DADS returning a DADEX001 RESP=0088, RESP2=0608 which translates to
Condition (RESP) LINKERR (88)
RESP2 608 Connect to IRP failed
Release : 4.0
Component : CA DADS Plus
Possible cause the DFHIRP program had been dynamically added to LPA causing DADS not to know about the new version of the program, hence, the error.
Changed DASD option from HPO=EXCI to HPO=NO on the DADB/pf12 screen.
Lowered scan interval from 300 to 20.
Then did a DADB/P and DADB/S to stop and restart the DADB transaction.
This can be done on all CICS regions affected, and no need to restart CICS.
