Symptom:

"IMS User Abend 0688" in the upper right corner of the CA File Master for IMS Browse or Edit panel (U0688).

 

Environment: 

z/OS

IMS

 

Resolution:

If you see an "IMS User abend 0688" error message in the upper right corner of the CA File Master for IMS Browse or Edit panel, notice the "IMS Environment" name (IMSABMP in this sample):

 

-------------- CA File Master Plus for IMS -- Edit * IMS User Abend 0688 *

 COMMAND ===>                                                                 

                                                                               

 IMS Database to Browse:                                                       

   IMS Environment  ===> IMSABMP                                                

...

 

and go to the 0.5 SETUP panel, select IMSABMP and check the "BMP Region":

 

---------- CA File Master Plus for IMS -- BMP Environment Parameters ----------

  COMMAND ===>                                                                  

                                                                               

 IMS Environment ===> IMSABMP                                                  

 BMP Region      ===> IMSA                                                     

...

 

Please check:

-          Is, IMSA in this sample, a valid IMS Region?

-          Is it up and available?

-          Is CA File Master for IMS running on the same LPAR?
