Issue/Introduction

I have read Document ID : KB000093284, some of the symptoms are the same like in this document ; but nothing is getting better  (because sometimes I get this message from CICS : ICSCDISP0XE - THE "LOCATE PERMANENT STORAGE" OF THE SCF SCB FAILED - -> RC=0016).
This occurs with one of the user programs and in only one CICS.
They have not been able to reproduce the problem anywhere else.

Cause

 By default all IDEAL MODULEs for IDEAL PROGRAMs are linkedited AMODE(31),RMODE(ANY). 
This is a performance consideration and you definitely do NOT want to override the LINKEDIT in IDEAL CREATE MODULE jobs to be 24. Please note that the MODULEs for PANELs must still be linkedited Amode(24),Rmode(24). 

The test fix will correct IDEAL code to prevent a fixed-point overflow exception when doing arithmetic. Test fix ST07679 is resolving the same basic problem that RO99884 resolved. In both cases, we cannot tell exactly how or why the data for the arithmetic operation is not valid, but with the solution we can make sure that the operands are good when the SUBTRACT or ADD instruction is done. 

Environment

Z/os,  IPC/IDEAL : migration from r14 to r15 since 3 weeks. DataCom r15 OP SYS= Z/OS 2.02 CICS LEVEL=TS 5.2

Resolution

Test fix ST07679 is resolving the same basic problem that RO99884 resolved.
