What does message "1-ICSCDISP09E - PMS RPA I/O Error - Press Clear to continue." mean?
Z/OS CA IPC 14.0 CA IDEAL 14.0
Explanation: The PMS RPA (read presentation area) failed because of a terminal error User Response: Press the Clear key to continue.
This error indicates that IPC has detected an inconsistent 3270 datastream. This is normally caused by a VTAM error or hardware error. Some customers have linked the error to a VTAM parameter called PACING. Others have attributed it to their session managers or emulators. Others due to programming errors like when an IDEAL program calls a COBOL subprogram and that subprogram does terminal I/O, which is prohibited. It's not a problem in IPC nor IDEAL.
