Error description

  • The C2PECDTE REXX exec when given a data set prefix of 35
    characters or more, produces CARLa ALLOC statements that exceed
    80 characters, which when used, produces the CKR0981 message
    and the job fails
    The C2PECDTE REXX exec uses the same HLQ for the CKRPARM dataset
    as it does for the C2PACMON files. This is incorrect and another
    value needs to be used for the HLQ of the CKRPARM dataset
    In addition, the LRECL specified in the C2PECDTE REXX needs to
    be changed from 556 to 584 to match the allocation of the daily
    files.
    

Local fix

  • 1) Use data set name prefix of less than 35 characters.
    2) Alter the C2PECDTE exec to create a single statement
    spanning multiple 80 byte records.
    
    Manually update the value for the CKRPARM dataset
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Access Monitor exploiting   *
    *                 the C2PECDTE sample script and C2PJCONM      *
    *                 sample job to perform Access Monitor data    *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The C2PECDTE sample script generates    *
    *                      invalid CARLa statements in cases where *
    *                      long data set name prefix is specified. *
    *                      The C2PJCONM sample job contains an     *
    *                      incorrect replacement value             *
    *                      "your.prefix". Data sets allocated by   *
    *                      the C2PECDTE sample script have         *
    *                      different LRECL attribute for daily     *
    *                      versus monthly/yearly Access Monitor    *
    *                      data sets.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When a long data set name prefix is specified for the C2PECDTE
    sample script, the invalid CARLa statements are produced. Also,
    this sample scripts allocates daily and monthly/yearly Access
    Monitor consolidation data sets with a different LRECL
    attribute. The C2PJCONM sample job contains an incorrect
    replacement value "your.prefix".
    

Problem conclusion

  • The C2PECDTE sample script and C2PJCONM sample job have been
    modified to amend the reported issues.
