Error description

  • You will find that trying to do any CICS verbx on that dump will
    fail with an abend0c4 in DFHPD670.
    .
    This problem happens on dumps where the last TCB is a non-CICS
    TCB that has an address for TCBCAUF .
    .
    In the submitted dump, using Summ Format and going to the last
    TCB, the top RB shows this to be a IDIDA TCB.  And the TCBCAUF
    field contains an address.
