DFHAC2206 08:38:00 CICXXXX TRANSACTION XXXX FAILED WITH ABEND AZI6. UPDATES TO LOCAL RECOVERABLE RESOURCES BACKED OUT. DFHAC2261 SYSTEM XXXX SENT MESSAGE (SENSE CODE 0824089E). 'DFHAC2206 08:38:00 CICXXXX TRANSACTION XXXX FAILED
WITH ABEND ASRA. UPDATES TO LOCAL RECOVERABLE RESOURCES BACKED OUT.'.

Can anyone help me on this? Suggest me how to rectify this ABEND. CICS programs are just modified for change in field size then started testing. Not sure how to resolve it and request for suggesstions.

Thank you
Venu

Hello,

That is also why the ASRA (providing the programs worked before the size change(s)). You need to verify that the record layout in the code exactly matches the data being used. If the file is the "old" format and the program expects the "new" format (or the other way around), ASRA is quite common.

Ask your peers or cics support people if there is an online debugging tool available. If there is, they can show you how to use it.

If there is not, and you cannot find the discrepancy looking at the code and the data, you will need to use the dump to debug. Again, your cics support people or your peers can show you how this is done on your system.

veno,

ASRA abend is very much similar to SOC7. This is basically a data exception error and as suggested you need to debug to find whcih field is causing the same.

You can try debugging using an XPEDITOR.

I am sure the manufacturer of the product does not think so.

Please use whole words, not your own abbreviations.

A good reason "why not" use intertest is that many/most systems do not have intertest. It is site specific.
