Messages Returned to the Remote Gateway

Most of the messages produced from Oracle Tuxedo Mainframe for TCP (CICS) (hereafter referenced as TMA TCP for CICS) are sent back to the remote TMA TCP gateway and written to the ULOG on that system.

Message
Description
BEA TMA TCP for CICS server process initiated.
The Handler process has been started.
Welcome to BEA TMA TCP for MVS/CICS.
The connect process has completed successfully.
Goodbye.
The disconnect process has completed successfully.
Service svcname not found.
The requested service was not found in the inbound service name file.
Client has already logged in.
A client process has attempted to establish a connection when a connection already existed. (The connection request protocol was resent.)
Client has not logged in.
A client process has made a request to the TMA TCP for CICS gateway but has not yet established a login connection. (The connection request protocol was never sent.)
BEA TMA TCP MVS/CICS server is active.
This message is returned to the remote Tuxedo gateway when a PING request is sent to the TMA TCP for CICS gateway from the tmadmin administration tool.
Invalid password.
The password specified in the TMA TCP gateway configuration file does not match the password specified when the CICS supplied listener was configured.
Invalid client account.
The account code specified in the TMA TCP gateway configuration file does not match the account code specified when the CICS supplied listener was configured.

This transaction is not defined in CICS.
A CICS transaction code was mapped to a service name in the TMA TCP gateway configuration file for a transaction code that is unknown to CICS.
