There are new APARs / PTFs since my last service news blog entry. As you may know, it could be that I miss one or the other APAR. Therefore I recommend to register for z/VSE components - or visit our service web pages to catch the latest service news.
New APARs / PTFs are available for the following components:
APAR DY47551 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54045) / DY47557 (z/VSE 5.2 PTF UD54052) : Action error on BLDINDEX. The error occurs in small z/VSE partitions. The error may happen, when BLDINDEX is issued with the INTERNALSORT option. Symptom: VSAM I/O return code 105.
APAR DY47565 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54058): Missing SEOF for RRDS with speed. Missing SEOF mark in the beginning of the CA following the last preformatted CA of SPEED RRDS cluster. Instead, that CA is partly preformatted leaving number of non-formatted CIs at the end.
APAR DY47520 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54040 / UD54041): PDELETE LST,CRDAYS>10 may delete output created recently. For the long running jobs the VSE/POWER commands which are using the creation date/time only can lead to incorrect spooling entry deletion or selection.
APAR DY47554 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54055): Job may be canceled with message 1Q5QI, if received by PNET and originated from RSCS, JES2 or JES3. When a job is created on z/VM or z/OS and sent to VSE/POWER via PNET, the control record structure is different and not handled correctly by RBF & OGM. Sysrouted to z/VSE 4.3 APAR DY47569, z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47564.
APAR DY47556 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54048): The TIME ZONE command does not change the zone definition for active dynamic partitions. The AR TIME ZONE command changes the ZONE Definitions in the system zone and for all static partitions, but not for active dynamic partitions. Only when a dynamic partition is (re-)started, its ZONE definition is changed.
Linux Fast Path APAR DY47558 (z/VSE 4.3 PTF UD54049): Hardwait during startup of Linux Fast Path. When a Linux Fast Path (LFP) instance is started using // EXEC IJBL
SDAID APAR DY47531 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54039): Message 4C01A An internal program check occurred in SDAID when analyzing PER event with space switch. SDAID may terminate abnormally, if the space-switching Program Call (PC) or Program Return (PR) instructions are traced and the address space is switched. Sysrouted to z/VSE 5.2 DY47553 (UD54056)
z/VSE Tape Libray support APAR DY47548 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54047): LBSERV IQUERY fails with RC=0008 REASON=0076 for large inventory, e.g. more than 466000 volumes. A calculated buffer size exceeds 16 MB causing the LBSERV request to be terminated with RC=8, Reason Code=0076. Sysrouted to z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47555.
z/VSE Tape Library support APAR DY47566 (z/VSE 5.1 PTF UD54059 / UD54060): LBSERV IQERY does not release allocated GETVIS from subpool $AOMGV in a timely manner and may fail with RC=0008, Reason Code=0076. When invoking the LBSERV IQUERY macro (e.g. via the JCC/JCL LIBSERV), the allocated system GETVIS in the subpool $AOMGV is not directly released after the completion of the request. Sysrouted to z/VSE 5.2 APAR DY47562 (UD54057).
