Error description

  • Defect 24188
    The design for ESI over IPIC (LID 711) states that the
    capability exchange response (IS 2) will have a bit
    'is_eci' set if the CICS region is able to support ESI
    requests from the partner.
    .
    This bit is currently not set on the capability exchange
    response meaning the connection initiator does not know
    whether IS9 requests sent to the region will be honoured
    or cause a failure.
    .
