Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users debugging COBOL programs in a CICS     *
    *                 environment who encounter persistent         *
    *                 problems when accessing SYSDEBUG files.      *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When debugging a COBOL program in a     *
    *                      CICS environment, a situation can       *
    *                      occur where COBOL cannot access the     *
    *                      SYSDEBUG side file to obtain debugging  *
    *                      information or extract the COBOL        *
    *                      program source.                         *
    *                                                              *
    *                      This situation is caused by CICS        *
    *                      enhancements which interfered           *
    *                      with the process used by COBOL to       *
    *                      allocate the SYSDEBUG side file. The    *
    *                      problem can occur when the TRANISO=YES  *
    *                      option is specified in the CICS start   *
    *                      up parameters and the transaction       *
    *                      being run with the Debug Tool contains  *
    *                      programs defined with the following     *
    *                      characteristics:                        *
    *                       EXECKEY(CICS) CONCURRENCY(THREADSAFE)  *
    *                       API(OPENAPI)                           *
    *                                                              *
    *                      The situation may be diagnosed by       *
    *                      looking for messages containing the     *
    *                      IGZ9SFU module name in the CICS         *
    *                      trace or AUXTRACE output. This problem  *
    *                      causes a trace message indicating that  *
    *                      ATTACH failed with a return code 32.    *
    *                                                              *
    *                      The trace message contains:             *
    *                         IGZ9SFU: ATTACH RC: 32               *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Changes to CICS created a situation where the process COBOL
    uses to allocate the SYSDEBUG side file will fail when a
    particular combination of CICS start up and program definition
    options are used. This prevents COBOL from accessing the
    SYSDEBUG side file.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • A new path has been added to handle cases where the access to
    the SYSDEBUG side file is denied due to ATTACH receiving a
    return code 32.
