Problem summary

  • PAR NUMBER:  PJ40711
    PRODUCT:  z/TPF
    FUNCTIONAL AREA:  RECORD CACHE SUBSYSTEM
    SHIPPED IN PUT:  10
    
    ABSTRACT:
    A DASD subsystem ID (SSID) changed during a VM Hyperswap
    causing a device to be cross-linked on two subsystem status
    table (SSST) chains. This resulted in a CYEA CTL-10 and system
    hang.

    COMMENTS:
    When a VM Hyperswap occurred and switched DASD controllers, a
    state-change-pending interrupt was presented triggering TPF to
    query status. The query returned a different SSID than was
    detected at IPL time when the reporting device was mounted.
    Since the new SSID was not found in the SSST, TPF created a new
    entry and chained the reporting device to it, assuming it was a
    new device entering the configuration for the first time. Since
    the device was already mounted, this action caused it to be
    cross-linked on two SSST chains. A CTL-10 in CYEA occurred
    followed by a system hang, since it was unable to react to
    subsequent state change interrupts. A manual IPL was required.
    

Problem conclusion

  • SOLUTION:
    CSS2.ASM has been modified to check if a device is already
    mounted on another SSST chain, when the SSID reported following
    a state-change is not found in the SSST. If it is already
    mounted, the old SSID and existing SSST slot will be reused to
    avoid cross-linking problems. CSS2.ASM will issue a SNAPC dump
    to capture diagnostic data. An IPL is recommended, at the
    earliest convenience, to rebuild the SSST with the current
    SSIDs.
    
    COREQS: NO
    None.
    
    MIGRATION CONSIDERATIONS: YES
    Functional, automation, and operation changes:
    A new snapc dump, 001245, has been created to report an SSID
    mismatch.
