doing other recovery work which may lose control.
