The Operator Information Area (OIA)is used to display the status of a 3270 screen session. The OIA is the last (bottom) line displayed in the terminal window of the 3270 session. Except for the initial three positions (system connection indicators), status line indicators only appear when they apply.
The following tables describe the OIA and explain each indicator. In the table, position refers to the column(s) that a specific indicator occupies on the OIA, where the left-most column of the OIA is position 1. In addition, the "female" symbol used for certain system connection and input inhibited indicators cannot be displayed in this table. In its place is the "^" symbol.
OIA INDICATOR (POSITION)

System Connection (position 2): B Connection uses an SNA protocol. A Connection uses a non-SNA protocol.

Session is established, but is not connected to any host program (unknown). Session ID (positions 4 - 7): aaaa First four characters of your configured long name session ID. Input Inhibited messages (keyboard locked) (positions 9 - 17): X COMMnnn Communications error. See Communications Status (positions 19 - 26). X MACHnnn Computer check error.

If this message does not disappear, check to ensure proper settings of the host network address, local node ID, or local SAP. COMM505 The host terminated the connection used by your 3270 session. COMM510 The host has deactivated the communications link. Report the message to your system administrator. COMM518 A segment was out of sequence. Contact your system administrator. COMM695 A communications error occurred. COMM5nn The communications link is still being established; the keyboard is locked. Wait for the message to clear; also check Input Inhibited messages.

Press RESET, and try the operation again. Screen Session LU Address (positions 79 - 80): nn The LU address of the currently displayed 3270 screen session. ERROR 83: The LU selected is not valid for the logged on user. There is a configuration problem if this appears, because the emulator only presents the user with LUs they are allowed to use. Verify the user can use this LU. ERROR 85: The primary reason for this error is the specific LU requested is already in use. ERROR 87: There are several possibilities for this error: - All the LUs in the Pool requested are in use and will not be available until someone logs off. - One or more servers or connections are inactive, and need to be started before all the LUs in the Pool are available.
