Local fix

  • add steplib to the batch job for MQ datasets SCSQLOAD and
    SCSQAUTH
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WSGRID Batch job fails with ABEND0C4 in *
    *                      IMQBIN if MQ SCSQAUTH and SCSQLOAD      *
    *                      datasets are not in STEPLIB or JOBLIB.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    There were two global variables defined with the same name but
    different types in two different modules used to build WSGRID.
    Under the current binder design, when there are two duplicate
    sections, the second section, including parts in it,  will be
    discarded by the binder.  This caused the length of the variable
    to be 0x4 instead of 0x14, resulting in the failure.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A code update has been made to the variable names used to preven
    the reported issue from occurring.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.6. For more information, see 'Recommended Updates for
