Error description

  • After installing the 6.0.5 Refresh of PCOM version 6 on Windows
    7 32bit SP1, the 3270 emulator session will hang after logging
    off the TSO host.
    
    Closing the session window results in PCSWS process staying
    active. To start a new session, PCSWS and PCSCM need to be
    stopped from Task Manager.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of PCOM Keep Alive                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 3270 display session hang when logoff   *
    *                      from TSO with automatic disconnect set  *
    *                      in host side and Keep Alive enabled in  *
    *                      the PCOM session profile.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When PCOM Keep Alive is set in the 3270 session profile:
    
    [KeepAlive]
    EnableTelnetKeepAlive=Y
    
    and the user logs off a TSO host that has Automatic Disconnect
    set in the host LU, the session will hang. This is caused by
    the CreateThread() for Send_KeepAlive() never completing due
    to the timing of the function call.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PCSTLNET.DLL has been changed to add a delay after the
    CreateThread() for Send_KeepAlive() in the send monitoring
    thread function to ensure that Send_KeepAlive() was created
    successfully.
    
    Fix is scheduled for PCOM 6.0.7 Refresh Pack
