Issue/Introduction

Running an SMP/E ACCEPT CHECK  results in the same message on several modules.

GIM24701W    SMP/E COULD NOT OBTAIN LINK-EDIT PARAMETERS FOR LOAD MODULE xxxxxxxx  FOR SYSMOD xxxxxxx. DEFAULTS WERE USED.

Want to verify whether these messages are ok before continuing.

 

 

 

Environment

Release : ANY

Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS

Resolution

Reviewed ACCEPT CHECK output and confirmed that the GIM24701W messages were normal and acceptable.

In the message's Explanation, it states: 

 "Note: This message is normal when SMP/E ACCEPTs elements into the distribution libraries for the first time."

The first-time of a run of ACCEPT, on the noted PTFs, accounts for the GIM24701W warning messages. 

As a rule, the GIM24701W messages should be ignored. 
The reason being that a product's runtime libraries and USS directories are taken from the target zone, and the modules are not linked based on default settings when the APPLY is done. 

The distribution zone, which is updated by the ACCEPT, is only a backup of the target zone. 
The reason the modules are being linked to distribution, based on defaults, is because it is just a backup. 
Runtime will not be using the modules from the distribution zone. 

In an SMP/E LIST ALLZONES report, entries that are shown are those that are in the target zone (CAIT0), and not in the distribution zone (CAID0). 
The target zone is shown because runtime will not be using any modules from the distribution zone.
