When the region is not available then the response will not be sent to the source causing a timeout for that particular transaction. We've setup a VSAM file with Fixed length to update/write these timed out records. But recently we've been seeing errors in CICS spool that the write operation to the file is failing with response codes : EIBRESP = 00000016, EIBRESP2 = 00000001.
EIBRESP = 16 means an INVREQ but not sure about RESP2 reason. I tried to debug the pgm but couldn't get the actual reason for these EIBRCODES.
Could you please let me know the response message or root cause for Resp2 as 01?
Appreciate your quick response and inputs on this one.
I did go through some IBM materials but couldn't find Resp2 value as 01 for Resp as 16. This was my last hope in cracking the issue. Please let me know if you could help to resolve or ignore otherwise.
How about you check the syntax in the program, FCT entry , Do file is defined correctly as per program and FCT entry? Did it ever worked successfully ? if so then what changed to make it fail ? EIBRESP2 would play small role now until you have answers to these questions. resp2 may be because of rollback.
