Introduction:

Receiving messages in an IMS batch job PGM+DFSRRC00)

Question:

I am receiving the following messages in an IMS batch job PGM+DFSRRC00) and I don't know why.

ITK6403I PASSTHRU SUCCESSFULLY ESTABLISHED FOR DFSRRC00ITK6403I PASSTHRU SUCCESSFULLY ESTABLISHED FOR DFSXLGI0

The job does not invoke any IMS utilities. It does however have the CA loadlib for Database Organizer in the JCL. The program runs successfully. I don't like to see error messages for products I've installed.

Without the IMS-Tools Loadlib, I do not get these messages.

Environment: 

CA Database Management Solutions for IMS  

Answer: 

You will see the PASSTHRU messages anytime the CA version of a DFS module is executed. It is informational and passing though does not hurt anything. The only way to stop them is to remove the CA load library from the concatenation. The CA modules are there to intercept functions that we handle when operating in compatibility mode.
