Error description

  • Customer is specifying TIMEZONE E.09.00.00 in their CLOCKxx
    parmlib member and when IPL'ing their system they issue a SET
    DATE command for a date in the past. In the above conditions, if
    the CVTTZ contains a negative value, then code in CEEYGMTO could
    end up incorrectly subtracting an extra day. This may lead to
    the CEELOCT service returning an incorrect date (the time will
    be reported correctly )
