I'm working at an OS/390 V2 R10 shop with CICS TS 1.3. I have a TOR and an AOR CICS region where QMF queries are done. The problem I came across is an abend in the AOR, in a procedure for starting QMF, which occurs only if the transaction is initiated from some terminals; if the transaction is initiated from my terminal, everything is all right, so I suppose everything is OK with my session and connection definitions.
I've used CEDF to get more information about the abend and got the following screen:
I've found an explanation of the GDDM abend from the screen above:
TRANSACTION: NP60 PROGRAM: DSQCBST TASK: 0002031 APPLID: AP06CICS DISPLAY: 00 STATUS: ABOUT TO EXECUTE COMMAND EXEC CICS CONVERSE FROM ('ADM0309 U GDDM ABEND 1470 * AT OFFSET X'0878' IN 'ADMLCN1C 96101 V'...) FROMLENGTH (69) ERASE NOHANDLE OFFSET:X'0371DA' LINE:02470000 EIBFN=X'0406'
*1470 05BE ADMLCN1C TSI TERMEPR return from CICS
Can you help me and tell what TERMEPR means or what could be the cause of the abend?
As you know, I don't do remote diagnosis.
However, as you are getting some sort of TERMERR from CICS sent back into GDDM, you should turn on TC trace and see if anything catches your eye. I'd also have a look at the terminal definitions (concentrating on the extended attributes and capabilities) for your terminal and the failing one for a mismatch.
You might also have to look at the VTAM definitions -- but that's somewhat unlikely.
