Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of the IBM Automatic Binary        *
    *                 Optimizer (ABO) for z/OS, v1.3 that run ABO  *
    *                 on an IBM z14 ZR1 (model 3907).              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Immediately after the SMP/E install of  *
    *                      ABO, the Installation Verification      *
    *                      Program (IVP) checks that ABO is        *
    *                      installed correctly and is functional.  *
    *                      One of the checks is to ensure that     *
    *                      both the machine where ABO is           *
    *                      installed                               *
    *                      and the machine where the optimized     *
    *                      binaries will be executed, are          *
    *                      supported by ABO. If the IVP program    *
    *                      is run on a z14 ZR1 (model 3907), the   *
    *                      IVP program incorrectly asserts that    *
    *                      the machine is not supported. The       *
    *                      JESLOG  may contain a message similar   *
    *                      to the following " IBM z server: 3907   *
    *                      is not a supported hardware level to    *
    *                      run ABO optimized modules "             *
    *                      The IVP program will also exits with a  *
    *                      return code of 8. This APAR fixes the   *
    *                      issue such that the IVP program now     *
    *                      correctly identifies that the z14 ZR1   *
    *                      (model 3907) is supported. If no other  *
    *                      incompatibilities are found, it also    *
    *                      exits with a return code of 0.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply provided service                       *
    ****************************************************************
    The IVP program was modified to correctly identify the z14
    machine (model 3907) as supported.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IVP program no longer asserts that the the z14 machine
    (model 3907) is not supported.
