Issue/Introduction

I am getting the following errors when invoking a rexx program from the command window: 

AXC0316W Invalid Session name VOX 
AXC0301E Input: MSGID(VOX62) SESSION(VOX) COLOR(TURQUOISE) 
AXC0316W Invalid Session name VOX 
AXC0301E Input: MSGID(VOX61) SESSION(VOX) COLOR(PURPLE) 
AXC0316W Invalid Session name VOX 
AXC0301E Input: MSGID(VOX5999) SESSION(VOX) COLOR(GRAY) 
AXC0316W Invalid Session name VOX 
AXC0301E Input: MSGID(VOX5122I) SESSION(VOX) COLOR(BRIGHT GREEN) 
AXC0316W Invalid Session name VOX 
AXC0301E Input: MSGID(AXC1105I) SESSION(VOX) COLOR(BRIGHT RED) 
AXC0316W Invalid Session name VOX

AXC0301E Input: MSGID(*) SESSION(VOX) COLOR(WHITE) 
AXC0316W Invalid Session name OPS 
AXC0301E Input: MSGID(*) SESSION(OPS) COLOR(YELLOW)

How do I resolve these error messages and get the rexx program to run?

Cause

The error messages above are telling you that the VOX and OPS internal sessions cannot be found, so evidently your Notification Messages (VOX) and OPS/MVS Messages (OPS) function windows that correspond to these sessions are not enabled at runtime. 

Environment

Release: AP327020100-11.5-Automation Point-3270/5250 Interface Option
Component:

Resolution

1. Open Configuration Manager -> Expert Interface -> Automation -> Session Definition Sets

2. Scroll down to the Function Windows section. You will that the Notification Messages and OPS/MVS Messages function windows have an 'X' mark.

3. Select the Notification Messages function window and right-click. 

4. Select 'enable' from the context menu. You will then see an '*' mark next to this session.

5. Right click this same item again, and select "apply changes to runtime."

6. Apply steps 3-5 above to the OPS/MVS messages function window.

7. Now you can recall the command to invoke your REXX program and you should not see these error messages.
