Error description

  • A NetView/FTP SNA server went into loop when attempted to
    transfer a PDS dataset.
    The loop occurred in module DVGMSPO around offset 2da4 - 2dea.
    This happened when a member of the PDS dataset contained a
    wrong record. The dataset was RECFM=VBM and there was a record
    which Length field in the RDW was zero.
    When attempted to print the contents of the member by using
    AMS PRINT, IEF036I 002-04 error was issued. The RC=4 indicated
    "The RDW specifies a length less than 4."
    The trigger of the loop was a wrong dataset but the server
    should avoid such a loop.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Whenever a PDS member has RDW=0 it      *
    *                      causes a neverending loop.              *

    * RECOMMENDATION: APPLY THE PTF FIXING THIS APAR               *
    ****************************************************************
    RDW=0 is not allowed, but it could be due to a file corruption.
    In this case we must avoid the neverending loop.
