Release: ESBUFO99000-3.2-Extended Support Basic-for UFO


UFO IOX messages are issued by the IOX Access Method, the batch utility IOXMAINT, and the online utility IOXUTIL.

The format of the IOX message is IOXNnnn.


N is the IOX component identifier. Values are:

0: IOX Access Method messages
5: IOXMAINT utility messages
8: IOXUTIL utility messages

nnn is the error code number
