Issue/Introduction

Currently ALTSYS is being used on the ACF2 record OPTS in GSO.  The plans are to move all the SGP records to a masked SYSID of ****.  At that time, is ALTSYS needed?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The only reason to use ALTSYS would be from reading in SGP records that are from a different SYSID record.  If all the SGP records are under the masked SYSID(****) then the use of ALTSYS is moot as there are no other records to read in.
