Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • Enhancement Apar.  File Manager DB2 component has been changed
    to provide a new FMN2SSDM parameter USER_SELECT_EDIT.  The
    default is Y, which maintains the current behaviour.
    
    No re-assembly of the FMN2POPT module is required for customers
    unless the new behavior is required.  When the new behavior is
    required, the new FMN2SSDM parameter should be added for each
    DB2 sub-system where that new behavior is required, and the
    FMN2UMDP usermod re-applied.
