Issue/Introduction

I was testing basic printing and encountered a S0C6 abend in the main Spool task after entering a command.

We want our ESFPARM LOADEXIT parameters set to call the ESFSECU4 and ESFSECU5 security exits and the ESFU009 TCP/IP Print exit, and have them configured as follows:

LOADEXIT  UEX000=ESFSECU4,                  
          UEX003=ESFSECU5,                                        
          UEX009=ESFU009

Cause

The  ESFPARM LOADEXIT statements are not configured correctly when coded as follows:

LOADEXIT  UEX000=ESFSECU4,                  
          UEX003=ESFSECU5,                                        
          UEX009=ESFU009

The S0C6 is occurring when you issue a COMMAND because instead of calling the ESFU003 Command Processing user exit routine, you are calling the ESFSECU5 security exit.

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : Spool

Resolution

- Each LOADEXIT UEXnnn keyword statement can only reference it's corresponding ESFxxxx routine.

The UEX003 statement can ONLY be configured to call the ESFU003 Command Processing user exit routine. If you don't want to call ESFU003, then leave the UEX003 statement commented out. Additionally, the UEX000 statement can ONLY be configured to call the ESFU000 Initialization user exit routine so if you don't want to call ESFU000 leave the UEX000 statement commented out.

- The ESFSECU4 and ESFSECU5 security exits must be called by the UEXSEC4 and UEXSEC5 LOADEXIT keywords respectively.

  Example:

 LOADEXIT UEXSEC4=ESFSECU4,      
          UEXSEC5=ESFSECU5,                                            
          UEX009=ESFU009

- The S0C6 abend was resolved after making the above LOADEXIT adjustments.

 

Additional Information

ESFPARM - Available LOADEXIT summary:

LOADEXIT UEX000=esfu000,  ESFU000 - Initialization user exit routine
         UEX003=esfu003,  ESFU003 - Command Processing user exit routine
         UEX006=esfu006,  ESFU006 - VTAM Print Line
         UEX007=esfu007,  ESFU007 - ESFTOJES user exit routine
         UEX008=esfu008,  ESFU008 - Automatic Printer Definition
         UEX009=esfu009,  ESFU009 - TCP/IP Print 
         UEX010=esfu010,  ESFU010 - TCP/IP Separator Page
         UEX011=esfu011,  ESFU011 - TCP/IP LPD/IPP
         UEX012=esfu012,  ESFU012 - 'C Transformers User Exit' 
         UEXPRIO=esfprio, ESFPRIO - Output Priority exit
         UEXMSG0=esfmsg0, ESFMSG0 - Message Processing exit
         UEXSEP=esfsepa0, SEPAEXIT - Separator page exit 
         UEXSEC4=esfsecu4, The ESFSECU4 security exits are called when a user requests a function in Spool - called from the security subtask.
                           ESFSEC4X issues checks against the external security system or the Spool internal SAF interface, and returns.
         UEXSEC5=esfsecu5  The ESFSECU5 security exits are called when a user requests a function in Spool - called from the Spool main task.
                           This exit can allow or disallow the request, or it can decide that ESFSEC4X must be called.
