From the messages and codes manual:
Quote:
APCT

Explanation: One of the following has occurred:

1.

2. The program name in the EXEC CICS HANDLE ABEND program is not usable at the time an abend occurs because:

*
* The program is not on the relocatable program library (RPL).
* The program is disabled.
* The program cannot be loaded.

3. An attempt to load a mapset or partitionset failed because although the program is defined to CICS

*
* It is not available on the RPL, or
* It is disabled, or
* It cannot be autoinstalled.

4. An attempt to link to, load, or release an internal CICS program failed because:

*
* The program is not on the RPL.
* The program is disabled.
* The program cannot be loaded.

Problem Determination: The trace preceding the abend indicates the program, mapset, or partitionset that could not be loaded, linked to, or released. The name is also in TCAPCEPI.

System Action: The transaction requiring the program is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump.

User Response: In cases 1 and 2, define the program, mapset partitionset to CICS using CEDA and ensure it is enabled.

In case 3, the definition of a CICS-provided module is incorrect. Check for associated messages issued during CICS start up.
Could someone be disabling the program and then enabling it? That would precisely explain the problem you're having.

I recall that prior to CICS/TS, if someone issued a NEWCOPY of an executing program (RESCOUNT was non-zero), the program would become DISABLED.

AFAIK in CICS/TS, this doesn't happen anymore.

What version/release of CICS are you running?

Bill

rakesha.hg

have you tried talking to your CICS systems programmer?

is it a program or a map that you are getting the APCT abend ?

you say after the APCT , you can try 2 minutes later and it works,

does it continue working ?

before and after APCT abend, perform a CEMT INQUIRE to
ensure program or map is there and enabled.

try running through a debugger.

its tough to help you out with such limited information.

MORE DETAILS PLEASE !!

this problem was due to our production people were enabling & disabling the maps ...... due to some maintainnace issue!

i inquired the maps using CEMT INQUIRE(*) after the abends & found out the above reason.
