In XCOM for Z/OS at release 12.0, fix SO09365 introduced an enhancement to the record packing feature which increased the maximum buffer size (specified in parameter MAXPACK) from 31K to 1M (up to MAXPACK=1023000)
Is it possible to use this enhancement when transferring to non-Z/OS platforms?
Release : 12.0
Component : XCOM Data Transport for z/OS
This enhancement is supported by Windows and Unix/Linux partners as follows:
Under the covers, this enhancement introduces a new type of record packing in the control block that is sent to the partner with the requested transfer parameters (also known as "XCOM header"). This change requires logic to be added to the partners in order to recognize the new record packing type.
When the partner does not support that new type of record packing, it issues an error about "unsupported record packing type"
