Reply with quote

Hi!

Is there somebody still here?

I have a, somewhat academic, question, it would be nice if someone could share his/her thoughts on this!

I'm tinkering around with a small quick and dirty system (z) - it starts okay, but I have hit a strange problem with TSO.

I cannot start any jobs from TSO, it complains with S806-04, that 'RACCHECK' (or RACHECK would be correctly) "module" is not to be found!

It is strange, because RACF functions just fine - all tasks (vtam, tcpip, telnet, tso etc.) start without problems, I can even submit a job (from proclib) from the console with START. No RACF errors, or any other error messages in syslog. Linklist seem to be fine, as does the APF etc.


The TSO (and ISPF) documentation on the beginnings seem to be a little bit... vague... I didn't had the time to go from A to Z, but so far it feels I'm running around in circles.

I know that most shops use TSO/ISPF setup from prehistoric times icon_smile.gif or in another way, I never saw someone having a fresh new factory installed one.

How can I have a simple
- functioning TSO, where for example a SUBMIT command works icon_smile.gif
- and a logonable ISPF, with 3.4, editor, supersearch...

Any help appreciated!

Thanks and have a nice day!

Try to request any assistance from your System Support team.

The ABEND S806-04 has a very general meaning: the specified load module name cannot be found within any of the load libraries available at this moment from your environment (TSO? or whatever). It is hardly related to starting a "vsam task(?)", or a "job from console(?)", e.a.

It has very little to nothing to do with TSO/ISPF documentation. It is a specific problem of specific configuration of your particular zOS environment(s).

Seek for help from your local System Programmers team.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

The thing is, I am the support team... so I thought I ask the fellow mainframers.

Maybe I should have introduced myself, but I didn't think there would be any menaningful life around here. Maybe I'm mistaken?

So I'm a sysprog, with many many years of experience with... well everything zOS, except the db/transaction products.

And of course it has to do with the documentation... everything starts and ends with the documentation ;)

When you say 'start' do you mean 'submit'?
Neither RACHECK nor RACCHECK are known programs in z/OS 2.4 so any reference to those in a vanilla z/OS would result in a S806-04.
If you mean 'submit' are you 100% sure that you are not invoking a script instead of the native TSO command?
Also I am confused, how can you get a z/OS without a predefined ISPF setup.
You could create an ISPF startup script using the TSO editor. It is a pain, but doable.

Well, exactly, they are not programs or modules, but macros - known as according to some info in the books, svc130...

but there is no IGC00130 to find...

We are not talking about ISPF, but vanilla TSO - I'm executing the commando from the TSO (not ISPF):

SUBMIT my.joblib(job)

gets s806-04 ...raccheck...

can this be a TSO exit active?

Or RACF problem, but the message does point directly to a missing module!

Very strange.

Code:
CSV003I REQUESTED MODULE RACCHECK NOT FOUND                   
CSV028I ABEND806-04  JOBNAME=user01    STEPNAME=ISPFPROC       
IKJ56294I SUBMIT ENDED DUE TO ERROR, SYSTEM ABEND CODE 806     
IEA995I SYMPTOM DUMP OUTPUT                                   
SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=806  REASON CODE=00000004               
 TIME=12.52.52  SEQ=00016  CPU=0000  ASID=0031                 
 PSW AT TIME OF ERROR  070C1000   811A392A  ILC 2  INTC 0D     
   NO ACTIVE MODULE FOUND                                     
   NAME=UNKNOWN                                               
   DATA AT PSW  011A3924 - 8400181E  0A0D18FB  180C181D

Coded for you - do it yourself next time

Some information, that could be helpful.

Ah not APF.

It was IKJEFF10, the submit exit

OF COURSE it is from ancient times... I have replaced it with the x68 bytes original (?), and ta-daa, submit works...

Glad to know that it works - but you started saying it was a vanilla as in not modified system? So it was a copy after all?

I wasn't very specific, but yes, it is a rip of a running system, that was meant by 'dirty' ;)
