ACF2 ACF2 - z/OS ACF2 - MISC

Issue/Introduction

When trying to apply PTF SO04448, the job fails with:

GIM65901E ** MODULE ACF82LWA IS NEEDED TO BUILD THE FOLLOWING LOAD MODULES FOR SYSMOD SO04448 BUT CAN NOT BE USED. ITS
             DISTRIBUTION ZONE RMID CAX1G00 IS DIFFERENT FROM THE TARGET ZONE RMID RO98324.      

How is this fixed?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

That means the target and distribution zones are not in synch. IBM says to do this:

Programmer response
List the module in the target and distribution zones and compare the FMID, RMID, and UMIDs. (If the message indicated an FMID or RMID mismatch, the UMIDs may also mismatch.) Then you may be able to use the ACCEPT or RESTORE commands to synchronize the target zone and distribution zone either restoring or accepting the module's target zone FMID, RMID, or UMID (whichever was indicated as causing the mismatch). This will allow SMP/E to find a usable copy of the module in the distribution zone when you rerun the job.

******************

ACCEPT PTF RO98324.
