    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Restarting zSecure Access Monitor       *
    *                      started task (C2PACMON) after abnormal  *
    *                      termination might cause RACF subsystem  *
    *                      failures.                               *

    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When the zSecure Access Monitor started task (C2PACMON)
    terminates unexpectedly (for example, due to a storage
    shortage), it might cause the subsequent RACF subsystem failures
    (MSGICH409I, ABEND0C4, etc.) that will require system IPL.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Access Monitor started task (C2PACMON) has been
    modified, so it performs a correct cleanup after unexpected
    failures.
