CA TPX - Session Management TPX- PACKAGE CA Vman Session Management for z/OS TPX SESSION MANAGEMENT

Issue/Introduction

Job worked great but when I tried against a second TPX (on another LPAR), I got this message and am not sure if there just was no data to satisfy request or if I have a real error.

I see one message refers to VIEW and that function is not enabled so there is no VIEW DD statement.

TPBL0706 LSERV request failed. Request: CONNECT 
                  LSERV Subsystem Name: LSRV DDNAME: N/A 
                  Return Code = 00000044 ACBERFLG = N/A RPLFDBWD = N/A 

followed by message:

TPB601 UNABLE TO OPEN COMMUNICATION WITH LSERV FILE SERVER. REQUIRED FOR FILE VIEW

Cause

When TPX does not find a DD statement for any of the VSAM files (ADMIN1, ADMIN2, MAIL, NOTES, VIEW), it assumes that you are using CA LSERV to manage access to those files.

Environment

TPX 5.4

Resolution

If you are not using VIEW then you should have a //VIEW DD DUMMY in your TPX procedure. Otherwise you will get this message. You would also receive this message when starting TPX online.

DO NOT comment out the DD statement; use DD DUMMY instead.

This message does not influence the functionality of TPX.
