M204.2509 token hexValue
Horizon uses this message to report two types of events:
- A receipt of request or a response unit for sessions that are in the process of termination and are therefore discarded.
- A failed attempt to BIND a session.
The general format of the message in the first case is:
M204.2509 rutype BEING DISCARDED FOR HS_ID = xxxxxxxx
M204.2509 DISCARDING rutype FOR HS_ID = xxxxxxxx
HS_ID is the hexadecimal Half Session identifier and rutype is one of the following:
- BIND RESPONSE
- CINIT (Control Initiate) REQUEST
- NOTIFY REQUEST
- TERMINATE REQUEST
- UNBIND RESPONSE
The general format of the message in the second case is:
M204.2509 rutype FAILED | REJECTED SENSE=
where rutype is one of the following:
- BIND RESPONSE
The sense codes are standard SNA codes, which are listed in the IBM manual SNA Formats, GA27-3136.
The following table is a sampling of sense codes:
Action to take (if any)
Session limit exceeded
Check the DEFINE PROCESSGROUP's INLIMIT parameter, or
DEFINE SESSIONGROUP MAXIMUM and WINNERS parameters for CNOS.
Mode inconsistency (wrong state)
Check that the partner is opening the process with a valid user ID and password; check the LOGON and GUESTUSER parameters on the local and partner DEFINE PROCESSGROUP commands.
Function already active
Parameter error in BIND image
Resources are not available
Check storage to see if it is a problem.
Session activation request received while earlier one pending
System manager response: The
DISCARDED messages usually point to some earlier session failure, and no further action is usually necessary.
When there is a
BIND failure, check the BIND parameters — the MODENAME parameter on the DEFINE PROCESSGROUP or DEFINE SESSIONGROUP — on both ends of the session. Refer also to the previous table of specific sense codes.
