did it happen to google for CAFC0371

ask Your support about it
or look at the manual for the CAFC0371 explanation!
if Your organization is licensed for the program the manuals should be available

if You are a contractor make sure that your agreement with the customer
gives You the right to access the relevant manuals

If all you're trying to do is to load a program into memory, try -

Code:
PGM=AFCP2016,PARM='REGION-ID,CEMT,S PROG(PROGNAME) PHA'


Perhaps you're not authorized to issue a CECI transid? Has this worked in other other regions, under your Userid? If this is Production, then CECI usage is restricted to a few people only.

Follow Dick's suggestion and speak with your Tech Support folks....

Hopefully, some other process(es) execute PGM=AFCP2016 with no error.

How is the PARM for one of these defined?

CICS GUY,

LO stand for LOAD

All,

My requirement is to load a program which is not executed at all in online. My understanding for CEMT S PROGRAM(program name) will newc already existing component in memory. Could you please confirm whether it also loads the new components from PDS to CICS memory?

Doubting that the AFCP program can do what you are trying....
How about just the L for load?
Why are you trying to load a program into CICS?
How about "PGM=AFCP2016,PARM='cicsregion-name,(tranid for prog-name)"?

The example parm supplied used PHA (Phasein) instead of NEWC. PHA will bring in the new version as soon as a RESCOUNT of ZERO is found by CICS. Whereas, NEWC will issue an error if the RESCOUNT is non-ZERO.

Does the target region use PPT Autoinstall or is there a pre-defined RDO/PPT entry already defined?

Under PPT Autoinstall, the CEMT command will only work if the PPT entry has already been built. Otherwise, it will raise an error.

But PPT Autoinstall will build the entry upon first usage/access of the target program by an application program in the target region. Pre-defined RDO/PPT entries are self explanatory.

I'm still not grasping what you're trying to accomplish?

By chance, is this a residual version of a program which had been loaded by a previous XPEDITER session and the programmer went home? If this is the case, then you must RELEASE the current version(s) and LOAD HOLD the new version.

Just a SWAG....

Bill

I don't have particular tran id for each program, that is the reason i want to use it through batch.

Bill,

Could you please tell me whether CEMT S PRog(prog-name) PHA will load new programs from PDS to CICS memory

Please re-read my prevoious post, regarding PPT Autoinstall or RDO/PPT explicitly defined entries.

Do you need the program to be loaded permanantly into memory?

If this is the case, then you need to ask your Tech Support folks to define an explicit PPT entry to RDO for this program, specifying Resident = Yes. 99.9% (maybe 100%) of Autoinstall PPT templates don't specifying Resident = Yes.

When a program issues a LOAD PROGRAM API (and the PPT entry specifies Resident = Yes), it is not loading the program into memory, but merely establishing addressability.

If this is the case, then there's no reason to LOAD the program into memory as CICS will load it for you and it will not be paged out, with RESIDENT = YES.

Bill
