We are using the same SVC number, just replacing the unsecured R16
version with the new, improved secure R17 version.

Has FACPARMS been updated to the 17.0 svc?

I've started the upgrade to Release 17, and in doing so, have decided
to
embrace CA's recommendation, following the steps to install a secured
SVC. Everything seemed fine, and my testing was all successful.

However, later in the day, programmers started getting SExx abends. I
was able to narrow this down to only local mode jobs that also used
Fast
Access. Has anyone else encountered this?

Tom,

Once you find out what the root cause of this is, would you mind sharing
it? We're starting to look at a migration to r17 and I was concidering
going to a secured SVC as part of it, but we have Fast Access 8.0.1 as
well
and if there's some kind of incompatibility that can't easily be worked
thru, I'd rather not even start down that path.

Re: [IDMSVENDOR-L] Secured SVC Using Local Mode Fast Access
"Diane Montstream of ASG answered this quickly and completely through the
List (don't know if you all saw it) -

As part of the Fast Access install, there is a job called FACPARMJ. It
assembles the FACPRM macro, and when linked creates the FACPARMS load
module.

One of the parameters to the FACPRM macro is IDMSSVC=. The comments in
the FACPARMJ job state that if you specify a valid SVC number, this will
allow Fast Access to bypass cache controllers. Hmm. Not really sure
what that means.

Anyway, the solution is to specify IDMSSVC=0. Supposedly, this will not
affect performance. There are no PTFs required.

I have implemented this solution, and things are working great once
again. Needless to say, this will be a step in my production
implementation that I don't intend to forget.
