Problem summary

  •   USERS AFFECTED: All File Manager users with COBOL copybooks.
    
      PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Provide a way to force the use of the
                           File Manager internal COBOL compiler
                           (that is, the compiler shipped with
                           FM .
    
      RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.
    
    File Manager will currently load and use the customer's
    installed copy of the COBOL compiler.
    There is no way to force the use of the File Manager internal
    COBOL compiler system-wide.
    Individual TSO users and batch jobs can allocate ddname FMNCOB
    to DUMMY to force the use for a single session.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • File Manager has been updated to allow control over the usage of
    the File Manager internal compiler.
    A new FACILITY class profile called : FILEM.COBOL.INTERNAL can
    be defined.
    If a userid has been granted access other than NONE then the
    File Manager internal compiler will be used , even if there is a
    customer installed COBOL compiler (IGYCRCTL  present on the
    system.
    
    Please note that because File Manager is issuing RACROUTE call
    with STATUS=ACCESS , some 3rd party security products
    (ie non RACF  require additional definitions to avoid S047
    security abends.
