REXX error when trying to attach a large number of files using WAI
Receiving a REXX error when attaching files to an InfoMan record using Web Access for Information Management for z/OS (WAI)
Check the HTTPD Error log file for the following error:
95 *-* ADDRESS LINKMVS 'IMWXRD body'
17/Jan/2008:10:20:58 +0500 +++ RC(-2) +++
limitation of the interface being used by the IMWXRD program.
Resolving the problem
The RC(-2) error is due to a limitation of the interface being used by the IMWXRD program.
Basically, no MVS type parameter can pass a value bigger than 32767.
The RC(-2) is documented in the "TSO/E REXX Reference" (SA22-7790-05) Chapter 2 under the heading "Host Command Environments for Linking to and Attaching Programs".
IMWXRD can be changed. This issue was resolved by changing the REXX exec that is using IMWXRD to retrieve 32K at a time and then reassemble the 32K segments. There is an example in the BLQ.V1R2M0.ABLMREXX(BLQWRPFA) sample.
