NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Issue/Introduction

Problems with USS after upgrade to 12.2 - the parameter group fails with
N12802 SYSPARMS OPERAND UNIXATH=/tmp IS INVALID OR OUT OF RANGE.

even though the path is correct as shown in the HOME directory of the ACF2 definition for the Netmaster userid.

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Cause

Maintenance mismatch between the CC2DPLD and the EXEC libraries/ VSAM files.

Resolution

Cycling with the correct  CC2DPLD in both the region and the NETMSSI corrected the problem.

 

Additional Information

Additional symptoms experienced:

1) Review of the /tmp directory should show these entries 

-r-xr-xr-t   1 CSNM     ADMNDGRP       0 May 03 21:04 NM129   
srw-rw-rw-   1 CSNM     ADMNDGRP       0 May 08 06:10 netmaster.unix.01CB

but contains only entries for other products.

 
2) The ZFS parameter group points to /u/usrs/CA/NETM
The filesystem is mounted, but while the ZFS ILOG does not show errors, it is incomplete.
Several messages are missing.

Time     Log Data             
00.02.07 IAIN0126 Processing for parameter group $NM ZFS started
00.02.07 HFS SET ROOT= /u/usrs/CA/NETM
00.02.07 N10001 HFS Root: /u/usrs/CA/NETM
00.02.07 IAIN0178 Processing for parameter group $NM ZFS ended. Status is Completed.
**END**

 5) There are anomalies in the UNIX SYSPARMS. 
     When issuing SHOW SYSPARMS=UNIX from the NetMaster region, customer's environment shows

Show sysparms=unix
N22201 SYSPARM VALUE           SOURCE        NAME/USER     LINKNAME
N22202 UNIXAPID OMVSAPPL       DEFAULT       -
N22202 UNIXBUSR NO             DEFAULT       -
N22202 UNIXDBUG NO             CUSTOMIZER    USS
N11907 *END*


Broadcom environment shows

Show sysparms=unix
N22201 SYSPARM  VALUE          SOURCE        NAME/USER     LINKNAME
N22202 UNIXAPID OMVSAPPL       DEFAULT       -
N22202 UNIXDBUG NO             CUSTOMIZER    USS
N22202 UNIXPATH /tmp           CUSTOMIZER    USS
N11907 *END*

 

3) Review of the activity log shows these messages every minute

00.58.37 N3AN90 TCP/IP SERVER REGISTER FAILED. PATH: /tmp/solve RC:8 FB: 0 ERR
00.58.37 N3AE01 37 - EADDRINUSE - ADDRESS ALREADY IN USE


4) The region and NETMSSI show a LEVEL of 1904. That is base level through June 2020.
     Maintenance levels of Jun 30th 2020 and beyond should show  LEVEL 00 or higher - it is 2 digits instead of 4.


5) Checked two modules from SO15228 to verify fixes are on that move NM129 out of the CC2DZFS.
     $$SYSPRO APAR $NMINWIZ  checks a module from the fix in the CC2DEXEC library.
     The result is correct.

Name     APAR     Type  Ddname   Dataset                    
$NMINWIZ SO15228  OML   COMMANDS AUDE0.MOTM.SMP.D81.CC2DEXEC


    SHOW PTF - NM0002u2 from that same PTF for a module contained in the CC2DPLD shows

sh ptf=nm0002u2
N14510 PTF LEVEL FOR MODULE NM0002U2 IS SO05668 VER: 0801 ADT: 2018/09/27-20.39

So the maintenance levels in the EXEC files are higher than those in the CC2DPLD.
