    ****************************************************************
    File Manager for CICS uses the START command which internally
    creates a queue with a DF prefix. If a TSMODEL defines the DF
    prefix as recoverable then the START command behaves as though
    the PROTECT option of the START command had been specified.
    This means the started task will only be dispatched when the
    starting task has issued a syncpoint or completed. When
    accessing from ISPF, Batch or Eclipse the starting task waits
    for 25 seconds for a PORT number from the started task. The
    interval expires and the starting task completes without
    getting the PORT number for subsequent communication.
    

Problem conclusion

  • File Manager has been modified to issue a syncpoint after the
    START commands to ensure starting tasks are dispatched.
