Error description

  • DFHME0006 is issued trying to process message DFHFC0955 from
    DFHFCRO. The problem is that fcro_dslen has not been initialised
    and thus the length passed to DFHMEME by DFHFCRO contains blanks
    for the length, thus causing the DFHME0006 'MVS getmain failure'
    message to be issued.

    ****************************************************************
    In the reported problem, CICS issued message DFHME0006
    attempting to GETMAIN an inordinate amount of storage required
    for an insert in message DFHFC0955. The insert length field for
    DFHFC0955 was uninitialised and the message domain happened to
    use residual data of x'40404040' hence the DFHME0006. Had the
    residual data contained zero (probably more commonplace), then
    DFHFC0955 would have been issued without the DFHME0006 but also,
    the insert whose purpose is to identify a VSAM dataset
    referenced in earlier messages, would have been missing.
    
    Had the residual data contained zero (probably more
    commonplace), then DFHFC0955 would have been issued without the
    identifying VSAM dataset name.  Likewise, residual data equating
    to a large number may cause a WTO buffer overflow and residual
    data equating to a negative value would result in no DFHFC0955
    being issued at all.

Problem conclusion

  • DFHFCRO has been modified by initialising fcro_dslen.
