Error description

  • The SMF120 Subtype 9 field SMF1209CJ represents the Completion
    minor code for the request.  Normally this value is 0, but if
    an error occurs it will contain 8 hex digits representing the
    minor code of the error.  These minor codes are normally
    written in big-endian format, but in some cases the field may
    record it in little-endian format.
    
    For instance, a request timed out and produced the following
    PlatformNeutralRequestInfoSection:
    Triplet #: 3; Type: PlatformNeutralRequestInfoSection;
        Version                    : 1;
        Dispatch Servant PID (HEX)  * 00000000 -------- --------
    -------- *
        Dispatch Task ID            * 00000000 00000000 --------
    -------- *
        Dispatch TCB CPU           : -9823;
        Completion Minor Code       * bb12c2c9 -------- --------
    -------- *
        Reserved                    * 00000000 -------- --------
    -------- *
        Request Type               : 4 (MDB Plan "A");
        Reserved                    * 00000000 00000000 00000000
    00000000 *
                                    * 00000000 00000000 00000000
    00000000 *
    
    The Completion Minor Code is shown as bb12c2c9, but should
    really be c9c212bb
    

Local fix

  • Manually read the completion minor code in little-endian order.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 V8.0 and V8.5 for z/OS          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: SMF1209CJ is written in little-endian   *
    *                      for MDB Plan A requests.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using the listening in the controller variant of a ASF
    message-driven beans with WebSphere MQ as the messaging
    provider, if a request encounters an error the minor code is
    placed in SMF 120 Subtype 9 field SMF1209CJ. The minor code is
    written in little-endian. It should be written in big-endian.
