Issue:

After applying some new ENF r14.1 PTFS, an attempt was made to stop and re-start ENF with a REINIT (eg. S ENF,,,REINT ) as documented in the implementation instructions. As a result the ENF task now fails to initialize. The following messages are witnessed:

17.37.05 STC48915 *CAS9225A - Verify CA-ENF shutdown request          

Cause:

The root cause has been identified as a coding error where the decision is made to dynamically generate CAS9DCM0 for ENF if not specified at startup time in the ENF parameter file. 

The contributing factors are:

  1. the omission of a DCM statement defining the base ENF DCM id CAS9DCM0.
  2. the passing of any parameter on the START statement.
Resolution:

The workaround is to define the following statement to the ENF parameter file (eg. ENFPARM)

DCM(CAS9DCM0)

 

The permanent solution is currently being tested/verified and will be published as RO93334 when ready.
