Environment

z/os

Resolution

1  Not directly, only through documented DFSMS macro interfaces to VSAM, BPAM, QSAM etc.

2  Not applicable.

3  Yes, only for timer services in the sub-task engine that is used by the TCP/IP and USS interfaces. The sub-task engine is not used by the VSAM or Dataset Services sub-tasks.

4 It has not occurred and since our DIE exit is not used by tasks that issue VSAM or other DFSMS macros, we do not expect it can occur.

5 No.
