Error description

  • When REU=Y is specified, some requests which attempt to
    over-ride the link task transaction ID will be allowed to
    proceed, while others will fail.  All tasks which attempt to
    over-ride the link task transaction ID should fail when REU=Y is
    specified.

    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0, V8.0, and V8.5                 *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WOLA outbound requests to CICS are not  *
    *                      rejected when REU=Y is specified and    *
    *                      the link task transaction ID is         *
    *                      changed.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The CICS link server supplied with the WebSphere Optimized
    Local Adapters (WOLA) allows the transaction ID used to dispach
    work in CICS to be changed.  The default value is BBO#.  The
    default can be changed when the link server is started, or can
    be changed by each request processed by the link server.
    Request level changes to the transaction ID can be made by
    specifying the "LinkTaskTranID" property on a WOLA connection
    factory, or by calling setLinkTaskTranID() on the WOLA
    ConnectionSpecImpl object.  When the link server is started
    with the parameter REU=Y, the transaction ID cannot be changed
    by an individual request because the link task is re-used for
    each request.
    In some cases, the link task transaction ID passed by a request
    is ignored by the link server.  This can cause some requests
    to complete successfully, even though they should have been
    rejected because REU=Y was specified.
