M204.1796  Process-to-process communications link has been closed

The process-to-process communications link (CRAM or VMCF) closed unexpectedly. Data transmission is no longer possible.

Response: This could be a result of the partner process region closing the CRAM or VMCF channel unexpectedly. Also, it is possibly due to the partner process program abending. For example:

  • The SOUL request issues an Open Process statement. This causes a partner process to be invoked.
  • The SOUL request issues a Send statement and waits.
  • The partner process abends prior to calling the IFRECV function. This causes the Model 204 external interface (CICS, CMS or TSO) to ABEND and, therefore, the CRAM or VMCF connection is closed.
  • The SOUL request regains control with the $Status and $StatusD functions returning the "serious error" and 1796 values, respectively.

System manager response: If this error occurs as a result of the Model 204 external interface (CICS, CMS or TSO) abending, save relevant information and contact Technical Support.
