Datacom Datacom/DB Datacom/AD COMMON PRODUCT SERVICES COMPONENT

Issue/Introduction

The Datacom MUF was started before Common Services completed after an IPL, causing us to get the following error message:

DB01601E CA90S MISSING OR INVALID RELEASE

I was under the impression that CAS9 was not required for the MUF startup if the module DBPCCPR could be pulled from an authorized CABDLOAD in the event it was not loaded by CAIRIM. 

Environment

Release : 15.0
Release : 15.1

Component : Datacom/DB
Component : Datacom/AD

Cause

Key Common Components and Services (Common services) modules were not ready at the time the MUF needed them during startup.

Resolution

Datacom needs Common Components and Services to be in place before startup. This error could be related to DBPCCPR, but there are a number of other pieces that could be involved, too.

First, as noted in the Prepare for Installation section of the documentation, these components are used in Datacom and more information about these can be seen in the Common Components and Services documentation:

  • CAHC (Health Checker): This component provides checks and advice for best performance of the product. CAMASTER is part of this component.
  • CAICCI: This component allows your CA products to work together across platforms, making your software more powerful.
  • CAIENF, LMP, and CAIRIM: These components assist you in getting your CA products running and keeping them running. CAIRIM is required for CA LMP support. Mainframe products require CA LMP.
  • CAISSF: This component enables your CA products to offer standardized security interfaces.


If the CAIRIM process has not loaded DBPCCPR into memory by the time the MUF starts, the MUF will load this module into its memory. However, because it is in MUF memory and not common memory, a number of MUF functions will not work. For example, XCF processing needs DBPCCPR in common memory, and will not work if DBPCCPR was not loaded during CAS9. In addition, some security features and some DBUTLTY functions will not work.

As a result, you should ensure that Common Services processing is complete before starting your Datacom MUF (including the CAMASTER STC). There are many methods to address this, and each customer needs to determine the best approach for their business. Below are a few examples

  • If you are using an automated operations tool, you should be able to set this parent/child relationship to prevent the MUF from starting too soon
  • Automated operation can also be used to check on message $HASP395 CA90  ENDED. Once the message is flagged, this could drive routines to start other dependent tasks, like Datacom
  • Another option, if you will always start your MUF when CAS9 runs, is to have the CAS9 job start the MUF once it is initialized.
