Is it possible to get IPCS to include "shared storage" (e.g. storage acquired via EXEC CICS GETMAIN SHARED) into the formatted output from a CICS system dump? I can't find a CICSDATA KEYWORD that provides this? CICS is TS1.3 in this case.
XC GETMAIN SHARED storage is not associated with a transaction (or else it would not be shared!) so it does not come out in the transaction-part of a dump. You will have to use the SM options and look at the relevant storage SubPools. They will usually have names like "SMSHxxx."
