I am getting a series of GJJ950E XPCC error messages every time PCS submits a job. What is causing this?

Description:

XPCC is used to talk with Power; this message may mean that there is a problem with the communication between Power and PCS.

The message lists a function, such as WAIT, SENDR, RECEIVE, DISCONN, and TERMIN.

Some possible messages may include:

GJJ950E XPCC WAIT        ERROR RC=aa.bb R15=XXXX 
GJJ950E XPCC DISCONN     ERROR RC=aa.bb R15=XXXX 
GJJ950E XPCC TERMIN      ERROR RC=aa.bb R15=XXXX 
GJJ950E XPCC SENDR       ERROR RC=aa.bb R15=XXXX 
GJJ950E XPCC RECEIVE     ERROR RC=aa.bb R15=XXXX

The function and RC will help determine the cause of the error message.

Solution:

When the function is WAIT or SENDR, review the console log for messages from the Power partition.

If you have other vendor products that communicate with Power, check the console log for errors with those products.

Check the amount of GETVIS available to the Power partition.

The DISCONN, TERMIN, and WAIT messages will occur because Power was too busy or unable to respond to PCS.

The RECEIVE error is normally related to a command error in a JCLBCICS job. Check that the program is using a valid CICS command.

For additional information about the return codes see chapter 2, XPCC Return Codes, in the ASO/PCS Message Guide.
