Description (partial)

LOCATE-FOUND-NOTIFY (12CC) rejected by VTAM with SNA SENSE DATA 1014003C.  May
result in an FFST probe dump on VTAM.   This is in response to a

Here is the customer's configuration:   
     vleb <-> vlea <-> ilesna11 <-> dependent LU
       en           nn       en
      adaimc    dlus     dlur             
 - net02.vleb is an EN
 - net02.vlea is a NN/DLUS
 - net02.ilesna11 is a Cisco SNASw router, DLUR for downstream PU type 2
cluster controllers servicing LU2 videos and LU1 printers
 - typically the first LU within a PU has a LOGAPPL=ADAIMC (it's a special LU
type 1 session that the customer calls a command handler that doesn't support
user sessions) 
 - ADAIMC is one of the customer's IMS applications
   At the time that the autologon was initiated the appl  adaimc had not yet
done OPEN ACB, so was in a CONCT state to vtam.
  When adaimc opened its ACB, vtam would send out a LOCATE FOUND NOTIFY  with a
"resource enabled" indicator set in the NOTIFY (12CC gds). 
  The problem is that when it is sent to ILESNA11, it's returned to  VLEA with
incorrect configuration info.  There are two vector 3C's and one vector 3D
(that's ok) but the first 3C indicates the NN is ILESNA11,   the second 3C
indicates EN is ILESNA11, and the 3D indicates the LU is  ILESNA11. Since
ILESNA11 is a CISCO box, we believe it should reject the 12CC with a sense code
(10105002?) instead of replying as it did.  Note that the LOCATE FOUND NOTIFY
did not have the owning CP respond bit turned  on. If the LOCATE FOUND NOTIFY
had been rejected, the session should have been set up as VTAM would do a
broadcast to do the notification.
 Further Problem Description:

 The LOCATE-FOUND-NOTIFY with the incorrect vector topology from the SNASw
caused a VTAM FFST probe dump, and stopped further processing on the session
reallocation.  Had the FFST probe not been issued by VTAM, the
LOCATE-FIND-NOTIFY would have reached the subarea side of VTAM, and the LOGAPPL
session would have been reallocated.
 Here is the LOCATE FOUND NOTIFY reply received from the Cisco box,
 showing the two x'3C' vectors and the x'3D' vector:
