Issue/Introduction

An IDMS CV using external security with RACF encounters this message:

 15.16.41 STC31896 *ICH409I 282-020 ABEND DURING RACHECK PROCESSING
 15.16.41 STC31896  +CCSR010E RHDCOS00 S282 at 0000C0EA LMOD IDMSDC CSECT RHDCOESA +0050EA IDMSTST N/A IDMSTST

and the IDMS CV abends.

Cause

The user application was issuing its own #SECHECK macro calls, and the RESNAME field was invalid. Its first character was a x'40'.

RACF interpreted this as a non-existent resource and issued the ICH409I S282-020 abend as documented at the IBM Knowledge Center.
The "System Action" is "The task ends". In this case, that is the IDMS CV.

Environment

Release : All supported releases.
Component : CA IDMS

Resolution

This is the documented behaviour of RACF.
When issuing a #SECHECK macro call, be sure the RESNAME parameter is correct.
