Summary -

In this topic, we described about the below sections -

When abnormal conditions occur, CICS sends a message to CSMT transient data destination that contains the transaction ID, the program name and the abend code. An abend code indicates the cause of an error. An abend code may have been originated by CICS or by a user program.

CICS transaction dump is provided at abnormal termination. All CICS transaction abend codes described with 4-character alphanumeric codes (abcode) of the form Axxy. The Axxy is described as -

  • A - is the IBM-assigned designation of a CICS transaction abend.
  • xx - is the 2-character code assigned by CICS to identify the module that detected an error.
  • y - is the 1-character alphanumeric code assigned by CICS.

List of Abend Codes with Solution -

Error Description System Action Solution
AAL2 Either an incorrect response (other than PURGED) was returned from the suspend of the allocated task, or an incorrect response was returned from the resum The transaction is abnormally terminated with a dump. Check the return code from the resume or the suspend to determine the cause of the error.
AAL3 The task has been purged before a GETMAIN request to the storage manager (SM) domain was able to complete successfully. The task that first detected the purged condition provides an exception trace. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. It was purged either by the master terminal operator or as a result of a deadlock timeout. Investigate the reason why the task was purged.
AALO An error has occurred on a call to the CICS/DB2 table manager DFHD2TM. The domain that detected the original error provides a trace entry and possibly a system dump. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Inform the system programmer. Examine the trace and the dump to identify the point of error.
ABM9 The text data overflow routines have been reentered while text overflow was in process. This condition occurs when the line requirements for the text header and/or trailer exceed the line capacity of the page for which data is being formatted. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Reduce the number of lines required for the header and/or trailer or increase the page size of the terminal.
ABM8 A BMS text request specified a value for the JUSTIFY option which is zero or too large for the page being built. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Correct the application program that specified too large or zero value for the JUSTIFY option.
ABM7 The trailer specified to be used while building pages of text data is longer than the page. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Correct the application program that issues the request with too long a trailer.
ABM3 A BMS input or output request has been issued from a task that is not terminal-oriented. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS dump. The task issuing a BMS input or output request must be attached to a terminal.
ABM1 A basic mapping support (BMS) service is requested by a task associated with a terminal that is not supported by BMS. The request is not a routing request. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Do not use terminals not supported by BMS for applications using BMS services.
ABM0 The map specified for a basic mapping support (BMS) request could not be located. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Check if the map has been defined. If it has, check that it has been specified correctly.
ABMB The user has specified a cursor position in the BMS output request. It is larger than the current screen size for the 3270 for which output is being built. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Correct the program that specified the incorrect cursor location.
ABMA The user has supplied a terminal I/O area (TIOA) with an invalid data length that was either equal to zero or greater than the storage accounting length minus 12. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Correct the program that supplied the erroneous data length.
ABMF The value specified for the length option of the basic mapping support (BMS) send map is greater than the length of the 'from' area. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Redefine the value for the length option.
ABMX "A text string passed to BMS contained a set attribute order that was invalid for one of the following reasons:The set attribute sequence was less than three characters.The attribute type was invalid." The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Correct the application program.
ABMU The application program supplied an address that is not within region boundaries. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Correct the application program that is supplying the erroneous address.
ABMO The map specified for a BMS output mapping request was not an output map. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Either define another output map or redefine the existing map.
ABMM An invalid map was specified. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Use the supplied dump to diagnose the problem.
ABMI The map specified for a BMS input mapping request was not an input map. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Either define another input map or redefine the existing map.
ABXV The client code page which has been requested by the client is not one which CICS can support. The transaction is abnormally terminated with a transaction dump. Ensure that the Client codepage is valid.
ABXC An error occurred when a SYNCPOINT request was issued by the bridge exit. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Check for other CICS messages and exception trace entries to investigate the cause of the SYNCPOINT error.
ABXD An error occurred when a SYNCPOINT ROLLBACK request was issued by the bridge exit. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Check for other CICS messages and exception trace entries to investigate the cause of the SYNCPOINT ROLLBACK error.
ABRR The user transaction's profile could not be found. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Check that the profile name in the user transaction definition is correct, and that this profile has been defined.
ABNC An attempt to access a temporary storage queue failed. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Ensure that temporary storage is correctly generated.
ABNE An error response was received from an invocation of a BMS TYPE=ROUTE or TYPE=STORE request. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Check that BMS was correctly generated.
ABNH An attempt to ship data to the remote system failed. The task is abnormally terminated with a CICS transaction dump. Inform the system administrator.
