When Debugging with CA InterTest for CICS r 9.1 my test session abends with an S0C4 abend offset X'FFFFFFFF'

InterTest - CICS InterTest - Batch InterTest VSE - CICS




After upgrading CA InterTest for CICS to release 9.1 from 8.5 some of my Enterprise COBOL 4.2 background programs abend with a S0C4.

The CICS region log messages are

DFHSR0622 NYMVDS01 An attempt to overwrite the ERDSA has caused the abend which follows

DFHAP0001 NYMVDS01 An abend (code 0C4/AKEA) has occurred at offset X'FFFFFFFF' in module MVCPYMNT.


After reviewing the dump It appears that CA InterTest for CICS module IN67HOOK is trying to modify LE module IGZCPAC. 









CA InterTest for CICS  r 9.1  is failing due to the PPT entry for IGZCPAC is defined as Language LE370 rather than Assembler.




The client had a second RDO group that was overriding the default IGZCPAC(language assembler) PPT with a language of LE370. The client updated his RDO setup so IGZCPAC would have a language of assembler and recycled CICS. This resolved the problem.

This problem has been added to the CA InterTest release r 10 project as an outstanding item. Release 10 will be an incremental release and is currently in development.
