Error description

  • On the HMC there are three ways to specify the Load Address and
    Load Parameter for a z/OS LPAR:
    1) Load activation profile
    2) Image activation profile
    3) Load Window (opens when selecting Load against a CPC Image on
       the HMC
    
    BCPII does not provide query capability to get the current value
    of the Load Window settings.
    
    Load Window attributes (load address, load parm)

    z/OS BCPii should support image attributes to retrieve the
    loadaddr and loadparms last used when the Load command was
    issued for the image.
