Under CICS Transaction Server Version 1, Release 3, we have a number of programs that are executed via XCTL from another program. The called programs on initial execution execute a START command to themselves but not sure why. Entry is always initiates through a menu system.When original entry is through the terminal owning region (TOR), the START command results in a loss of the EIB information after execution of the START command. When original entry is through the application-owning region (AOR), the EIB information is maintained and is available after the START command. This is an old problem that dates back about seven years that has been neglected but I would really like to figure out what is going on. Any ideas?
