Issue:  

When you start up CA Roscoe, you get the following messages:

  ROS152W: ETSO REXX INITIALIZATION FAILED - RETURN CODE: 020, REASON CODE: 021. 
  ROS068E: ROSCOE/ETSO: INITIALIZATION FAILED. ETSO NOT AVAILABLE. 

Environment:

CA Roscoe on z/OS

Cause:

The cause is typically not Roscoe. There is likely a problem with REXX itself.

Resolution/Workaround:  

CA recommends that you check your REXX libraries. This is most likely a problem in REXX.

If you copied the Roscoe LOADLIB by copying modules instead of copying the whole library, you may have gotten some modules out of sync.

Additional Information:

If you cannot find the cause, open a case with CA Technical Support and send your complete joblog, a list of all CA APARs on your system and the dump, if there was one.

This may, or may not. be accompanied by the IBM message:

  IDI0056E REXX environment initialization failed

 

which you may find in other applications.
