Issue/Introduction

We  recently had CICS TS v5.4 upgrade and current release of intertest CICS V11.0, after upgrade Intertest Demo programs not longer stops at automatic breakpoints or unconditional breakpoints.
When issuing DEMC we receive DFHAC2206 09:53:45 DAA1CIC Transaction DEMC failed with abend ASRA. 

Environment

Z/OS 
CICS

Cause

CA Mainframe application tuner caused the problem.

Resolution

CA MAT is causing the problem.MAT does not honor the Intertest CICS global user exit return code. Please apply fix MATUNE fix SO10901

APAR #: SO10901
Product: MATUNE Release: 12.0 
Title: MAT DOES NOT HONOR RC IN CICS GLUE CODE

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
MAT CICS GLUE code (TCnnCPLT) DOES NOT honor the return code that is
inherited so if Intertest CICS has set a higher RC and MAT finished cleanly
the MAT code will override it and plug in its return code which causes
Intertest to behave incorrectly

SYMPTOMS:
Intertest CICS breakpoints fail

IMPACT:
Without circumvention Intertest breakpoints don't work.


It may take a while to get a fix applied. So a work around would be to start CA MAT (Mainframe application tuner first) and then Intertest CICS at CICS PLTPI time.

For example

NOTE: Intertest CICS has TWO PLTPI startup programs. IN25PLTX and IN25PLT

You may not be using IN25PLTX and that's okay. But if you are using IN25PLTX you would comment it out as outlined below.

Then after the DFHDELIM MAT is started first TC00CPLT followed by Intertest CICS
IN25PLT ......


You would have to COMMENT out the Intertest CICS  IN25PLTX program before the DFHDELIM and Start MAT first after the DFHDELIM then Intertest.
