Error description

  • Using MVSDS to look at MY.GDG(0) correctly shows the content of
    MY.GDG.G0001V00. When MY.GDG.G0002V00 is created and MVSDS is
    used to look at MY.GDG(0), this should show MY.GDG.G0002V00,
    but MY.GDG.G0001V00 is used.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM HTTP Server users of the mod_mvsds      *
    *                  module serving GDG datasets running on      *
    *                  z/OS.                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: mod_mvsds does not serve the correct    *
    *                      version of a GDG dataset.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    IHS using mod_mvsds will continue to serve the same version of
    a GDG dataset even after newer versions are created.
    

Problem conclusion

  • mod_mvsds will utilize new capabilities in open.c to always
    open the correct version of a GDG dataset.
    
    This fix is targeted for IBM HTTP Server fix packs:
     - 8.5.5.10
