Error description

  • When capturing SMF TYPE 99 records with a subtype of greater
    than 128, zSecure will issue a CKR2408 message indicating that
    the subtype is undocumented. This behavior can be seen in any
    CARLa NEWLIST query that is of TYPE=SMFOPT.
    

Local fix

  • Suppress message 2408 using "SUPPRESS MSG=2408" to hide the
    messages
