CA InterTest - CICS CA InterTest - Batch

Issue/Introduction

​The client just installed CA Intertest CICS r 11.When the client starts CA Intertest CICS r 11 under CAIRIM using the initialization card below they receive message 
PRODUCT(CA INTERTEST/SYMDUMP) VERSION(VHB0) INIT(CAVHINIT)

CAMR951E VALUE OUT OF RANGE (MUST BE 200-255). The message reason points to CA Intertest Batch.
CAS9140E - INIT ERROR: CAINTERTEST/SYMDUMP VER VHB0, INIT ROUTINE RC=0008 

CAMR951 SVC NUMBER WAS NOT SPECIFIED
Reason:An SVC number is required when the CAVHINIT initialization program executes on an LPAR that has CA InterTest Batch enabled.
Action:Specify a three-digit SVC number from 200 to 255 in your CAVHINIT parameters.
 

Cause


​The Intertest CICS r 11 installation PAX file allows up to four product to be installed from the installation pax file. Those products are Intertest CICS, Intertest batch, Symdump CICS and Symdump batch.
If the client chooses only to install one of the four products then they should set the CAVHCONF product intent parameter  PINT=to indicate that this is a Intertest CICS only install.  The product intent default value is dynamic. Dynamic checks for LMP keys for all four products. Since an LMP key was found for Intertest CICS and Intertest batch  PINT=DYNAMIC instructed CAS9 tried to start both Intertest CICS and  Intertest batch.  Since the CAIRIM initialization card was missing the SVC number which is required if you are starting Intertest batch the client received error message
CAMR951E VALUE OUT OF RANGE (MUST BE 200-255)

Environment

Z/OS

Resolution

​For an Intertest CICS  r 11 install where only the Intertest CICS FMID'S were applied during the base install you should change the PINT parameter to PINT=(INTCICS) and reassemble and link CAVHCONF. 

The JCL to see assemble and link the CAVHCONF global parameters are in PDS 

HLQ.CAI.CAVHJCL(CAVHCONF) 

PINT=
Specifies whether a product can be used on a specific LPAR. If permitted, then the normal LMP checks for that product are performed. If not permitted, a message appears stating that the product is unavailable on this LPAR. 
(This message appears in place of an LMP warning.) The default value is DYNAMIC. This value causes the product to determine which products have valid LMP keys on an LPAR. The product then sets the product intent values accordingly. 

Syntax:
