Issue/Introduction

Problem:

 

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. 

 

Environment:

 

Z/OS

CICS

 

Cause:

 

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

 

Resolution:

 

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.
