    *                 the SMF UNLOAD function and having installed *
    *                 PTF for APAR OA54486 (PTF UA95848 for        *
    *                 zSecure version 2.2.1 or PTF UA95847 for     *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure SMF UNLOAD function fails with  *
    *                      a MSGCKR0617 in cases where no ACF2     *
    *                      security database was specified as      *
    *                      input.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When no ACF2 security database is specified as input for the
    zSecure main program (CKRCARLA), the UNLOAD function for SMF
    source fails with a MSGCKR0617 which begins with the text
    "Missing ACF2 security database for system ...".
    

Problem conclusion

  • The zSecure main program (CKRCARLA) has been modified so that
    the SMF UNLOAD function does not fail in cases where no ACF2
    security database is specified as input.
