    The DFHDPLOY utility added in CICS TS V5.3 did not give adequate
    diagnostic information in the event that a failure occurred
    during a DEPLOY or UNDEPLOY operation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHDPLOY has been updated to resolve issues during DEPLOY BUNDLE
    to ensure the correct bundle definition is reported to the user
    and improved diagnostics are available should failure occur
    during DEPLOY or UNDEPLOY processing.
    Support has been improved for regions running CICS Transaction
    Server for z/OS V5.1, where the AVAILABILITY attribute is not
    supported. This provides a consistent behaviour for DFHDPLOY
    across all supported CICS releases.
    Enhancements to DFHDPLOY trace are also provided.
    .
    The CICS Transaction Server for z/OS Version 5 Release 3
