Does IBM PTF UA96475 have any impact on Endevor 18
Article ID: 186378
Endevor Software Change Manager (SCM)
IBM PTF UA96475 has holddata that states software that references PSASTAK must be converted to use PSACSTK as the pointer to the normal FRR stack. Does this PTF have any impact on Endevor V18 ?
Release : 18.0
Component : CA Endevor Software Change Manager
Endevor doesn't use PSASTAK so it is not affected by IBM PTF UA96475
"z/OS HIS Sampling Work Unit Address Macro IHAPPR maps the z/OS HIS sampling program parameter. The program parameter bytes 0-3 contain a work unit address. This APAR incompatibly changes the work unit address such that some high and low order bits will contain state information. Based on the work unit type, a new work unit specific mask must be applied to remove the work unit state and obtain the work unit address. Applying the new work unit specific mask will yield the expected result with and without the APAR. The work unit specific masks are as follows: Use this mask to isolate the WEB address for SRB mode PPR_WU_ADDR_MASK_SRB EQU X'7FFFFFF8' Use this mask to isolate the TCB address for task mode PPR_WU_ADDR_MASK_TASK EQU X'00FFFFF8' ACTION: Software must no longer reference the IHAPSA field PSASTAK. With this PTF, PSASTAK is no longer the beginning of the normal FRR stack. PSACSTK is an existing pointer to the beginning of the normal FRR stack. Software that references PSASTAK must be converted to use PSACSTK as the pointer to the normal FRR stack. 1 Apply service as noted in the dependency hold and any related service from Independent Software Vendor products to correct references to PSASTAK. 2 Scan code for software developed by your installation for references to PSASTAK. 3 Convert references of PSASTAK to use PSACSTK as a pointer to the normal FRR stack. What you might see: Software that continue to reference PSASTAK may experience ABEND0C4 and other symptoms after this PTF is applied.)."
