Issue/Introduction

We're running Intertest v11 on z/OS and until recently, ran Intertest CICS with only the Intertest  CICS CSD entries. We recently applied Intertest PTF SO12093 which brought in a string of corequisite maintenance and now Symdump transaction SYMS is required to process an Intertest breakpoint. Is there any setting or process to turn off the Symdump transaction definition requirement? 


Environment

Z/OS 

CICS

Resolution

The development team made mistake when they developed the new feature. Fix SO14193 will remove the SYMS requirement.

APAR #: SO14193
Product: INTERT Release: 11.0

Title: AEI1 ABEND IN IN25CORE AFTER APPLYING PTF SO13167

****************** VERSION 0 EFFECTIVE: AUG 06 2020 4:38 *************


PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:


After applying PTF SO13167, InterTest users may experience AEI1 abends if SymDump for CICS is not installed.

SYMPTOMS:
When a breakpoint is set in a program or monitoring is turned on for a program that causes an abend, execution of the program causes an AEI1 abend in program IN25CORE.

IMPACT:
Users are not able to use InterTest to step through a program or to view information on abends in monitored programs.

CIRCUMVENTION:
Add a definition for transaction SYMS to the DFHCSD. The definition
can be found in the appropriate CSDSYMnn member in CAVHJCL.
