Error message

W3SV1105 URL INCORRECTLY FORMATTED, /favicon.ico 

appears when attempting to start up Mainframe Team Center for Netmaster (MTC-NM).

Environment:
Netmaster Network Management for TCP/IP 12.1 Netmaster File Transfer Management 12.1
Cause:

NTC-NM was new functionality added to Netmaster with fixes RO87683 and two prereques.

There is extensive HOLDDATA involved in the initial setup, and it is easy to miss different pieces or parts.

This specific error is related to missing information in the NMINIT member in the TESTEXEC.

 

Resolution:

The section of the HOLDDDATA in fix RO87683 titled To configure NMI in NetMaster describes in detail what is needed to make the HFS code available to the MTC-NM.

This is a more concise explanation to correct the specific error that is occurring.

1. Verify the name of the HFS that you are using on this LPAR for the Netmaster region.
    If you copied it over from the SMP environment, be sure to use the correct name for your local environment.
    The HFS was created by updating and running job C2DSEDIT distributed in the CC2DSAMP library.  
    The default HFS name created is /cai/CASoftware 
    The resulting SMP/E target would then be '/cai/CASoftware/CC2DHFS/DL76/nmInterface'.
    Your name may be different or much longer, but the last 3 segments will match what is shown in the above line.

 

2. Verify what TESTEXEC member you are using during region initialization.
     - If you are not sure, issue CMD from the command line in Netmaster to access the Command Entry screen.
     - Issue SH PARMS
     
- you will see something like this:         PRI=NETMST,NMDID=NM01,XM=BEST,INIT=NMINIT,READY=NMREADY,SSID=NMSS,DSNQLCL=CAI.NETM,......

    Use this value in step 4.  The default value for INIT is NMINIT.  

 

3. Still in the Netmaster region, issue =/DATASET

4. On the command line issue LOC and on the Member Name field use the value from INIT (usually NMINIT)


5. On the resulting screen find the first data set where that member is located:

                         ,B/S=Browse E=Edit D=Delete M=MemList P=Print R=Ren
  VV.MM Created          Changed        ID     DatasetName
  01.07 17-FEB-2014  13-JUL-2015 00:41 USER03  CAI.NETM.TESTEXEC
        Found                                  CAI.NETM.NMC1.CC2DEXEC
        Not Found                              CAI.NETM.NMC1.CC11EXEC

 

6. Select that line with E to edit.


6. Using the HFS name from step 1, add the following line to the member.

    &CONTROL NOUCASE
    /cai/CASoftware/CC2DHFS/DL76/nmInterface    

    We advise adding this as the last uncommented line in the member to prevent causing problems due to the    
    &CONTROL statement.


7. Use PF3 (File) to save and exit the member.

 

8. Cycle your Netmaster region to validate the changes.

 

9. Go to /PARMS WEBCENTER to get the URL.
   

10. Plug it into your browser and verify that it works.

 

If you are still experiencing problems after following these steps, please contact support.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additional Information:

If you have a long HFS name that does not fit on one line (pos 72 is the maximum), you can define the name in two lines as shown:

 &control noucase
 &root1 = &str /root/part/ofAVeryLongPath
 &root2 = &str remaining/part/ofYourPath/nmInterface
 HFS SET ROOT=&root1/&root2

 

Please ensure that all fixes related to MTC-NM are applied.
