Translation Specification Exception with Hyperion 4.3.9; Hercules 3.13 ok

Hi,

Wondering if anyone else has run into this...
While IPLing ZVSE V4, right after Power begins initializing, a "SYSTEM HAS ENTERED A HARD WAIT <====TRANSLATION SPECIFICATION EXCEPTION" (see attached) occurs with Hyperion v4.3.9999.0-SDL. This happens with a first level VSE or as a guest under VM.   It works fine on Hercules v3.13. Perhaps it is something simple I've overlooked.
 
 Thanks!

OR... perhaps you're using a version of Hyperion 4.3 that doesn't have the PIC 12 fix? (committed on 6/16/2020):

Refer to GitHub Issue #275(*) for details.

Please provide a COMPLETE Hercules log showing the *exact* version of Hercules you are using (v4.3.9999 is not an exact version; you need to build from a git clone of the repository, not from the .zip source file) as well as a complete copy of your Hercules configuration file.

It would also help to know the exact version of z/VSE you're using (and where you got it from!) as well as what the exact version of VM you're using too (and where you got it from).

Thanks.

Yes, the problem was reported against z/OS 2.4, but the bug is not specific to any particular operating system. It was a bug in our Address Translation logic which would affect any operating system using DAT, including z/VSE.
