During an IPL, and as the CA Master Address Space is initialized,a Logrec error “PIDS/CATARGHW FLDS/CPUTYPE RIDS/UNKNOWN RIDS/CAMASTER” may be noticed after an upgrade to any of these IBM zEnterprise machine types.
Included within the the CA Master Address Space is a processor table; a feature setting that other CA products or solutions can potentially check and optimize their code path depending upon the processor capabilities. However, at the moment, we are unaware of any product that uses this information. Therefore, this processor table plays no part in the normal functionality of CAMASTER or any Broadcom product that uses the CA Master Address Space. Despite any of these messages being issued, the CA Master Address Space and the other Broadcom products will successfully initialize and continue to operate routinely.
If issued, and depending upon the machine type, customers will receive the following message written to LOGREC:
“PIDS/CATARGHW FLDS/CPUTYPE RIDS/UNKNOWN RIDS/CAMASTER”
Common Services for z/OS r15.0 executing on a z15 or z16 processor.
The new machine type is not found in the current processor table.
As the specific machine type is not included in the CAMASTER processor table, and in order to prevent the message from being issued, apply the appropriate maintenance based upon the machine type as listed:
A detailed description of the CA Master component of CA Common Services for r15.0 can be found under "CA Master Address Space" in the following documentation:
