You receive a program check that has an offset X'FFFFFFFF' in a CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) region. For example, DFHAP0001 An abend (code 0C4/AKEA) has occurred at offset X'FFFFFFFF' in module DFHAMP. The X'FFFFFFFF' indicates that CICS was unable to establish the location of the program check. So, you would like to locate the PSW and registers in your CICS system dump.
