Error description

  • Incorrect selection where criteria is based on list of values
    applied to fields having UTF8_or_EBCDIC output format.
    
    In a C2POLICE environment, or when NEWLIST SYSLOG is used, the
    field PROGRAM incorrectly ignores a value list.
    
    SELECT PROGRAM=(IKJEFT01) finds no hits in a NEWLIST SYSLOG
    
    but in an environment where UTF-8 output is NOT active, the same
    command with the same SMF finds events.

    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of zSecure Software Suite          *
    *                 processing SMF reports with matching         *
    *                 criteria (SELECT/EXCLUDE) based on fields    *
    *                 with UTF8_or_EBCDIC output format and        *
    *                 UTF8 output option is specified.             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure perform incorrect record        *
    *                      selection in cases where matching       *
    *                      criteria is based on list of values     *
    *                      applied to fields having UTF8_or_EBCDIC *
    *                      output format.                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When a list selection specification (for example
    SELECT <field>=(<value>,<value>,...) is applied to a <field>
    having UTF8_or_EBCDIC output format and UTF8 output option is
    also specified ([file]option ENCODING=UTF-8), zSecure does not
    perform record selection properly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure has been modified so that record selection is performed
    properly in cases where where matching criteria is based on list
    of values applied to a fields having UTF8_or_EBCDIC output
    format and UTF8 output option is also specified.
