CA IDMS Tech Tip by Edward Gorga, Senior Principal Support Engineer for January 29, 2016

 

Symptoms:

Users are getting someone else's session when they signon to IDMS from UCFCICS. What could be causing this?

 

 

Cause:

This situation can occur when a UCF session is aborted for some reason and UCFCICZ is not implemented in DFHZNEP to clean up the session's associated UCFCICS storage.

 

 

Resolution:

To prevent the problem from happening code parameter USERCHK=YES on the #UCFCICS macro. This will cause UCFCICS to check the CICS userid at the beginning of each task and prevent a connection to another user's backend UCF terminal session.
