APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You use the WUI or other API program (such as the CICS Explorer)
    to install a SYSLINK definition. On the install request, you use
    the STATE CHECK (STATECHK) set to YES option. CPSM finds no
    errors, but does not continue with the install of the resource
    (as it would with other types of resource installs.)
    .
    There are also instances where a STATECHK fails when it should
    not, or returns OK when it really should fail.

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: After applying the PTF that resolves this    *
    *                 APAR, all CMASes and MASes must be           *
    *                 restarted.  Note that the restarts do not    *
    *                 need to occur at the same time.              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the state check option is used for a dynamic SYSLINK
    install, method EYU0TALI (TALI) in the MP CMAS builds a list of
    all definitions to be installed, and passes this to the
    apropriate MASes, indicating that the definitions should only be
    state checked.  This drives method EYU0BNSC (BNSC) in the MASes,
    which checks if the definitions that are to be installed are
    already installed in the MAS.  If they are, and their state is
    not consistent with them being re-installed, then BNSC returns a
    state error to TALI, which reports the errors and terminates the
    install process.  If the definitions are not installed, or are
    in a state that allows them to be re-installed, then BNSC
    returns an OK status to TALI, which then should resend the
    definitions to the MASes with an indication that they should be
    installed.
    
    Part of the information passed to BNSC by TALI, along with logic
    errors in BNSC, can result in BNSC performing SYSLINK state
    check processing incorrectly.
    
    A logic error in TALI results it it not driving the install
    process if BNSC returns an OK response for a state check.
    

Problem conclusion

  • BNSC has been updated to correct the logic errors that can cause
    it to perform SYSLINK state check processing incorrectly.
    
    TALI has been updated to pass the proper information to BNSC so
    that it can perform SYSLINK state check processing correctly.
    TALI has also been updated to properly drive the install process
    when BNSC returns an OK status for state check processing.
