Issue/Introduction

If you reassemble and link the CAVHCONF parameter with the following syntax PINT=INTBAT,INTCICS,SYMCICS (with the brackets missing) you receive a clean assembly (zero return code) but when you run CAS9 to start CA Intertest and Symdump V 10 only the FIRST product in the PINTE= parameter is recognized. When CAS9 is executed only the first product listed in the PINT= will get initialized. In this case CA Intertest BATCH . 

Cause

An SMP/e uermod was used to apply the changes to CAVHCONF but was coded it wrong. It was assembling okay with the PINT=(INTBAT,INTCICS,SYMCICS) but the ++JCLIN in SMPe was just re-linking the OLD CAVHCONF in CAVHAUTH which still has PINT=(INTBAT). The link step wasn't getting the output object module from the new assembly step.

Environment

Z/OS

Resolution

Point to the latest object deck  with the latest parameters and relink.
Another cause of the PINT=not working is as follows
If you reassemble the CAVHCONF parameter as PINT=INTBAT,INTCICS,SYMCICS with the brackets missing as showed you receive a clean assembly (zero return code) but when you run CAS9 to start v10 only the FIRST product will get initialized in this case CA Intertest BATCH . The correct syntax is with the brackets  PINT=(INTBAT,INTCICS,SYMCICS) . A fix will be written to address this.
