Upgraded to zVSE 6.1 and unable to get Dynam with CICS TS 2.1 to initialize

Dynam for VSEDynam VSE Option
Trying to make zVSE 6.1 w/ CA-CIS and DYNAM w/ CICS TS 2.1 to run.
Here are the steps I performed:
- zVSE 6.1 and CICS/ICCF run ok after the initial installation; - The IBM PSP(PTF's...) was installed; - zVSE 6.1 and CICS/ICCF run ok after the PSP installation; - at this point everything runs ok (POWER and CICS/ICCF) - here I began to install CA-CIS and Dynam/VSE - all PTF's listed in the CA UPGRAD document were installed (without remarks) - created VSAM file initialized CAICUI data set - included // DLBL CAICUI,'CAI.CUI.CONTROL.DATASET',,VSAM and // DLBL CAICUIU,'CAI.CUI.CONTROL.DATASET',,VSAM in STDLABUP - performed IPL - POWER abended for 'PHASE NOT FOUND' at start-up - included CA libs in the LIBDEF proc and performed another IPL - POWER started-up successfully - CICS/ICCF failed to start-up with 0S03I PROGRAM CHECK INTERRUPTION - HEX LOCATION 034FC1E2 - INTERRUPTION CODE 07 - DATA EXCEPTION
This is not a CA Dynam problem. The abend is occurring during CICS initialization in CICS phase DFHSIP31. At this stage, no CA code is active in CICS.
Customer advised to open a PMR with IBM who determined why CICS was abending. The problem was in the proc SPLEVEL which had to be edited to change the date format.
