Summary:

This is a brief introduction to CA Datacom messaging…and some of the most important messages to look for.

Background:

Looking for the most important messages I need to be careful.

Environment:

Z/os or Z/vse, CA Datacom/DB or AD

Instructions:

CA Datacom will issue message(s) depending on the severity of the situation.

The first three characters of the message indicates what area the message is issued from:

  DB0xxxc CA Datacom/DB processing message (MUF)                           
  DB1xxxc DBUTLTY messages                                                 
  DB2xxxc SQL preprocessor messages                                        
  DB9xxxc CAIRIM messages                                                  
  DBHxxxc Health Checker messages 
 
The last character 'c' of the message number indicates the severity:
 
  A - Action                                          
  C - Critical                                        
  E - Error                                           
  I - Information                                     
  W - Warning
