Article ID: 191420
We are working on a Datacom test environment and cannot carry out any Datacom online transactions (DDOL, IPCV) The Datacom in this region is in v15.1 and its system resources in v15.0.
What we have done:
Verified with the CICS team that CICS is updated with the current Datacom libraries
Verified DDOL and IPCV transactions are enabled on the CICS regions
Formatted the ADRPNL file using its recent backup which restored the SCF#OPTION member.
Recycled Datacom and its CICS regions - Issue still unresolved.
Error: ICSCINIT11E - THE SCF OPTION BLOCK, SCF#OPTIONS, CANNOT BE FOUND - - -> RC=0008 DFHAC2206 17:18:53 CICASA01 Transaction DDOL failed with abend INIB. Updates to local recoverable resources backed out.
Release : 15.1
Component : CA DATACOM DATADICTIONARY
Anytime a VLS file is corrupted by a wrong NAMELEN or blocksize that does not match the CICS FCT entry record size, there will be a problem and/or unexpected results
Run CEMT INQ FILE (ADR*) and verify the full dataset name for ADRPNL and run a VLSUTIL LIBRARY on ADRPNL, Check for the existence of SCF#OPTIONS from the VLSUTIL LIBRARY report (note: this should be one of the last members on the report)
If SCF#OPTIONS exist, change ADRPNL to NAMELEN 24 and recycle CICS
