Problem:

I getting error message ICSCINIT12E - THE SCF OPTION BLOCK LIBRARY CANNOT BE INITIALIZED -- > RC8 signing onto CA Ideal.  

Environment:

z/OS

Cause:

This error message indicates that we are unable to access the VLS library ADRPNL which stores the option block. This library is created during the CA IPC installation, and CA Ideal panels are added to it during the CA Ideal installation.

Resolution:

Make sure the FCT entries exist.  To verify that FCT entries exist for all the CA IPC VLS files, issue the following command from native CICS:

CEMT I FI(ADR*)

Sample output from the above command follows:

I FI(ADR*)

        Dsn( IDLT.IPCV151.ADRTRC                          )

        Dsn( IDLT.V151.DIDBVLS.ADRLIB                     )           
 Fil(ADROUT  ) Bda Ope Ena Rea Upd Add Bro     Exc Sha                
        Dsn( IDLT.IPCV151.ADROUT                          )           
 Fil(ADRPNL  ) Bda Ope Ena Rea Upd Add Bro     Exc Sha                
        Dsn( IDLT.V151.DIDBVLS.ADRPNL                     )           

 

If the FCT entries exist, run a VLSUTIL library listing to verify the blocksize and namelength.  This will be displayed at the end of the report.
