  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a MERVA program requests a SNAP dump under CICS, not only
    the requested MERVA buffer but also many CICS areas are written
    to the CICS dump data set. This complicates finding the MERVA
    buffer in the dump and is not intended for a SNAP dump.

    This problem has been solved by specifying the dedicated
    buffer in the SEGMENTLIST option when taking a CICS dump.
