File Not Found when attempting to acquire Enhanced PSP Tool extract files

Technote (troubleshooting)


You receive a "File Not Found" message when attempting to acquire extract files by FTP for the Enhanced Preventive Service Planning (PSP) Tool.


The Enhanced PSP tool was sunset in 2009 as announced in the z/OS V1.11 Announcement letter, at SHARE, and on the IBM Technical Support website. As a result, the Enhanced PSP tool, and the associated host compare program and extract files, were removed from the IBM Technical Support website on 20 January 2011. This was to ensure that you would not acquire what you think is a comprehensive, daily updated file when in fact it was last updated 19 January 2011.

Resolving the problem

Use the FIXCAT HOLDs and REPORT MISSINGFIX command, as documented under EPSPT replaced by FIXCAT and REPORT MISSINGFIX in the z/OS documentation:
The Enhanced PSP Tool's function has been replaced by the addition of FIXCAT (fix category) information to Enhanced HOLDDATA and the REPORT MISSINGFIX function introduced in z/OS® V1R10 SMP/E, which offers distinct advantages over the Enhanced PSP Tool.

For more information, see Format and explanation of data for FIXCAT HOLDs section and REPORT MISSINGFIX command in the z/OS V2.1 documentation.
