Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of the IBM Communications Server for z/OS Version  *
    * 2 Release 1 and 2                                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * New Function to improve control over internal mode VTAM VIT  *
    * (VTAM Internal Trace) options.  You can use ?Full VIT        *
    * control? to control the use of all VIT options, at any time, *
    * using VTAM start options or the MODIFY TRACE and MODIFY      *
    * NOTRACE commands. This includes the ability to disable all   *
    * internal mode VIT recording. The DISPLAY TRACE command       *
    * always displays the current settings of all VIT in this      *
    * ?Full VIT control? mode.                                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Apply PTF.                                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    With the new VITCTRL VTAM start option set to FULL you can
    modify the settings of all VIT options using the MODIFY TRACE
    and MODIFY NOTRACE commands or by start options for
    TYPE=VTAM,MODE=INT processing. By default, VTAM starts these VIT
    options: API, PIU, SSCP, MSG, NRM, CIO, and PSS (default
    options).
    

Problem conclusion

  • The default VIT options are the recommended set of trace options
    to use and disabling any of the default VIT options can trigger
    a health check notification and impacts VTAM serviceability.
