    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When zSecure Collect is running on a z13 system with z/OS
    version V2R1 in an LPAR with more than 127 processors defined,
    it might issue a MSGCKF000I which begins with the text "Control
    block PCCA omitted because of invalid pointer."
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Collect has been modified so that it processes the
    Physical Configuration Communication Area Vector Table (PCCAVT)
    on z13 systems with z/OS V2R1 correctly and no MSGCKF000I is
    issued.
