Why does program BMCSIU now have to be APF authorized?
With regards to message ITKH000E, changes on r15 have meant that the CA Database Management Solutions for IMS must now be executed from a STEPLIB concatenation with APF authorization. This change was introduced with r15 PTF RO51027 which included the following Hold data:
++HOLD (RO51027) SYSTEM FMID(CIDOF00)
REASON (EC ) DATE (12282)
This PTF requires the following products to be APF
Authorized for correct execution. If the steplib is not
APF authorized, the results are unpredictable.
CA Database Analyzer for IMS for z/OS
CA Database Copier for IMS for z/OS
CA Database Organizer for IMS for z/OS
CA High Performance Recovery for IMS for z/OS
CA Secondary Index Builder for IMS for z/OS
Therefore for release r15 and above, APF authorization is now required.
