Error description

  • During RACF RRSF initialization, if the VSAM files had not been
    closed correctly during a previous shutdown, msg IEC161I is
    issued with both RC56 RSN84 and RC62 RSN86 as VSAM cleans up the
    files.
    This gets the RRSF ESTAE involved within IRRSSQ10 (HANDLE_ABEND)
    to issue msg IRRU080I.   But because there is no SDWA, several
    fields are left uninit'd:
     IRRU080I (<) RACF RACF VSAM FILE OPEN AND CLOSE PROGRAM
     ENCOUNTERED AN ERROR.  ABEND CODE IS ???X'60560000'X'6F6FFFFF'.
    
    The fields are DASH_LENGTH and DUMP_REASON_CODE_LEN.
    This causes the RACF msg routine to use a default length of 4
    for each field, which is incorrect.
    The msg should end with:   ABEND CODE IS ???.

    IRRU080I or IRRU081I messages may  be incorrectly issued when no
    abend has  in fact  occurred.   In these  instances no  SDWA was

    displayed.  However the message ends garbled.
