Question & Answer


Question

When starting up standalone Liberty CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) regions, why am I receiving the following exception:

 LP2SSA6 : ?err? : java.rmi.server.ExportException: Port already in use:  
 0; nested exception is:
 .java.net.BindException: EDC8116I Address not available. (Bind failed)                  
 and 
 Caused by: com.ibm.msg.client.jms.DetailedIllegalStateException:

Answer

After adding an EXEC statement for PGM=BPXTCAFF,PARM=TCPIP to the JCL for the CICS region's running standalone Liberty, the 'MQCC_FAILED' with reason '2538' 'MQRC_HOST_NOT_AVAILABLE' error no longer occurred and the standalone Liberty CICS regions started.
