When installing Datacom/DB, via PAX or via CA Chorus Software Manager (CA CSM),the customer is asked to provide the name of the SDFHLOAD library that will be used to include some CICS modules when linking Datacom modules. If a customer has no CICS license, the SDFHLOAD library is not available and so the SMP/E APPLY will fail for the FMIDs that require these CICS modules. The most common error is:
GIM23901E ** LINK-EDIT PROCESSING FOR SYSMOD xxxxxx FAILED FOR MODULE mmmmmm IN LMOD DDBSC22 IN THE CABDLOAD LIBRARY. THE RETURN CODE (08) EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE VALUE.
due to a linkedit error like:
IEW2303E 1030 MEMBER xxxxxx OF THE DATA SET SPECIFIED BY SDFHLOAD COULD NOT BE FOUND.
where xxxxxx is usually DFHEAI or DFHEAI0
In order to successfully complete the installation, you have to create a “fake” SDFHLOAD library and link on it the “fake” CICS members that are required for successfully link-editing the Datacom modules.
The JCL to create the library and the modules can be found here: SDFHLOAD.txt
