Issue/Introduction

Working with the interface fron CA SYSVIEW to CA SYSVIEW for DB2, when user types the IDB2 command to acces the CA SYSVIEW for DB2 screens got the IDB2805E error message.
 
IDB2805E IDB2 PC INTERFACE NOT AVAILABLE
 
Checked the PCSSID parameter to identify the PC Owner Task in all started task and in all of them it was fine, PCSSID has the default value DBGI.

Environment

Release:
Component: IDB2

Resolution

In the VTAM User Interface started task the parameters in EXEC card were as follows.
 
PARM='IDB2WIN6,IDB2USER,DBGI'

IDB2USER was wrong, the right value is IDB2.
 
With PARM='IDB2WIN6,IDB2,DBGI' the IDB2 command in CA SYSVIEW worked fine.
 
The VTAM User Interface does not check for wrong values in the PARM parameters, these parameters depend on posisition, the second parameter has to be four characters so the PCSSID in third parameter is read correctly.
