APAR Error Description / Circumvention
Return code 8 and reason code 95 is returned from the CSNDDSG
API when using a key label and the job is logged on to a 4765
CORRECTION FOR APAR SE51558 :
Requests to the card are protected by a MAC. If key labels are
used, the key label in the request is replaced by the actual key
token. This invalidates the MAC. The MAC will now be
calculated after the key labels are replaced.
CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE51558 :
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI45912 :
If there is at least one 4765 Cryptographic Coprocessor installed, load
and apply PTF SI43664.
Run the following command to determine if any jobs are currently using
any cryptographic coprocessor (4758, 4764, or 4765):
WRKCFGSTS *DEV *CRP
If there are any jobs currently using a cryptographic coprocessor, end
them and then start them again after applying this PTF (SI45912).
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI40203 :
If you do not currently have a 4764 Cryptographic Coprocessor installed
or do not have any AES keystore files created, nothing further needs to
This PTF introduces a format change to AES keystore files used with the
4764 cryptographic coprocessor. Existing AES keystore files will be
unusable until they are converted. Operations using the old format
keystore files will fail with either return/reason codes 12/197 or
return/reason codes 8/6009. A migration utility program is
provided to convert your existing AES keystore files to the new format.
Before using the the migration utility program, it is recommended that
you save a backup copy of each AES keystore file.
To convert AES keystore files, use the following command:
CALL QCCA/QC6UPDAES PARM('FILENAME' 'LIBNAME')
where FILENAME is the name of an AES keystore and LIBNAME is the
name of the library in which the file is stored.
Run this command for each AES keystore file on the system.
If this PTF is removed, delete the converted AES files and restore the
backed up copies.
DES and PKA keystores are unaffected by this PTF.
THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
