Error description

  • Your CICS region abended with abendu1800 .  There is no
    message that explains why CICS abended.  The messages that you
    do get are these:
    .
    You get several BPXP018I messages like this:
    BPXP018I THREAD 2420381000000000, IN PROCESS 84215338, ENDED
    WITHOUT BEING UNDUBBED WITH COMPLETION CODE 0033E000, AND REASON
    CODE 00000000.
    .
    And these messages:
    .
    AXMSC0041I Connection to server DFHNC.DFHNC001 has been closed.
    EYUXE0003I CICS01   End of Task entered for CICSPlex SM 320

      REASON=00000000
    .
    There is no dump unless you had previously set a SLIP like
    the following:

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All CICS Users.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The CICS region terminates with         *
    *                      an abendU1800 and MSGDFHKE1800          *
    *                      following an application abend0CA.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A transaction running on an L8 TCB suffers an abend 0CA.  While
    this abend is being processed, the runaway interval is reached
    and CICS attempts to abend the task.  DFHKETIX abends the TCB
    with an abend999 and DFHKESTX is called to process the abend and
    issue an abendAICA.  However, DFHKESTX is already handling the
    abend0CA and this results in the CICS region being terminated
    with an abend U1800 and message DFHKE1800 being issued.
    
    Additional keywords: KE1800 abend1800 abendS0CA S0CA AICA
                         ABEND_999 999
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHKETIX has been changed to not issue the abend 999 if flag
    KTCB_KESTX_IN_PROGRESS is on, indicating that DFHKESTX is
    already handling an abend.
