Is this a bug?

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

This is not a bug.  The release 15.2 of IMS was only an upgrade in certain areas.  IBM documents this:

"The IMS installed level is updated to 15.2 in the SCDINLVL control block field. Output locations, including those in the preceding list, that reference the SCDINLVL control block field are updated to 15.2. However, because the IMS installed level that is specified in the SSCDIMSR control block field and the DFSLEV constant is not changed, the output locations that reference SSCDIMSR or DFSLEV will continue to display 15.1 even after you apply PH16682/xxx."
