M204.0246  VTAM request failure for termid: X0​,​FDBK2​=​x'hexValue'​,​x'hexValue2'

The error can occur for the following reasons:

  • Issuing SETLOGON macro during initialization. The SETLOGON macro tells SNA Communications Server (also known as VTAM) that Model 204 is ready to accept logons. Failure occurs at this point, the Model 204 run is terminated.
  • The use of SETLOGON during a restart of the SNA Communications Server interface after a crash. If the error occurs at this point, the interface is not restarted and the Model 204 Online run does not terminate.
  • Issuing a CLSDST macro to disable a SNA Communications Server session with the terminal.
  • Issuing a SEND macro that SNA Communications Server could not handle.

The SNA Communications Server request and the terminal ID are displayed. The two error codes returned are the contents of register 0 and the RPLFDB2 field of the SNA Communications Server RPL. These codes are explained in the IBM SNA Communications Server Macro Language Reference manual or ACF/SNA Communications Server Programmer's Reference manual.

System manager response: Review the error codes in the manuals mentioned above, and discuss the problem with your SNA Communications Server systems programmer. If the problem persists, call Technical Support.

Operator response: Notify the system manager.
