We are constantly seeing SARSTC99 messages in CA View STC and on the console that show jobs receiving a variety of different non-zero return codes.
Do these SARSTC99 messages indicate some kind of problem with CA View? Or, are they more of an informational message regarding the applications being processed by CA View?
The SARSTC99 messages are informational messages issued by CA View letting you know that an EXCEPTION CONDITION occurred for a job who's output is being being processed by the SARSTC.
- In other words, the "application job" shown in the SARSTC99 message received a non-zero return code. And CA View is just letting you know via the SARSTC99 message.
When CA View encounters an exceptional condition and a routing code other than zero is specified (as the View initialization parameter ROUT defines), SARSTC99 operator messages are produced for each exceptional condition. You can delete these operator messages from the operator console by entering the following operator command:
Syntax: /F SARSTC,DOM
- The SARSTC99 messages are governed by the rules coded in the Exception Code Table (SARXCTAB) referenced on your SARSTC's "//SARXCTAB DD" statement.
- The SARINIT parameters related to issuing of the SARSTC99 message are as follows:
