Question & Answer


Question

After upgrading a z/VSE system from V5.2 to V6.1, one of my CICS regions started abending with message DFHUS0002 A severe error (code x'0304') has occurred in module DFHUSAD.

I am using CA Top Secret from CA Technologies as my security manager. What could be wrong?

Answer

Apply CA Top Secret fix number RO92565. Contact CA Technologies if you need additional assistance.

The severe error x'0304' translates to USAD_INVALID_FORMAT. The trace within the CICS dump produced will show:
