Issue:
On the CTRANDEG screen our production CICS showing invalid TRAN id's..
Below are the TRAN Id's that are showing:
+OI0 * ;
IMI
/CSS
/EXI
/LOG
I checked another region, our QA region and the CTRANDEG screen is showing the correct tran id.
This is only happening in our production region.
I do not know when this started or what to look for.
Have you seen this before?
Resolution:
CTRANDEG will show any tranids that were executed.
A program or a CICS user can enter any tranid they want; if it isn't defined an error will occur, but CICS still treats that 'invalid' tranid as a transaction that executed.
e.g. You will see it on CTRANDEG, get a CTRANLOG record for it, etc.
