Error description

  • OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface (e3270UI) Data Retrieval
    Agent (DRA) startup (KOBAGENT) in the TEMS'
    &rhilev.&rte.RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) takes a minimum of 3 minutes
    and 10 seconds for the Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager (TOM) address
    space to start communicating with the z/OS TEMS that starts up
    the DRA because the TEMS has a built-in 3-minute delay for the
    TEMS itself to completely come up prior to starting up any of
    the Agents.
    

Local fix

  • In certain cases, the moving of the KOBAGENT IRAMAN startup to
    the RKANCMDU(KDSSTART) member from RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) may start
    the agent before the TEMS CTDS STARTUP fully initializes.  The
    timeout issues may occasionally happen causing the TEMS to
    encounter these types of messages in the RKLVLOG:
    ===============================================================

    ========================================================
    
    If these conditions occur, the following circumvention may be
    used until a more permanent ITM and KOB resolution are
    available:
    1. In the RKANCMDU(KDSSTART) TEMS startup member, increase the
    delay interval in starting up the KOBAGENT
    DRA by increasing the "DELAY=hh:mm:ss" parameter as shown in the
    example below:
    AT ADD ID=KOB DELAY=00:01:00 CMD='IRAMAN KOBAGENT START'
                           =====
    
    2. If you have the following products installed and configured
    in the RTE where the TEMS is running:
    - OMEGAMON XE for CICS V5.1.0
    - OMEGAMON XE for DB2 V5.1.1
    - OMEGAMON XE on z/OS V5.1.0
    
    Then ensure that the following RKANDATV now-obsolete catalog
    files are removed from the TEMS RTE's RKANDATV library prior
    to starting up the TEMS:
    EDIT &rhilev.&rte.RKANDATV
    
    Command ===>
    
               Name     Prompt       Size   Created          Changed
    ID

    _________ KC5CAT
    _________ KD5ATR
    _________ KD5CAT
    
    
    _________ KHLATR
    _________ KHLCAT
    
    These products renamed their RKANDATV catalog and attribute
    files in the new upgraded versions, which cause the TEMS to log
    the following duplicate attribute messages:
    ===========================================================

    ==========================================================
    
    These duplicate attribute messages might contribute to the TEMS
    timeout so remove the obsolete RKANDATV files.  The ICAT or
    PARMGEN RTE Load job (pp#2xxxx ICAT / KCIJPLOD PARMGEN)
    typically deletes these members via its DELRUN step but if the
    RTE load job is not able to get exclusive enqueue on the
    RKANDATV library, the RTE Load job provides a warning condition
    code.

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • Support a faster KOBAGENT Data Retrieval Agent (DRA) startup  in
    the z/OS TEMS address space, when the TEMS starts up the   DRA
    by moving the KOBAGENT startup IRAMAN command from
    &rhilev.&rte.RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) member to
    &rhilev.&rte.RKANCMDU(KDSSTART) right after the "CTDS
    STARTUP"statement, which is the main TEMS startup command.
