After some weeks of vacation and a really good summer I returned and will continue to post news or any information related to z/VSE.
Let's start with the latest service news. There are a few new APARs that may be of interest.
DEVICE-SPECIFIC MIH VALUE (EXAMPLE: SIR MIH,181=10M) OVERRULES GENERAL MIH VALUE ONLY ONCE.
Error description: When a device-specific MIH interval has been defined (for example SIR MIH,181=10M) and an interrupt becomes missing for this device, the operator msg
INFOANA DUMP ANALYSIS SHOWS INCORRECT PROGRAM CHECK ADDRESS FOR SEGMENT TRANSLATION EXCEPTION
Error description: When INFOANA is used to analyse e.g. hardwait caused by Segment translation exception, the Program Check Old PSW points to the failing instruction. INFOANA takes the ILC of the failing instruction and subtracts the length of the failing instruction from its address and shows the resulting address and the storage content as failing address and failing instruction. INFOANA should show the actual address and content.
Interactive User Interface (IUI)
EXIT WITH PF9 ON SIGNON SCREEN TO USE TRANIDONLY DROPPED ON Z/VSE 5.2 AND 6.1
Error description: APAR PM51052 was not retrofited into z/VSE 5.2. PF9 on signon screen (escape mixed) use mixed case, sould be TRANIDONLY as it is more convenient.
Language Environment (LE/VSE)
LE/VSE DSA LOOP CAUSED BY DLI D106 ABENDS IN CICS ENVIRONMENT

Error description: Experiencing an DL/1 type D106 abend (deadlock indication) may cause LE/VSE DSA loop and CICS becoming unresponsive in this situation. The event actually triggers CICS to call LE for processing however to-date LE/VSE behavior (in snyc with APAR PQ15103) ignores D106 abends so returning back to CICS.

Error description: COBOL/VSE programs making use of internal sort may abend with segment translation exception (interruption code 10).
