APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
ADDTCPHTE and CHGTCPHTE convert all host names to upper case
characters whether the name is enclosed in apostrophes or not.
Mixed case host names are necessary only for some cross-platform
applications.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE76760' :
-------------------------------
A change has been made that will allow the use of mixed case
host names if it's required by an application. However, most
applications will work correctly with upper case host names.
Refer to the special instructions for this PTF if there is a
specific application requirement for mixed case host names.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE76760' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions

None.




Special Instructions

If mixed case host names are required and your system does not have
jobs using CCSID 5026 run the following command:

ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(QIBM_TOC_HOSTNAME_CASE_SENSITIVE) LEVEL(*SYS)

Adding this environment variable will not change the case of any
existing host table entries. Only entries added or changed after adding
the environment variable are affected.

*** Please note that using mixed case host names on a system with jobs
using CCSID 5026 can cause unpredictable errors. This is an
unsupported environment for IBM i. ***

Removing the QIBM_TOC_HOSTNAME_CASE_SENSITIVE environment variable will
cause host table entries being added or changed to be converted to all
upper case characters.  Host names already in the host table are not
changed.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
