Issue/Introduction

In the ISV SCRT report with Broadcom software , some products are consistently reporting the wrong version number, or showing products not in use.

For example, for ALLOCATE it reports version 14.00.00 where the current GA release is 12.5

Cause

Vantage is doing #FLOID calls for all of the LMP keys listed below, so all of those have the potential to be reported incorrectly.  With no version provided on the #FLOID call, CCS code looks it up in the caller's #MODID which is actually a Vantage module.

Symptoms include SCRT reports displaying any of the LMP keys listed, with incorrect versions of either 14.00.xx or 14.01.xx (Vantage's most recent versions).

Environment

Customer's running CA VANTAGE

Resolution

The following VANTAGE solutions are available :

- for VANTAGE 14.0  ---> LU03646

- for VANTAGE 14.1  ---> LU03817 

 

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
Vantage STC incorrectly queries some non-Vantage owned LMP key codes which
can result in an incorrect SCRT report.
 
This SYSMOD introduces new logic to Vantage for the verification of LMP key
codes and ensures that only the correct Vantage product LMP key codes are
being verified.
Additionally, the other Vantage-owned LMP key codes from the Vantage product
family are now verified by Vantage using the GMI K6 LMP key code.
 
SYMPTOMS:
The SCRT report includes an incorrect release or version number for one or
more Broadcom products for z/OS. For example, the use of CA 7 12.6 is
reported as CA 7 14.0 when Vantage 14.0 is being used on the same LPAR.
