CA Spool Java FSS initialization failed - Transformer Interface is halted

Issue:

CA Spool selected a file that requires a transformation to go through the Java Transformers.
The CA Spool joblog normally shows a START command was issued to initialize the Java FSS task.

A few seconds after, messages are issued in the ESFLOG that indicates a problem occurred during the Java FSS initialization:

ESF4113 File   1740 - INIT failed, RC=12                                   
ESF4132 File   1740 ...... A2PC Transformation failed
ESF4117 Transformer Interface halted                                       

Looking at the Java FSS task output, the step terminated with return code 10 and the D2ELOG reports shows:
ESF4213 JNI CallStaticIntMethod failed with RC=10                    
ESF4209 Initialization failed. Correct above problems and restart FSS

The last record shown in the D2ETRACS (if tracing was active) is:

debug=/u/users/caspool/caspoold2e/xenos/config/debug-IO.config

File system.log is not allocated in the xenos/reports directory or when allocated is for a prior Java FSS task.

 

Cause:
Having the Java FSS task terminating with return code 10 during initialization is most often due to some bad syntax or something wrong happened while processing the initialization parameters.
Resolution:

With the particular case above it is likely that statement DEBUG in the cai.CBQ4PARM CAIQENVA member was commented out for debugging purpose:

DEBUG=/usr/lpp/caspoold2e/xenos/config/debug-IO.config

File debug-IO.config includes two statements that require customization to point to the actual xenos/report directory name:

outputFile=/usr/lpp/caspoold2e/xenos/reports/debug.out
outputDir=/usr/lpp/caspoold2e/xenos/reports/          

It can be done by either updating file debug-IO.config or by defining a symbolic link with the Unix command ln.
