Issue:

After upgrading to CA Panvalet V14.6, a 77 PAN-VALET line is being inserted into Working Storage of COBOL programs.  Why?

Environment:
z/OS
Cause:

In Panvalet V14.6 the Load Module Auditor Extended Feature was mistakenly distributed activated in the PANEXIT module. 

Panvalet Load Module Auditor inserts extra lines in COBOL Working Storage that start with: 77 PAN-VALET PICTURE X(24) VALUE.....

It also inserts a similar CSECT at the end of Assembler programs. 

 

Resolution:

Download and Apply PTF RO25651 from CA Support Online.

The Load Module Auditor is documented in Chapter 3: Extended Features of the CA Panvalet Extended Features Guide.
