    Chapter 6. IST Messages for VTAM Network Operators
       IST154I - Should contain the following code:
           Code 2 - (VSE) - Not enough storage was available in
           System GETVIS Area (SGA) for expansion.
       IST246I - This message can be seen at the POA if the
           SPO is not active. The internal function and return
           codes can be ignored.
       IST322I - MISSING PARAMETER is missing as a reason for this
           message. Example - ADDR keyword not coded on switched PU.
       IST786I - Add new reason:
           NOT AUTHORIZED (VSE only) - the command was entered
           from a user console, which is not authorized. VTAM
           commands must be issued from the VSE master console.
       IST985I - USER EXIT exitname action FAILED-CODE code
           For action INITIALIZATION, exitname will not be present.
           Code 0A indicates an error occurred during the
              loading of ISTIECDF.
           Code 0C indicates an error occurred during the
              loading of ISTIECRT.
           Code 0E indicates an error occurred during the
              loading of ISTIECVR.
    IST996I {JOB|SUB} taskname partitionid PROGCK CODE code
       In Programmer Response, add the following:
       A message of the following format - IST996I SUB
       taskname (partitionid) VTAM PROGCK CODE errorlocation -
       indicates that a program check has occurred in a VTAM
       subtask, and VTAM has canceled itself in response.  The
       solution is to correct the error that caused the
       program check in the VTAM subtask.
       IST1014I bp BUFFER POOL NOT BUILT - reason.
           Programmer response for each 'reason':
           BUFFER CANNOT SPAN PAGES - the buffer size of a fixed
            buffer pool exceeds the size of a page. If 'bp' is IO,
            refer to the section 'Specifying IOBUF Buffer Values'
            in chapter 4 of VTAM Resource Definition Reference.
           PAGES NOT FIXED IN STORAGE - VSE was not able to page
            fix the storage. Verify that the SETPFX LIMIT is set
            correctly in the VTAM start procedure.
           SGA NOT AVAILABLE - There was insufficient SGA for VSE
            to satisfy the storage allocation request. Verify that
            the System Getvis Area is large enough.
           SGALIMIT EXCEEDED - The value for VTAM start parameter
            SGALIMIT or SGA24 would have been exceeded by storage
            needed to define buffer pool 'bp'. Verify that SGALIMIT
            and SGA24 are not set too low.
           VTAM PRIVATE NOT AVAILABLE - The virtual storage
            allocation for the VTAM partition was insufficient
            to build buffer pool 'bp'.
            -See 'Setting Buffer Pool Allocations' in Chapter 11
             of VTAM Network Implementation Guide for information
             on allocating buffers.
            -See Chapter 4, 'Start Options' in VTAM Resource
             Definition Reference for more information on VTAM
             start options.
            -See 'Defining VTAM to VSE in Chapter 4 of VTAM Network
             Implementation Guide, and refer to the Estimating
             Storage for VTAM diskette for information on VTAM
             system storage requirements and defining them to VSE.
            -See VTAM Diagnosis for more information on storage
             related problems.
