error:  COMMAREA input map specified by hb_camap_in was not found.

The program generated by HBR$CAMP that represents the layout of the COMMAREA that you are trying to process is either not found or disabled on the region that the COMMAREA request was attempted.  Review your input request to ensure that the HB_CAMAP_IN directive is pointing at the correct program, and make sure that the program is in a load library that is within the DFHRPL concatenation or library definitions for that region and is defined to the RDO program table (if necessary).

error:  COMMAREA output map specified by hb_camap_out was not found.

error:  Conversational tasks cannot be stopped via hb_delete_session. 
The application must be exited first, then hb_delete_session can be used.

You are attempting to terminate a HostBridge session when you have completed executing the application transactions that make up the logical session that you are trying to simulate.  However, conversational sessions need to be brought to a logical conclusion before the session deletion can work.  Modify your process to execute the necessary transactions to correctly terminate the session and then issue the HB_DELETE_SESSION directive.

error:  Current userid does not match the userid that created the token.

HostBridge has detected that the user that is requesting a transaction to be run within the scope of a given session is not the same as the one that initiated the session.  This may indicate potential security issues, or may be a scripting issue.  Review your script or command process to determine whether or not you are specifying different users wthin a single session.  If the problem persists, contact HostBridge Technical Support.
