Error description

  • DFSISTS symbolic terminal output report is different from IMS V9
    when SYM NAME= option is specified.
    The issue was found after IMS V11 migration.
    The DFSISTS0 output message text was definitely not the same as
    03 log message text.
    In our case, the corrupted character was Japanese 'Halfwidth
    KATAKANA Letter'.
    Our customer use the IMSLOGP output when the message recovery
    would be needed, so the original data is required at the recover
    And does not want to use the IMSLOGO DD output for the recovery
    because of their operation.
    Then we accpet the fix like as IMS V9 DFSISTS0.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All IMS V11 users.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: DFSISTS0 did not support characters     *
    *                      from some codepages.                    *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: INSTALL CORRECTIVE SERVICE FOR APAR/PTF      *
    ****************************************************************
    Characters from certain codepages (such as Japanese language
    characters) were being replaced with spaces when found in the
    message text of log records.
    
    When using the 'NON PRINT=HEX' option, characters considered
    non-printable are replaced with spaces so messages can be
    printed with clarity.  However, the EBCDIC values to correlate
    to "printable characters" varies based on codepages and
    languages used.
    
    When not using 'NON PRINT=HEX', message text was still being
    converted to replace certain characters with spaces.
    

Problem conclusion

  • GEN:
    KEYWORDS:
    
    *** END IMS KEYWORDS ***
    This APAR changes the behavior of DFSISTS0 to allow for
    characters from different codepages to be printed.
    When the 'NON PRINT=HEX' option is NOT specified, message text
    will no longer be converted to spaces, and the raw data will
    be printed according to the codepage being used.
