    *                      UNUSABLE state if policy not            *

    ****************************************************************
    If a bundle defining a policy scope is enabled before the
    policy to which it refers is installed then the policy scope
    bundle part is set in UNUSABLE state. This prevents
    the subsequent enable of the bundle once the policy has been
    installed. Instead the bundle defining the policy scope has to
    be discarded and re-installed.
    An additional problem fixed by this apar is that
    the setting of a bundle to ENABLED or DISABLED via CEMT
    may hang if the bundle contains a policy. As part of the
    processing DFHMPMO is called to find a model that matches the
    policy (SELECT_MODEL). DFHMPMO gets the MPMOD shared lock
    before searching for a matching model, however if it finds
    a an existing MPTAS control block for this policy it exits
    the program without releasing the lock and CICS has to be
    restarted to resolve the hang.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHMPDD has been altered to set a policy scope bundle part to
    DISABLED if the policy to which it refers is not installed.
    This will allow its bundle to be successfully enabled after
    the policy is installed.
    DFHMPMO has been altered to release the MPMOD lock on exit
    from a SELECT_POLICY call.
