Issue/Introduction

While running the same TDM masking job on the mainframe and windows, we noticed the masked output values are different.  The mainframe generates a different set of values as compared to what FDM on Windows generates.  I am using the same seed table on the mainframe.  The expectation is that the value should be the same regardless of where the job runs.

Environment

Release : TDM 4.10.x

Cause

It is a difference between the implementation of Windows and the implementation regarding a particular RUNTIME option

The option is CASEINSENSITIVEHASHLOV

On Windows, it is turned ON by default.

On MF, it is turned OFF by default

Resolution

To make the masking on Windows and MF consistent, ensure the CASEINSENSITIVEHASHLOV option is set the same, by either turning both ON or OFF.
