Error description

  • AXFV abend occurs after migrating from CICS TS 4.1 to 5.1. The
    problem only happens during PLTPI processing while running under
    system task CPLT. During PLT 's, a program issues a LINK to
    another program specifying a SYSID. DFHXFP calls DFHMNAD for
    INQUIRE_ASSOCIATED_DATA. DFHMNAD checks for a monitoring control
    block called an ADCB. CPLT is a system task and system tasks
    don't have an ADCB so DFHMNAD returns to DFHXFP with a NOT_FOUND
    error. Any non-okay response causes DFHXFP to issue the AXFV
    abend.

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    During second phase PLT, a program runs and issues an EXEC CICS
    LINK command, specifying a SYSID. The named SYSID is another
    CICS system connected over MRO.
    DFHXFP TRANSFORMER_1 runs, and attempts to calculate the length
    of any application context data. To do this a call to DFHMNAD
    INQUIRE_ASSOCIATED_DATA is made. This fails with an exception,
    reason MNAD_NOT_FOUND. The EXCEPTION response causes the CPLT
    system transaction to fail with abendAXFV.
    CICS system transactions do not have associated data so the
    NOT_FOUND response is correct and DFHXFP should not abend in
    this case.

Problem conclusion

  • DFHXFP has been altered to tolerate a NOT_FOUND response from
    DFHMNAD INQUIRE_ASSOCIATED_DATA.
