Issue/Introduction

I am following doc at Use the Create Service Order Online Interface (broadcom.com)

to download the certificate and upload to mainframe.  When I ftp the downloaded certificate file to the mainframe I only get the first record

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----.MIIEvjCCA6agAwIBAgIQBtjZBNVYQ0b2ii+nVCJ+xDANBgkqhkiG

Organization  . . . : PS  
Record format . . . : VB  
Record length . . . : 84  
Block size  . . . . : 6233

 

Environment

Release : 1.0

Cause

Documentation at above URL incomplete  
As stated: 

Upload the certificate as text data to your z/OS system in RECFM=VB and LRECL=84 format. If you use FTP, use the following commands to avoid truncation:
ASCII
QUOTE SITE LRECL=84 RECFM=VB
PUT your_PC_file_name
 'your.zos.dataset.name'

quit
The certificate now resides on z/OS.


 

Resolution

FTP instructions should include the WRAP parm on the QUOTE line which did resolve the problem.

Upload the certificate as text data to your z/OS system in RECFM=VB and LRECL=84 format. If you use FTP, use the following commands to avoid truncation:
ASCII
QUOTE SITE WRAP LRECL=84 RECFM=VB
PUT your_PC_file_name
 'your.zos.dataset.name'

quit
The certificate now resides on z/OS.
