Error description

  • In the process of shutting down a CICS TS v4.2 region it
    discovers that the CFDT server is down. So, the region
    generates the following message:
    
    DFHFC7085 applid On a request to process CLOSE for coupling
    facility data table xxxx for file DFHRSTAT, it has been found
    that the server for coupling facility data table pool DFHRSTAT,
    is down. The server should be restarted.
    
    The Information Center explains that if this request is a
    close, CICS can complete close processing as normal. But the
    CICS region reports the following message:
    
    DFHFC0002 applid A severe error (code X'2451') has occurred in
    module DFHFCDO. This message seems to be a bit servere and this
    exception of the server not active needs to be handled better.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Server error msg DFHFC0002 should not   *
    *                      be issued after DFHFC7085.              *

    ****************************************************************
    In the reported problem, a CFDT server had been shut down.
    A close of a CFDT was initiated by a task but because the CFDT
    server had gone away, an error message of DFHFC7085 was issued.
    However, the same task also issued a subsequent severe error
    message of DFHFC0002 which was inappropriate in this situation.
    
    This apar fixes the same problem as reported by PM48535 which
    was closed RET/AU.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHFCDO has been amended to only issue the DFHFC7085 message
    in the aforementioned scenario.
