    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Message DFHIR3780 may contain an        *
    *                      invalid reason code.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a logon to DFHIRP fails, message DFHIR3780 is
    issued with a return code and reason code returned by
    DFHIRP.
    
    The reason code may contain an invalid value e.g.
    
    DFHIR3780 applid UNABLE TO START INTERREGION COMMUNICATION.
              RETURN CODE=X'0000003C', REASON CODE=X'00000358'
    
    The return code is documented, but the reason code is not,
    and the reason code is not a valid value in this case.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The DFHIRP logon routine has been changed to return a valid
    value in the reason code.
