NOTICE:

Application of this PTF may disable or render ineffective programs that
use system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to limit
interactive capacity to purchased levels.  This PTF may be a prerequisite
for future PTFs.  By applying this PTF you authorize and agree to the
foregoing.

This PTF is subject to the terms of the 'IBM License Agreement for Machine

APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When a procedure with parameters is optimized, the parameters
might not be correctly copied from the caller and can result in
the following errors:
- the parameter is not set and contains an unpredictable value
- the parameter is set, but it can overwrite or be overwritten
by other variables in the procedure

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA43483 :
-----------------------------
The optimizing translator has been changed to correctly copy
parameters.  Follow the special instructions to re-create the
affected programs.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA43483 :
--------------------------------
Re-create the program or service program using a low
optimization level:
CHGPGM OPTIMIZE(10)
CHGSRVPGM OPTIMIZE(10)


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


If you have not experienced this problem, nothing needs to be done.

If you have experienced this problem, you need to find the affected
objects.  These are *MODULE, *PGM, or *SRVPGM objects that contain
procedures whose parameters are not being passed correctly.

Then do the following to re-create the affected objects:

Use the DSPMOD, DSPPGM, or DSPSRVPGM command to see whether
observable information exists in the object.

If the object has all observable information, then use the
CHGMOD, CHGPGM, or CHGSRVPGM command with keyword FRCCRT(*YES) to
force object re-creation.

If creation data has been made unobservable, you can
re-create the objects using other methods. One way is to
restore the objects, either after setting the QFRCCVNRST
system value to 7 or by specifying the FRCOBJCVN(*YES *ALL)
parameter on the restore command (RST, RSTOBJ or RSTLIB).

Another way to re-create objects is to recompile the source code,
using your choice of optimization level.


Default Instructions

THIS IS A DELAYED PTF TO BE APPLIED AT IPL TIME.
