Error description

  • When WebSphere's FRR routine BBORFRR got control during
    handling of an abend, it SDUMPX macro to take a dump.  However,
    this resulted in ABEND S233 RC=10 and the original dump was
    never taken.  ABEND S233-10 means that caller passed incorrect
    parameters in a request for an SVC dump.
    
    Systrace shows:
    
    *RCVY  FRR  070C0000 A2DD01E8  84052000    >> orignal abend S052
    ...
    *SVCE     D 00000000_0139288C  00000010 A2DD0564 8423300
                                               >> ABEND S233-10
    
    PSW @ A2DD01E8 from FRR:
    
    ...\....BBORFRR 11/05/10
    BBORFRR 18.27           H28K510
    BOSS FRR Routine       .BFRRPRIM
    . .\...<......h....2i0..x....3..
    
    In this case, SUMLIST(StoreList(1)) was bad.
    
    SUMLP in SDUMP_PL control block is the pointer to the caller's
    summary list:
    SUMLP.... 0000236C
    
    This showed that a high bit was on in the first starting
    address.  This bit should never bit on.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WebSphere Application Server for z/OS   *
    *                      BBORFRR routine encounters an           *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Since the bgvt address is the last parameter on the calls to
    connect and disconnect RRS to Websphere, it gets its high
    order bit turned on. If the SRB connecting or disconnecting to
    RRS takes an abend, the FRR, BBORFRR, gets control and invokes
    SDUMP with the BGVT address in SUMLIST. SDUMP issues an abend
    233 reason code 10 because the bgvt address has its high order
    bit on.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to turn off the high order bit of the
    BGVT address when adding it to the SDUMP SUMLIST.
    
    APAR PM63264 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.45 of WebSphere Application Server V6.1
    and Fix Pack 8.0.0.4 of WebSphere Application Server V8.0.
    
    The fix will also be delivered as sysrouted APAR PM63265 in
    WebSphere Application Server V7.0 for z/OS Fix Pack 7.0.0.25.
