Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • In order to facilitate migration to z/OS 2.1 from the
    currently supported releases, z/OS 1.12 and z/OS 1.13 are
    enhanced as follows:
    
    For Parmlib members COMMNDxx, GTFPARM,  IEAABD00, IEACMD00,
                        IEADMP00, IEADMR00, IEAPAKxx, IEASYSxx,
                        LPALSTxx, VATLSTxx:
    
    Any line that has an asterisk in column 1 is considered a
    comment and is ignored.  If you have such a comment in one
    of those parmlib members, do not use that member on a release
    earlier than z/OS 1.12.
