Issue:

NetMaster was getting this abend very frequently:

N01101 NetMaster ABEND N-017-00 ID=NMSYSE JN=NMSYSE DT=2018340 TM=20223982

N01102 SRC=AB PRD=NetMaster INTLVL=070600 SP=1212 ABC=N-017-0

N01103 ALM=NM001 ALO=0001F950 ACS=NM000017 ACO=000002200

It was restarting automatically.

Environment:
OS: z/OS.
Resolution:
Notes from NetMaster L2 Support regarding the abend--towards a reso-
lution:

1. We are seeing the following error messages which means that these
userIDs
have not been defined to your security system:

NSX910 UNKNOWN USERID: NM04BSYS
NSX910 UNKNOWN USERID: NM06BSYS


Please enter the following commands from within NetMaster command
entry:


$nmuaini action=DEFINE NMSUP=NM04
$nmuaini action=DEFINE NMSUP=NM06

You should see something like this in the log:


N25G13 UAMS DEFINITION NM04BSYS ADDED

2. Lots of APPC errors because userids aren
't defined. Let us remove
APPC
checking from the product by doing this:

In your SXCTL member you will probably see the following statement:

SYSCHECK NO

Insert the following statement:

APPCCHECK NO

3. You have a massive amount of socket trace messages which are not
necessary.
Perhaps some past problem needed this--but it needs to be
removed now.
Somewhere during INIT somebody added the following
line:


+tcpip modify trace=summary

N3AT01 TCPIP MODIFY COMMAND PROCESSED

Look within your $NMPARMS or NMINIT or NMREADY member and find
that
command. Delete that command as it is not necessary. After NM has
been restarted all of these messages should now cease:

N3B101 IP TRACE: RECEIVE SOCKET=000835 RC=0 F

4. Someone added the following line for diagnostics--that is not required
either.
Delete this line from within $NMPARMS or NMINIT or NMREADY:

##at etc. (the complete diagnostics command was omitted)
