APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A command such as EXEC CICS SEND CONTROL results in DFHMCX
    copying residual data for the MAPSETNAME and MAPNAME into the
    TCTTE extension, and an INQUIRE TERMINAL will return the
    invalid data instead of spaces.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All CICS users.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: INQUIRE TERMINAL may return a MAPNAME   *
    *                      and MAPSETNAME that contain hexadecimal *
    *                      characters instead of spaces.           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A SEND CONTROL command may move hexadecimal values into the
    TCTTE extension MAPNAME and MAPSETNAME fields. When an INQUIRE
    TERMINAL is issued for that terminal, the hexadecimal values
    will be returned as they were stored.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHMCX, all DFHMCP and all DFHM32 programs have been changed to
    move binary zeros to the MAPNAME and MAPSETNAME when a SEND
    CONTROL has been issued. The binary zeros will result in INQUIRE
    TERMINAL returning spaces.
