CA DADS Plus
The client is using DADS Plus CICS to manage their IMS DBD'S. When the client attempts to deallocate a DADS Plus class that contains files and IMS DBD'S the deallocate fails with message DADSP829 DBCTL COMMAND FAILURE. Also the IMS DBD'S fail to allocate at CICS startup time. The following message is in the DADSLOG
IMS DBCTL was not configured correctly in the CICS region.
DADS Plus CICS requires the CICS region to be configured for IMS CBCTL and initialized at CICS startup time. The SIT parameter DBCTLCON=YES is required. The CICS log at startup time should contain messages
DFHSI8440I CICST3A1 Initiating connection to DBCTL. DFHSI8441I CICST3A1 Connection to DBCTL IRD1 successfully completed.
To test the connection from CICS to the DBCTL address space the user needs to run the CICS transaction CDBM. DADS Plus CICS uses the CDBM interface to communicate with and pass commands to DBCTL.
If the CDBM transaction does not work then DADS Plus allocate and deallocate commands will not work.
Below is the CDBM transaction screen.
