What prevents TYPE 14 and TYPE 15 records from being selected by TLMSCSMF is because IBM PTF OA51325 has not been applied. The reason the job didn't run correctly was due to the fix not being on in the first place so the SMF data that was being captured wasn’t tracking all the information CA TLMS needed.
The client will need to apply IBM PTF OA51325 in order for the SMF data to be in good condition and to be captured correctly when TLMSCSMF is run. T
Please Note: The IBM PTF OA51325 will only apply to new SMF data that is being produced and will not work retroactively for old SMF data.
