Error Message : N/A
Unable to install or update the MVS Agent as described in the documentation.
The UCX.MSL file for the MVS Agent contains invalid new line characters for MVS.
In previous versions the new line characters in this file for this Agent are "CR LF" (carriage return line feed - Windows encoding). However, in earlier 10 and 11 versions "LF" (Unix encoding) was used.
<Please see attached file for image>
Cause type: Defect Root Cause: Due to build issue. "LF" (Unix encoding), instead of "CR LF" (carriage return line feed – Windows encoding), were used for new line.

Workaround : Option 1: Use Automic FT to transfer the MSL file to the mainframe (it determines the line encoding automatically)Option 2: Use native FTP on a Unix/Linux box to transfer the MSL file to the mainframe.Option 3: Use a MSL file form a older SP, where the encoding is correctOption 4: Use a file editor to change the LF to CRLF (e.g. Notepad++ change from “\n” to “\r\n” in “Extended” Search Mode)
