Symptom: 

The client just installed CA Verify for CICS r 9.0. The CICS IVP verification step runs fine. But when the client tested the REXX feature which runs outside of CICS each statement in the REXX script fails with error message +++ RC(-3) +++.

    4 *-* " MONITOR SIGNALS                                              "

       +++ RC(-3) +++

Environment:

Z/OS

Cause:

When the product was first installed the testing was only going to be done under CICS. So the CICS installation steps where only completed during the installation process. None of the REXX Installation steps were done since they are optional.

Resolution:

The client revisited the install process and completed the optional REXX installation steps which are listed in Chapter 6 of the CA Verify for CICS Installation guide.

Topic

Customize REXX Environment (Optional)
