Symptoms: 

 

CICS abended with S202. The system dump shows the POST and S202 were under a CA TCB DFH@SERV,CAKSSERV. 

 

Environment:  

 

z/OS 2.1 running with CA Top Secret r15.0, CICS Transaction Server 4.1, and CA Intertest
 

Resolution

 

The following CA Intertest transactions need to be in the TRANID bypass list on the CA Top Secret facility associated with the CICS region where CA Intertest is running: IPLX, ISER, VTAT, LIST, and VIRC. 

  

Additional Information:  

 

Use the following command to check your bypass list:

 

TSS MODIFY FAC(cicsfac=BYPLIST)

 

where 'cicsfac' is the facility associated with the CICS region.

 

Use the following commands to add the transactions to your bypass list:

 

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=IPLX))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=ISER))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=VTAT))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=LIST))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=VIRC))

 

If you wish to remove any from your bypass list, you will use the following commands:

 

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPREM(TRANID=IPLX))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPREM(TRANID=ISER))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPREM(TRANID=VTAT))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPREM(TRANID=LIST))

TSS MODI FAC(cicsfac=BYPREM(TRANID=VIRC)) 

 

NOTE: The TSS MODIFY command is only valid until the next recycle of CA Top Secret. To make the changes permanent, add the corresponding FAC statements to the CA Top Secret parameter file. 

 

FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=IPLX))

FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=ISER))

FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=VTAT))

FAC(cicsfac=BYPADD(TRANID=LIST))
