    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Apply the PTF.                                               *
    ****************************************************************
    Support for the underscore in MVS system symbols was added in
    z/OS Version 2 Release 2. The TCP/IP profile processing code did
    not support the underscore as a valid character in an MVS system
    symbol.
    

Problem conclusion

  • TCP/IP code to process the profile data set has been updated to
    treat the underscore as a valid character in a MVS system
    symbol.
