Issue/Introduction

When viewing a CICS CTS 5.2 dump with CA Symdump CICS v 10. When the client selected the EIB control block they received message CAIN4710 No structure information for request. The EIB control block was not formatted.

Cause

The CA Symdump CICS PROTSYM file contains the program source code and all the CICS control block CSECTS. In this case for CTS 5.2 the PROTSYM file was missing member PROTCI69 which contains the CICS 5.2 control blocks. 

Environment

Z/OS CTS 5.2

Resolution

Run JCL member HLQ.CAVHJCL(CABALSYM) member which contains the JCL to load the CTS 5.2 CICS control block member PROTCI69 into the PROTSYM file as outlined below. Once the job completes you can use the CA Symdump CICS source option to make sure the PROTSYM file contains member PROTCI69.

For CICS 4.2 you need PROTCI67, CICS 5.1 = PROTCI68, CICS 5.3 = PROTCI70
