After upgrading the level of Common Services to r12 and attempting to start ENF with the Datacom/AD database, the following set of messages can occur for a number of events?

CAS9316E - CICSTERM "Describe" failed - rc(-124) r/s(X'F5F1F0F0F2')      CAS9340I - PLAN CAS9ENFS.TRAN$ENF DOES NOT EXIST CAS9336E - A problem occurred processing event "CICSINIT"CAS9329E - Recording is disabled for active event "CICSINIT"

The event name shown in the messages is dependent upon which DCM statements are defined in the ENFPARM member. As a result of these messages the ENF task terminates with a U203 abend...

CAS9203E - CA-ENF Initialization error - terminating   ENF:DB00239I - MUF TERMINATION, START SYSTEM ABEND   ENF:DB00204I - MULTI-USER ABENDED   ENF ENF - ABEND=S000 U0203 REASON=00000008


There are 2 steps that need to be verified, which are part of the installation of Common Services r12 and pertain to ENF. They are:

  1. Ensure that the ENFUTIL job was run successfully. This job will use the output of a CAS9DB LIST DB(*) DETAIL against the r11 ENF database, and will build the necessary control cards for the r12 ENF parameter file. Information relating to this utility can be found in the CA Common Services for z/OS Reference Guide.

  2. Ensure that the AW1ID001 job is run from the SAMPJCL file on the Common Services tape. This is documented in the CA Common Services for z/OS Installation Guide, in a section titled, To Customize CA Datacom/AD for CAIENF.

Note: If the install of CA Common Services r12 was done using CA MSM, please refer to informational solution RI20874 for details on downloading the SAMPJCL file.
