As part of the upgrade of Panvalet had to relink the PAM module. Do they need to be relinked again when doing a z/OS upgrade?
Do not need to be re-linked for a z/OS upgrade. The PAM module only needs to be re-linked when doing a Panvalet upgrade /or when any PTFs hits PAM.
The best practice is to not statically link PAM in user programs and do the proper dynamic calls to PAM instead in the user program.
