    .
    DFHSM0002 CICSNAME A severe error (code X'4217') has occurred in

    Looking in the Internal Trace Table you see the following Entry:

    Backing up in the TRACE we can see this is due to 2 TASKs
    trying to Freemain the same address at the same time:

    ****************************************************************
    Message DFHSM0002 severe error code X'4217' is being issued
    because two Webservice transactions are both doing a COPY
    CONTAINER call to copy some bad XML to the DFHMLPCBADXML
    container. The COPY CONTAINER call first issues a FREEMAIN for
    this container storage, but in this case both transactions are
    attempting to FREEMAIN the same storage address, which results
    in this error. The DFHMLPCBADXML container is used for diagnosis
    and the storing of any bad XML.
    
    Keyword: msgDFHSM0002 SM0002
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHMLPC has been changed to add a lock around the COPY CONTAINER
    call when storing any bad XML into the DFHMLPCBADXML container.
    
    The CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V4.2 Trace Entries manual
    (SC34-7187-01) will be changed on page 726 in Table 161:
