    ****************************************************************
    When the Extended Monitoring function is selected, the zSecure
    Alert started task (C2POLICE) exhibits the following issues:
     - it never reactivates Extended Monitoring after longer than
       retention interval downtime. At startup it would delete all
       expired EM snapshots, issuing MSGC2P0442W which begins with
       the text: "Baseline data set was deleted ...", and would
       never re-activate EM.
     - when setting the Extended Monitoring snapshot retention to
       2 hours and refresh to 60 minutes, the oldest snapshot cannot
       be deleted and an error message is written in the log.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Alert started task (C2POLICE) has been modified so that
    the Extending Monitoring function operates properly. Please note
    the documentation updates as provided by the APAR tracking
    comment data.
