Introduction:

IBM informed the customer of the Apar information, PI78994. Customer asked about impacts of the apar to run CA Date Simulator.

Error description

BATCHREP to small output file brings down CMAS region after
system abend code 315. CICS is unable to recover from this
abend code and terminates with DFHSR0606 message.
I was running a batchrep report but the output to a DSN PDSE
was so large that it ran out of space.
This caused an AKEB abend that brought the entire CMAS region
down.
.
Error messages received were:
IEC032I E37-04,IGC0005E,CPSMCMAS,SYS00013,363B

IEC911I 315-00,CPSMCMAS,SYS00013,0000000C,1C0B52D4
+DFHSR0606 M04CLM01 Abend (code 315/AKEB) has been detected.
.
This APAR is raised to request that z/OS system abend code
315 is added to the CICS SRT and allow CICS to recover from
abend 315.

Local fix

.cics.ts.doc/eyua7/topics/eyua7a9.html
'If a partitioned data set is used as the output data set, you
must ensure that the data set has enough space to handle the
output. A full partitioned data set without sufficient
directory space may cause multiple abends resulting in the
termination of the CMAS. To avoid multiple abends during CICS
recovery, direct output to a sequential data set. If required,
you can then copy the sequential data set output to a
partitioned data set.

Problem summary

****************************************************************
* USERS AFFECTED: All CICS users. *
****************************************************************
* PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: CICS terminates following a 315 abend. *
****************************************************************
A user was running a CPSM batchrep report but failed to make
the output PDSE dataset large enough. It ran out of space
resulting in abend code 315 during the processing of an SVC 21
instruction. As CICS does not have system recovery code to
handle 315 abend codes, and one was not coded in the SRT
itself, the region terminated with an AKEB abend.
KEYWORDS: CMAS abend315 315x abendakeb system svc21

Problem conclusion

DFHSRT has been changed to handle 315 abend codes and prevent
the region from terminating if they occur.
The following doc change will be made to the CICS
Transaction Server for z/OS V5.1 Resource Definition Guide
(SC34-2868-00), chapter 40, page 507, for DFHSRT TYPE=
SYSTEM/USER:
The table under Note 1, listing the abend codes which CICS
intercepts and attempts recovery for, will be amended to
include codes 16E and 315.
.
The following doc change will be made to the CICS
Transaction Server for z/OS V5.2 Resource Definition Guide
(SC34-7290-00), chapter 40, page 519, for DFHSRT TYPE=
SYSTEM/USER:
The table under Note 1, listing the abend codes which CICS
intercepts and attempts recovery for, will be amended to

The following doc change will be made to the CICS

(SC34-7425-00), chapter 40, page 520, for DFHSRT TYPE=

The table under Note 1, listing the abend codes which CICS
intercepts and attempts recovery for, will be amended to
include codes 16E and 315.
