    environment and options RA.5.1, RA.5,6, or RA.5.8 are invoked, a
    syntax error similar to the following is thrown
    
    CKR0128 12 Expecting relational operator or "(" instead of
    blanks " s=CERTDATA C=D" at DS1 line 1
    CKR0987 12 Syntax error: text expected instead of blanks at "
    s=CERTDATA C=D" on DS1 line 1
    CKR0000 12 CKRCARLA terminated due to input errors

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Admin exploiting options    *
    *                 RA.5.1, RA.5.6, RA.5.8, or RA.5.9 in         *
    *                 interactive mode under an ISPF environment   *
    *                 with a defined variable named 'SC'.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Admin issues a MSGCKR0128       *
    *                      followed by a MSGCKR0987 while running  *
    *                      one of the following reports:           *
    *                       - RA.5.1 (Work with digital            *
    *                         certificates).                       *
    *                       - RA.5.6 (Work with key rings).        *
    *                       - RA.5.8 (Work with certificate name   *
    *                         filters).                            *
    *                       - RA.5.9 (Work with certificate        *
    *                         mapping criteria).                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When an ISPF environment has a defined variable named 'SC', the
    zSecure Admin issues a MSGCKR0128 which begins with the text
    "Expecting relational operator..." followed by a MSGCKR0987
    which begins with the text "Syntax error..." while running one
    of the following reports:
     - RA.5.1 (Work with digital
       certificates).
     - RA.5.6 (Work with key rings).
     - RA.5.8 (Work with certificate name
       filters).
     - RA.5.9 (Work with certificate
       mapping criteria).
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin has been modified so that the interactive reports
    RA.5.1, RA.5.6, RA.5.8, and RA.5.9 are properly evaluated in
    cases where an ISPF environment has a defined variable named
    'SC'.
