Title: PEA: PTF RO34230 INCORRECTLY PUBLISHED WITH HOLDDATA.
Product: IDMS
Release: 18.0
Opsys: OS
Solution #: 114

Apar No=RI35691

Description:

**** PRODUCT ERROR ALERT ****

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
PTF RO34230 for IDMS v18 was incorrectly published with HOLDDATA supplied thru the SMP ++HOLD statement. The HOLDDATA is referring to optional APAR LS39409, but within IDMS v18 optional APARs are no longer used to tailor CA IDMS functionality.

SYMPTOMS:
When applying PTF RO34230 thru SMP, z/OS clients will be notified that special action is required if they have optional APAR LS39409 applied. This may be very confusing since optional APARs are no longer used within IDMS v18.

IMPACT:
In order to successfully apply PTF RO34230, z/OS clients should simply ignore the HOLDDATA.

CIRCUMVENTION:
There is no circumvention available, except then ignoring the HOLDDATA.

PRODUCT(S) AFFECTED: CA IDMS Release 18.0
