Issue/Introduction

Using CICS 5.5 and Sysview 15.0 (or higher) multiple Abend S0C6 may occurs during CICS shutdown process.

During processing of a message, DFHDUDT is called for dump processing and begins taking 0C6 abends due to character
data x'4F's or "\" that have overlaid the DUA (Dump anchor block).

Eventually, a recursive abend is detected:

DFHDU0001 AN ABEND (CODE 0C6/AKEA) HAS OCCURRED AT OFFSET
  X'0BE6' IN MODULE DFHDUDT.

 

SYSVIEW Messages like these below appear on CICS Joblog

Note

When SYSVIEW (GSVT)  service is manually stopped before shutdown, CICS shuts down normally.

 

Cause

When a CICS dump data set, DFHDMPA or DFHDMPB, is closed, part of the DU domain anchor (DUA) storage is released.
If some other component or product obtains and uses the released storage, then the DU domain can fail or behave incorrectly.

Environment

Release : 15.0 or Higher 

Component :

Resolution

Apply PTF PH15770 - IBM CICS 5.5
