Issue/Introduction

We are going to apply PTF UA97780 that has following HOLDDATA note:

* FUNCTION AFFECTED: DFSMS (OA55827) *
* DFSMSrmm *
****************************************************************
* DESCRIPTION : User Exit *
****************************************************************
* TIMING : Post-APPLY *
****************************************************************
Exit modules CBRUXVNL, CBRUXEJC and CBRUXENT will be relinked with the installation of this APAR. These exits are outboard policy management processing exits for system managed tape libraries. If you are not using DFSMSrmm please take the appropriate action as recommended by your tape management system provider.). ..............................................................................................................

I would like to clarify with you is there a need to do something?

Environment

Release:
Component: 1

Resolution

The exits must be re-linked. The first usermods must be restored before applying the IBM Apar and then the exits need to be received and applied again. There isn't anything extra that you would need to do when applying the IBM APAR OA55827 and there aren't any known issues either.
