XCOM Data Transport


A SEND JOB transfer was initiated from XCOM on z/OS to XCOM on AIX and received the following messages:

XCOMU0289E Command failed, RC=54     


Release : 11.6

Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for AIX

CA XCOM for z/OS 12.0


The actual RC=54 (or any other return code) is returned to XCOM ether from the actual script being executed or from the OS where the script executed. 


In this case message "XCOMU0289E Command failed, RC=54" is returned from XCOM on AIX to XCOM on z/OS.  Review the script or command that executed on the AIX system and determine where the RC=54 came from. 

If the RC=54 or any other value for the return code is not returned by the actual script, then review the errno.h file on that system. The errno.h file will contain a list of system return codes and that can assist with the debugging of the failure of the script or command since this is outside XCOM's scope.

When you initiate a SEND JOB from any platform to another remote system, XCOM depending on the remote system or what you are sending, will wait for the script/command to run and finish. If that script/command fails, then you will receive the "XCOMU0298E Command failed, RC=xx" message. The message and RC will vary from platform to platform. So, in other words, XCOM will return the message with the RC to indicate that a failure happened and the user will have to investigate that failure on the system where the job ran.
