Error description

  • The following enhancements and issues will be addressed in the
    HKCI310 PARMGEN PTF UAXXXXX for APAR OAXXXXX:
    A. 3Q13A Enhancements:
    " RFE: Provide PARMGEN Workflow UI improvements for:
    A. PARMGEN Configuration Framework Enhancements/Updates:
    1. Change the initial default value of the
    "RTE_VTAM_GBL_MAJOR_NODE" global VTAM major node profile
    parameter from a hardcoded "KCANDLE1" to the initial RTE VTAM
    node prefix + "NODE"  ("%RTE_VTAM_APPLID_PREFIX%NODE" default
    value).  ᄑBenefit:  This new %RTE_VTAM_APPLID_PREFIX%NODE
    default name follows the standard convention of all VTAM-related
    members set-up by PARMGEN.
    2. Change the initial default value of the
    "RTE_VTAM_APPLID_PREFIX" global VTAM APPLID prefix from "CTD" to
    "TIV".  ᄑBenefit:  This new "TIV" default name follows the
    standard convention of Tivoli-based brand names.
    3. Change the initial default value of the
    "RTE_PDS_KPDPROC_PREFIX" global Persistent Datastore maintenance
    procedure RTE prefix profile parameter from a hardcoded
    "KPDPROC" to the initial RTE started task prefix + "PD"
    ("%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD" default value).   ᄑBenefit:   This new
    "%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD"  default name follows the standard
    convention of all started task-related members set-up by
    PARMGEN.
    4. Modify the following jobs to better support JES3
    installations with special allocation set-up.  ᄑBenefit: Provide
    full JES3 support.
    o GBL_USER_JCL/WCONFIG(KCIJPCFG) - modify the PARMGEN Set up
    PARMGEN work environment for an RTE " job to better support JES3
    installations with special allocation set-up.
    o WCONFIG(KCIJPUP1) - modify the "Update interim libraries and
    create profiles" job to better support JES3 installations with
    special allocation set-up.
    o WKANSAMU(KCIJPCPR) - modify the "Backup RK* production user
    libs" job to better support JES3 installations with special
    allocation set-up.
    o WKANSAMU(KCIJPCPW) - modify the "Backup WK* work libraries"
    job to better support JES3 installations with special allocation
    set-up.
    5. Support a file-tailored UNIT="UNIT=%GBL_SYSDA_UNIT%"
    parameter in certain jobs that still generate a hardcoded
    UNIT=3390 or UNIT=SYSDA.  ᄑBenefit: Use the supported UNIT
    specified by customer for PARMGEN to generated in the jobs.
    6. Remove DISP=OLD requirement in the DELRUN step of the
    WKANSAMU(KCIJPLOD) RTE Load job.  ᄑBenefit: Allow the KCIJPLOD
    RTE Load job to run even if members are in use in the DELRUN
    step of the KCIJPLOD job so started tasks do not need to be
    recycled.
    B. PARMGEN-supported Application Configuration
    Enhancements/Updates:
    1. Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server (TEMS): Support the
    OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface KOBAGENT startup in a High
    Availability Hub configuration's
    &rte_hilev.&rte_name.RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) startup member.
    ᄑBenefit:  Starting up the KOBAGENT enhanced 3270UI component in
    an HA Hub allows for an HA Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager.
    2. Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server (TEMS): Support
    "GBL_DSN_TCP_SYSTCPD_TCPDATA" SYSTCPD DD dataset parameter to
    allow member name specification.  Modify the SYSTCPD DD dataset
    parameter default value from "TCPIP.SEZAINST" to
    "TCPIP.SEZAINST(TCPDATA)" default value. ᄑBenefit:  Customers
    would be able to specify any member name (including setting the
    value to a symbolic), instead of the hardcoded 'TCPDATA' member
    name, which is not necessarily the member name used at certain
    installations.
    3. Common Agent configuration: Support
    "GBL_DSN_TCP_SYSTCPD_TCPDATA" SYSTCPD DD dataset parameter to
    allow member name specification.  Modify the SYSTCPD DD dataset
    parameter default value from "TCPIP.SEZAINST" to
    "TCPIP.SEZAINST(TCPDATA)" default value. ᄑBenefit:  Customers
    would be able to specify any member name (including setting the
    value to a symbolic), instead of the hardcoded 'TCPDATA' member
    name, which is not necessarily the member name used at certain
    installations.
    4. Common Persistent Datastore configuration: Change the initial
    default value of the "RTE_PDS_KPDPROC_PREFIX" global Persistent
    Datastore maintenance procedure RTE prefix profile parameter
    from a hardcoded "KPDPROC" to the initial RTE started task
    prefix + "PD"  ("%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD" default value).   ᄑBenefit:
    This new "%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD"  default name follows the standard
    convention of all started task-related members set-up by
    PARMGEN..
    5. OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface:  Support the OMEGAMON
    Enhanced 3270 User Interface KOBAGENT startup in a High
    Availability Hub configuration's
    &rte_hilev.&rte_name.RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) startup member.
    ᄑBenefit:  Starting up the KOBAGENT enhanced 3270UI component in
    an HA Hub allows for an HA Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager.
    6. OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface: Reference the official
    abbreviation of the OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface
    (Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager) full component name to its official
    short name "Enhanced 3270UI" more consistently across several
    publications and on-line helps and PARMGEN profile job comments.
    7. OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS V4.2.0 and higher versions:
    modify the WKANSAMU(KC2GLBCP) KC2GLB* "copy global to RKC2GLBL
    DD dataset" job to refresh the KC2GLB* globals.  Add a note to
    the job indicating that "If you wish to preserve KC2GLB* members
    that already exist in library referenced by the RKC2GLBL DDNAME,
    and only have this KC2GBLCP global copy job only copy new
    KC2GLB* globals from the source to the output library, then
    uncomment out this statement below by removing the asterisk
    ("*") on column#1 (SYSIN section):  "IF EXIST(SYSUT2:&SYSMEMBER)
    THEN WRITEMEM WRITE=NO".  ᄑBenefit:  The job refreshes the
    KC2GLB* globals automatically.
    8. OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS V4.2.0 and higher versions:
    Allocate the library referenced in the OMEGAMON XE for CICS
    "KC2_CLASSIC_KC2GLB_SRCLIB" PARMGEN profile parameter KC2GLB*
    global source library.   ᄑBenefit: For ease-of-use, allocate
    user's KC2GLB* CICS global source library.
    9. OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS V4.2.0 and higher versions:
    Support a file-tailored KCIJPSEC composite security job and a
    file-tailored KOCJRACF standalone RACF security job by default
    for the KOCBRACF security module.  ᄑBenefit: For ease-of-use,
    support a KOCBRACF external security file-tailored PARMGEN job.
    10. OMEGAMON XE for DB2 on z/OS V4.2.0 and higher versions: Modi
    the startup for GBL_DB2_KD2_CLASSIC_STC (OMXE DB2 Classic), KD2_
    (OMXE DB2 CUA), KD5_AGT_STC (OMXE DB2 XE Agent), and KD2_DB_PWH_
    (OMXE DB2 Performance Warehouse) started tasks to not use the RE
    parameter .   ᄑBenefit: The parameter is not supported by DB2 it
    so the startup for the OMEGAMON monitors should not be specified
    to avoid any ABEND 0D3 errors at product startup.
    11.OMEGAMON XE for Storage V4.2.0 and higher versions:Change the
    initial default value of the "KDF_DFDSS_SLAVE_STC" OMEGAMON XE f
    Storage CUA profile parameter from a hardcoded "KDFDSPR" to the
    RTE started task prefix + "DFDS"  ("%RTE_STC_PREFIX%DFDS" defaul
    value).
    

Local fix

  • B. 3Q13A Issues:
    B1.SYMPTOM: The KCIJPIVP job report (WCONFIG(IVP$RPT))
    generates
    a number of KOC* members in the RKANSAM library from KCIJPALO
    JOBNAME to be "MISSING  KCIJPLOD".
      DESCRIPTION: The "SECTION 3: REQUIRED PARTITIONED DATASETS AND
    MISSING MEMBERS ONLY" reports that several KOC* members are
    missing but they are not really missing.  The KOC* members
    reside in &gbl_target_hilev.TKANMAC(KOC*) and are not missing in
    the RTE's RKANSAM read-only library.  The KCIJPIVP report will
    be updated to not flag these members are missing as the only 2
    members needed and copied from TKANMAC target library and copied
    over to RKANSAM read-only library are the KOBVMAC and KOBGMAC
    macros for use in the KCIJPLNK RKANMODU post-link job.
      WORKAROUND/TIP: : Apply the resolving 3Q13A HKCI310 PTF (APAR
    OAXXXXX) when available. In the interim, ignore the "SECTION 3:
    REQUIRED PARTITIONED DATASETS AND MISSING MEMBERS ONLY" IVP
    report section because members are not missing.
    
    B2.SYMPTOM: Error message: "KCIR@PG2 function =
    PROCESS_JCL_LIB LMINIT %GBL_TARGET_HILEV%.TKANSAM failed!
    'POS.OMEGAMON.TKANSAM' was not found in catalog.  RC = 8" is
    encountered when an incorrect GBL_TARGET_HILEV value is
    specified on the "KCIP@PG2 ---- SET UP PARMGEN WORK ENVIRONMENT
    FOR AN RTE (2 OF 3)" panel or the original SMP/E target
    high-level qualifier previously used is no longer valid for this
    PARMGEN invocation.
      DESCRIPTION: The GBL_TARGET_HILEV PARMGEN profile parameter
    variable (PLB1TLEV) in the user's ISPF profile
    (&userid.ISPF.ISPPROF(ISRPROF)) needs to be refreshed.
      WORKAROUND/TIP: Apply the resolving 3Q13A HKCI310 PTF (APAR
    OAXXXXX) when available. In the interim, adjust the PLB1TLEV
    ISPF variable in your ISRPROF member by navigating to ISPF
    Dialog Test>>Variable panels by following these steps:
    o Select Dialog Test option on the ISPF Primary Option Menu.
    o Select Variables option on the Primary Option panel.
    o On the Variables - Application: ISR panel, locate PLB1TLEV
    variable and change the value accordingly.
    o Save your changes and reinvoke PARMGEN's
    &gbl_target_hilev.TKANCUS library.
    
    
    B3.SYMPTOM: Warning message: "DATA SET
    &rte_plib_hilev.&rte_name.WCONFIG NOT IN CATALOG OR CATALOG CAN
    NOT BE ACCESSED MISSING DATA SET NAME+ MISSING NAME OF DATA SET
    TO BE ALLOCATED KCIR@PG2 function = WRITE_KCIDJP02
    
    &rte_plib_hilev.&rte_name.WCONFIG (&rte_name) ALLOC failed!
    RC = 12" is generated when trying to generate the KCIJPCFG job.
      DESCRIPTION: For a brand new RTE, there is no WCONFIG library
    yet so there is no need to specify a backup RTE profile member
    on the "REFRESH THE LPAR RTE USER AND IBM PROFILES" panel that
    is presented prior to generating the KCIJPCFG job.  The panel
    will no longer be presented if this is a first-time RTE set-up.
      WORKAROUND/TIP: Apply the resolving 3Q13A HKCI310 PTF (APAR
    OAXXXXX) when available. In the interim, simply press ENTER on
    the "REFRESH THE LPAR RTE USER AND IBM PROFILES" panel without
    specifying a backup profile member name, if this is a brand new
    RTE.
    
    B4.SYMPTOM: If you have OMXE for DB2 configured, the OMPE
    collector started task (GBL_DB2_KD2_CLASSIC_STC parameter value)
    gets error messaging "FPEV0025E  MSTR %KD2_OMPE_DSHLQ% TOO LONG
    FOR KEYWORD DATASERVERHLQ  FPEV0007I  DATA SERVER ENDED
                                         FPEV0453I UNSUBSCRIBING

    OM00 V511 PESERVER Subtask DGOVMSTR Normal Termination Complete
    KO2O1963E - OMEGAMON Subtask PESERVER not Active ".
      DESCRIPTION: The "KD2_OMPE_DSHLQ" PARMGEN LPAR profile
    parameter value in WCONFIG(%RTE_NAME) is too long (18-character
    limitation) and the PARMGEN KCIJPVAL validation job did not flag
    the error when the "KD2_OMPE_DSHLQ"  parameter contains a
    symbolic.  The KCIJPVAL validation job will add logic checking
    if the value has system variables.
      WORKAROUND/TIP: Apply the resolving 3Q13A HKCI310 PTF (APAR
    OAXXXXX) when available. In the interim, shorten the
    "KD2_OMPE_DSHLQ"  and "KD2_OMPE_VSAM_DSHLQ" parameter values to
    abide by the 18-character limitation and rerun the
    WCONFIG($PARSESV) and WKANSAMU(KCIJVUPV) jobs.

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF.                               *
    The following enhancements and issues will be addressed in the
    HKCI310 PARMGEN PTF UAXXXXX for APAR OAXXXXX: A. 3Q13A
    Enhancements: " RFE: Provide PARMGEN Workflow UI improvements
    for: A. PARMGEN Configuration Framework Enhancements/Updates: 1.
    Change the initial default value of the
    "RTE_VTAM_GBL_MAJOR_NODE" global VTAM major node profile
    parameter from a hardcoded "KCANDLE1" to the initial RTE VTAM
    node prefix + "NODE"  ("%RTE_VTAM_APPLID_PREFIX%NODE" default
    value).  ½Benefit:  This new %RTE_VTAM_APPLID_PREFIX%NODE
    default name follows the standard convention of all VTAM-related
    members set-up by PARMGEN. 2. Change the initial default value
    of the "RTE_VTAM_APPLID_PREFIX" global VTAM APPLID prefix from
    "CTD" to "TIV".  ½Benefit:  This new "TIV" default name follows
    the standard convention of Tivoli-based brand names. 3. Change
    the initial default value of the "RTE_PDS_KPDPROC_PREFIX" global
    Persistent Datastore maintenance procedure RTE prefix profile
    parameter from a hardcoded "KPDPROC" to the initial RTE started
    task prefix + "PD" ("%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD" default value).
    ½Benefit:   This new "%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD"  default name follows
    the standard convention of all started task-related members
    set-up by PARMGEN. 4. Modify the following jobs to better
    support JES3 installations with special allocation set-up.
    ½Benefit: Provide full JES3 support. o
    GBL_USER_JCL/WCONFIG(KCIJPCFG) - modify the PARMGEN Set up
    PARMGEN work environment for an RTE " job to better support JES3
    installations with special allocation set-up. o
    WCONFIG(KCIJPUP1) - modify the "Update interim libraries and
    create profiles" job to better support JES3 installations with
    special allocation set-up. o WKANSAMU(KCIJPCPR) - modify the
    "Backup RK* production user libs" job to better support JES3
    installations with special allocation set-up. o
    WKANSAMU(KCIJPCPW) - modify the "Backup WK* work libraries" job
    to better support JES3 installations with special allocation
    set-up. 5. Support a file-tailored UNIT="UNIT=%GBL_SYSDA_UNIT%"
    parameter in certain jobs that still generate a hardcoded
    UNIT=3390 or UNIT=SYSDA.  ½Benefit: Use the supported UNIT
    specified by customer for PARMGEN to generated in the jobs. 6.
    Remove DISP=OLD requirement in the DELRUN step of the
    WKANSAMU(KCIJPLOD) RTE Load job.  ½Benefit: Allow the KCIJPLOD
    RTE Load job to run even if members are in use in the DELRUN
    step of the KCIJPLOD job so started tasks do not need to be
    recycled. B. PARMGEN-supported Application Configuration
    Enhancements/Updates: 1. Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server
    (TEMS): Support the OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface
    KOBAGENT startup in a High Availability Hub configuration's
    &rte_hilev.&rte_name.RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) startup member.
    ½Benefit:  Starting up the KOBAGENT enhanced 3270UI component in
    an HA Hub allows for an HA Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager. 2. Tivoli
    Enterprise Monitoring Server (TEMS): Support
    "GBL_DSN_TCP_SYSTCPD_TCPDATA" SYSTCPD DD dataset parameter to
    allow member name specification.  Modify the SYSTCPD DD dataset
    parameter default value from "TCPIP.SEZAINST" to
    "TCPIP.SEZAINST(TCPDATA)" default value. ½Benefit:  Customers
    would be able to specify any member name (including setting the
    value to a symbolic), instead of the hardcoded 'TCPDATA' member
    name, which is not necessarily the member name used at certain
    installations. 3. Common Agent configuration: Support
    "GBL_DSN_TCP_SYSTCPD_TCPDATA" SYSTCPD DD dataset parameter to
    allow member name specification.  Modify the SYSTCPD DD dataset
    parameter default value from "TCPIP.SEZAINST" to
    "TCPIP.SEZAINST(TCPDATA)" default value. ½Benefit:  Customers
    would be able to specify any member name (including setting the
    value to a symbolic), instead of the hardcoded 'TCPDATA' member
    name, which is not necessarily the member name used at certain
    installations. 4. Common Persistent Datastore configuration:
    Change the initial default value of the "RTE_PDS_KPDPROC_PREFIX"
    global Persistent Datastore maintenance procedure RTE prefix
    profile parameter from a hardcoded "KPDPROC" to the initial RTE
    started task prefix + "PD"  ("%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD" default
    value).   ½Benefit: This new "%RTE_STC_PREFIX%PD"  default name
    follows the standard convention of all started task-related
    members set-up by PARMGEN.. 5. OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User
    Interface:  Support the OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface
    KOBAGENT startup in a High Availability Hub configuration's
    &rte_hilev.&rte_name.RKANCMDU(KDSSTRT1) startup member.
    ½Benefit:  Starting up the KOBAGENT enhanced 3270UI component in
    an HA Hub allows for an HA Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager. 6. OMEGAMON
    Enhanced 3270 User Interface: Reference the official
    abbreviation of the OMEGAMON Enhanced 3270 User Interface
    (Tivoli OMEGAMON Manager) full component name to its official
    short name "Enhanced 3270UI" more consistently across several
    publications and on-line helps and PARMGEN profile job comments.
    7. OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS V4.2.0 and higher versions:
    modify the WKANSAMU(KC2GLBCP) KC2GLB* "copy global to RKC2GLBL
    DD dataset" job to refresh the KC2GLB* globals.  Add a note to
    the job indicating that "If you wish to preserve KC2GLB* members
    that already exist in library referenced by the RKC2GLBL DDNAME,
    and only have this KC2GBLCP global copy job only copy new
    KC2GLB* globals from the source to the output library, then
    uncomment out this statement below by removing the asterisk
    ("*") on column#1 (SYSIN section):  "IF EXIST(SYSUT2:&SYSMEMBER)
    THEN WRITEMEM WRITE=NO".  ½Benefit:  The job refreshes the
    KC2GLB* globals automatically. 8. OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS
    V4.2.0 and higher versions: Allocate the library referenced in
    the OMEGAMON XE for CICS "KC2_CLASSIC_KC2GLB_SRCLIB" PARMGEN
    profile parameter KC2GLB* global source library.   ½Benefit: For
    ease-of-use, allocate user's KC2GLB* CICS global source library.
    9. OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS V4.2.0 and higher versions:
    Support a file-tailored KCIJPSEC composite security job and a
    file-tailored KOCJRACF standalone RACF security job by default
    for the KOCBRACF security module.  ½Benefit: For ease-of-use,
    support a KOCBRACF external security file-tailored PARMGEN job.
    10. OMEGAMON XE for Storage V4.2.0 and higher versions:  Change
    the initial default value of the "KDF_DFDSS_SLAVE_STC" OMEGAMON
    XE for Storage CUA profile parameter from a hardcoded "KDFDSPR"
    to the initial RTE started task prefix + "DFDS"
    ("%RTE_STC_PREFIX%DFDS" default value).   ½Benefit:   This new
    "%RTE_STC_PREFIX%DFDS" default name follows the standard
    convention of all started task-related members set-up by
    PARMGEN.
