Hi,

We get this below message from NET address space.
It is due to communication failure between two nodes.

Code:
22.09.18 STC02050  IST663I INIT OTHER REQUEST FAILED, SENSE=087D0001  726             
   726             IST664I REAL  OLU=SOME.LPAR1      REAL  DLU=IBMIN.MVSPS1       
   726             IST889I SID = E345826E4A3                                     
   726             IST1705I SORDER = APPN FROM START OPTION                           
   726             IST1705I SSCPORD = PRIORITY FROM START OPTION                       
   726             IST894I ADJSSCPS TRIED  FAILURE SENSE   ADJSSCPS TRIED  FAILURE SENS
   726             IST895I    ISTAPNCP        08420001        ABCDDR30        087D0001
   726             IST895I    ABCDDR12        087D0001        ABCDDR51        08420000
   726             IST895I    ABCDDR20        08420000        ABCDDR21        08420000
   726             IST314I END                 

The problem is, these messages flood the SYSLOG and 95% of SYSLOG are only these messages.
Could you please let me know if it is possible to suppress/not write these messages to SYSLOG?

I looked at MPF and also created VTAM message flooding table, they seem to suppress messages only to the console and does not suppress being written to SYSLOG.

Thanks,
Vasanth.S

Maybe this can help you:

Or the automation people can help you out.

Hi Peter,

The link says about MPF list for suppressing messages, but I think it suppresses messages only from operator log or console and does not suppress messages written to SYSLOG.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,
Vasanth.S

Well, the story is about MPF processing AND Netview processing. So consult the people involved with that.

Thanks Peter, but we don't have Netview at our shop. We have BMC Auto operator for automation and as far as I know it does not have the capability to suppress messages from SYSLOG

Hello Vasanthz,

I believe you have done enough research to see if there is a way to suppress messages, and apparently there is no way to do that. The best way to resolve this issue is to contact the vendor of NET address space, and see if there is a way to deactivate/activate those messages whenever needed. I have also seen Mainframe shops hooking SVC 35 (WTO SVC) to make these kind of customization, and of course that can't be done overnight, and takes lot of time.

Hi Apoorva, I have no idea about SVC 35, let me see what it can do. Thank you for the inputs.
