PRODUCT: CPE Version 5.1

CHECKSUM: CDB84DB6

USERS AFFECTED:
All.

PROBLEM(S) FIXED:
DF22445
IPv6 enablement for CA ESP Workload Automation (ESP Agent
Agent communication and Workstation Server).
IPv6 implementation for Network Delivery Services (NDS).

DF23122
Corrections to CA ESP Workload Automation listener and connect
retry and recovery following a TCP/IP outage or TCP/IP failure.
Network Delivery Services (NDS) listener retry capability added.
Network Delivery Services (NDS) listener and connect default
retry interval set to 60 seconds, but retry failure messages
issued every 5 minutes.

DF23219
Optional HOME or HOME(<host_or_ip>) operand added to the
following Network Delivery Services (NDS) commands -

NETWORK START LISTENER
NETWORK SET CONNECTIONS
NETWORK START CONNECTION

When NETWORK START LISTENER HOME or HOME(<host_or_ip>) is
specified, NDS will bind to the default or specified local IP
address before listening for incoming connection requests.
When NETWORK SET CONNECTIONS HOME or HOME(<host_or_ip>) is
specified, NDS will by default bind to the default or specified
local IP address when connecting to a remote NDS partner.
When NETWORK START CONNECTION HOME or HOME(<host_or_ip>) is
specified, NDS will bind to the default or specified local IP
address when connecting to a remote NDS partner.

The NETWORK SET CONNECTIONS and NETWORK START CONNECTION commands
also provide an optional NOHOME operand to override a previous
HOME or HOME(<host_or_ip) specification.

DF23222
Correction to very rare occurrence of abend S0C4 due to stray
garbage value in an access register while processing a Network
Delivery Services (NDS) transmission of an internodal job
tracking record.

DF23401
If NETWORK QUEUE DISPLAY command is issued with conflicting
operands, send command response message 3359E to command issuer.

DF23411
CA ESP Workload Automation master could hang if stopped
immediately after initiating Network Delivery Services (NDS)
connection.

TYPE/RESTART:
Warm restart ESP Workload Manager subsystems.

USERS AFFECTED:
All CA ESP Workload Automation users.

PROBLEM(S) FIXED:
DF16293
This PTF reduces the likelihood of a S0D6 abend in CA ESP
Workload Automation if an operator issues an AUX_AS CANCEL or
AUX_AS BOUNCE command to cancel or cancel-and-restart the
Encore auxiliary address space without first issuing an
ENCPARM QUIESCE command.

DF22990
This PTF prevents a U2508 abend in the TSO session of users
who access CA ESP Workload Automation through CommServ (CA ESP
Workload Automation Communication Server). The abend
occurred if ESP Encore 3.1 was installed and a CSF user
chose a job for restart. (CommServ access is selected when
the name of an APPC side information entry is specified in
the XSYSTEM argument of the command that calls program ESP
from a TSO session or from a batch job.) A subsystem
request extension block is now treated uniformly with or
without CommServ.

TYPE/RESTART:
Warm start CA ESP Workload Automation.
TSO users: exit and reenter the CA ESP Workload Automation interface.

If an error occurred extending the NETQUEUE data set to its
maximum size, an abend S01D-CF050311 would occur on the next
attempt to extend the data set, due to an attempt to extend its
data space beyond its maximum size.

PROBLEM(S) FIXED:
DF23018 (Issue 16018071)
In very rare situtations system macros working with data sets
(OPEN,READ,WRITE,...) can abend. This is likely to happen
with PDSE-type data sets. PTF SU02525 implemented a protection
of ESP WLM from these abends. However CLOSE macro was not
covered by SU02525. This PTF implements a protection from
CLOSE macro abends too.

TYPE/RESTART:
Warm restart of ESP Workload Manager.
TSO ESP Workload Manager restart.

If USERMOD 63 is set, then system commands issued by the VS

not execute under the ESP Workload Manager's event owner's
SAF security token. This restores pre ESP Workload

SCOT008.zip ZIP 23 KB 06/12/03 PRODUCT: COP VERSION 1.2 CHECKSUM: 71D23F09 USERS AFFECTED: All PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When displaying a multi-line message in ISPF, the PROCESS_MLWTO indicator is not displayed as per the documentation. Any MVS wild card characters (* or %) in the command will cause the command to be rejected by SAF and thus not executed. The indicator '@' shows when '*' should appear for messages issued by authorized programs running in a non-system key. CORRECTION DESCRIPTION: The PROCESS_MLWTO indicator is now properly displayed. This PTF screens out wild card characters when checking for SAF authorization. The authorization test is corrected. TYPE/RESTART: Restart Console Manager with the RELOAD option. None
SCOT006.zip ZIP 4 KB 06/12/03 PRODUCT: COP VERSION 1.2 CHECKSUM: DF118A66 USERS AFFECTED: All PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: ABEND0C4 issuing a system command in a client address space. An attempt is made to reference a data area which is in the ESP/CM private area. CORRECTION DESCRIPTION: The tracing logic is bypassed unless the current address space is the ESP/CM server. TYPE/RESTART: TSO users exit and reenter ISPF. None
SCOT005.zip ZIP 12 KB 06/12/03 PRODUCT: COP VERSION 1.2 CHECKSUM: 270EC44D USERS AFFECTED: All PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The nature of the auxiliary address space is awkward and creates problems for some users. CORRECTION DESCRIPTION: Initialization is changed to use new technology. The auxiliary address space is now a system address space. As a result, it is no longer necessary that the JCL for the console manager reside in SYS1.PROCLIB. It can reside in any procedure library available to JES. TYPE/RESTART: None required. The changes will take effect the next time ESP C/M initializes the auxiliary address space. None
SCOT003.zip ZIP 13 KB 06/12/03 PRODUCT: COP VERSION 1.2 CHECKSUM: 3008D076 USERS AFFECTED: All users of ESP/CM. PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 1. When the descriptor codes for a message are modified in such a manner as to change it from a non-action to an action message (or vice versa), the action indicator in the system log is not modified accordingly. 2. Memory may be overlaid under some conditions, due to an incorrect length test. 3. When processing integer or boolean variables in a message rule, an incorrect length may be used. 4. The trace buffer for MVS commands issued (introduced with release 1.1.2 of ECM) may overflow, resulting in memory corruption. Symptoms include U2202 abends. CORRECTION DESCRIPTION: 1. When the descriptor codes for a message are changed, the system log action indicator is now set appropriately. 2. The length tests are now performed correctly. 3. Length specifications on integer and boolean variables are now processed correctly. 4. Data in the trace buffer now wraps correctly when the end of the buffer is detected. TYPE/RESTART: Restart ESP/CM with the RELOAD option. None
SCOT002.zip ZIP 5 KB 06/12/03 PRODUCT: COP VERSION 1.2 CHECKSUM: A5D9CAF6 USERS AFFECTED: All PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Various problems, including ABEND0C4, may occur as a result of a storage overlay. CORRECTION DESCRIPTION: The length check is corrected. TYPE/RESTART: Warm restart. None
