Issue/Introduction

Error message ICSCINIT12E - THE SCF OPTION BLOCK LIBRARY CANNOT BE INITIALIZED -- > RC8 when signing onto CA Ideal.

DFHAC2206  Transaction IPCV has failed with abend INIC. 

Cause

This error message indicates that we are unable to access the VLS library ADRPNL which stores the IDEAL option block.

This library is created during the CA IPC installation, and CA Ideal panels are added to it during the CA Ideal installation.

A CICS trace showed that CICS file ADRPNL could not be found.

Environment

IPC / IDEAL  all versions

MRO CICS

Resolution

  • This can be caused by using an incorrect REMOTESYSTEM (or REMODEID) in the CICS definitions. 

  • Also, make sure the FCT entries exist.  To verify that FCT entries exist for all the CA IPC VLS files, issue the following command from native CICS:

CEMT I FI(ADR*)

Sample output from the above command follows:

I FI(ADR*)
STATUS: RESULTS - OVERTYPE TO MODIFY
Fil(ADRINT ) Bda Ope Ena Rea Exc Sha
Dsn( IDLT.IPCV151.ADRTRC )
Fil(ADRLIB ) Bda Ope Ena Rea Upd Add Bro Exc Sha

Dsn( IDLT.IPCV151.ADROUT )

Dsn( IDLT.V151.DIDBVLS.ADRPNL )

If the FCT entries exist, run a VLSUTIL library listing to verify the block size and namelen. This will be displayed at the end of the report.
