Issue/Introduction

Hi,

I want to use the same secondary node/LU name across all my CICS sessions from Solve.

For e.g. I have CICS1 session defined with A45P336 as its node name 

When I applied the same node name (A45P336) for another CICS session, I get the following error when I selected it


 A45SOLVP----------------------- MAI : Session ---------------------------------

 Session Command ===>                                           Function=End    

                                                                              

 SESSION BT HAS TERMINATED IN ERROR                                             

  N51501 THE FOLLOWING ERRORS WERE ENCOUNTERED ON SESSION BT:                   

  N80502 NODE NAME A45P336 ALREADY IN USE                                       

                                                                                

In Vtam, I have the following generic LU defined , with what I'm guessing its Solve's default logmode table:


A45NMBPA VBUILD TYPE=APPL                                                    

*                                                                            

A45P???  APPL  DLOGMOD=M2NSNA,                             X     

               EAS=1,                                                                     X     

               MODETAB=MAIFMODE,                                       X     

               MODSRCH=FIRST                                                 

*                                                                            


I want to use the same node name (A45P336) for the rest of my CICS sessions.

What do I have to change in Solve or the Vtam LU definition  ?

 

Thank you.

Resolution

Specific nodes are not shareable by default.

An MAIEX02 can mark a specific node as shareable. This requires assembler coding skills.

Note also that the same SLU cannot have multiple sessions with the one CICS application.
