Error description

  • ERROR DESCRIPTION:Ø
    Upgrading to CICS 5.4 and when I run DFHCSDUP, some of my
    programs are having their datalocation attribute changed. In
    CICS 5.4, the default for datalocation is any.
    
    The problem stems from if a program defined previously had
    taken the default, the part of the CSD record which dealt with
    datalocation would be x'00'. When this record was then read off
    the CSD, the default value would be applied and so it would
    have had a datalocation of below. Now at 5.4, these records are
    taking the new default of any.

    ****************************************************************
    Several default values have been changed in CICS TS 5.4 and
    because of some CSD records that were written many years ago
    when the default value was not saved to the CSD, these records
    now pick up the new default value. This results in the
    program datalocation being changed from below to any and the
    transaction taskdataloc being changed from below to any. This
    results in applications failing with ASRA or AEZC abends.
    The same problem can also occur for transaction options, SPURGE
    and TPURGE.

Problem conclusion

  • CICS CSD record processing has been changed to revert these
    default values to their original intended default values
    when the records are displayed or installed.
