Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All CICSPlex SM V4R1M0 and V4R2M0 Users      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:    At the direction of CPSM Support,    *
    *                      you log on to one of your MASes and     *
    *                      enter the COD0 debugging transaction.   *
    *                      You then execute the START command      *
    *                      for a method in the MAS major object    *
    *                      (for example, NQGR).  You receive the   *
    *                      following message:                      *
    *                                                              *
    *                           MODB is inactive for this major    *
    *                              object.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: After applying the PTF that resolves this    *
    *                 APAR, all MASes must be recycled to pick     *
    *                 up the new code.  Note that regions do not   *
    *                 need to be brought down and restarted at     *
    *                 the same time.                               *
    ****************************************************************
       To facilitate the START and ATTACH debugger commands, a
    dummy method, COD2, is inserted in the public method table
    for each CPSM major object.  The public method table for the
    MAS major object does not have any unused entries, so the
    COD2 method could not be defined in the MAS major object.
    As a result, message
    
         MODB is inactive for this major object.
    
    is issued when a START (in a MAS) or ATTACH (in a CMAS) command
    is entered for a method in the MAS major object.
    

Problem conclusion

  •    Module EYU9DBG1 (DBG1 - Debugging Transaction Main Program)
    was modified to attempt to add method COD2 to the private method
    table for a major object if no unused entries are found in the
    public table.
