ACTIVATED EKG CODE, GETTING CAS9182A messages
Question:
Getting expiration error after applying EKG key CAS9182A - WARNING: LMP KEY PROD (DT) EXPIRES IN 001 DAYS *** EKG key start date is 6/29/18: 29JUN18 EKG(76D955C9)
Environment:
z/OS
Answer:
CA DOES NOT stop the processing of any CA product. I want to make sure you have no concerns with the above, first. CAS9182A is just a warning more than anything else, but with an ekg code, you would not expect this product behavior. The EKG key will be honored. Only the activate of the EKG key is needed, by one of the methods, nothing else to pick it up by any products. Oonce an LMP KEY is introduced (CAS9 execution), they are there in CSA. so the CAS9182A messages are valid, the countdown is against the LMP KEY, not the EKG CODE. To get rid of these messages, there are 3 choices: 1. Obtain up to date new lmp keys, and execute CAS9 to refresh LMP. 2. add the CAS9182A to the MPFxx list of Z/OS to be suppressed (not recommended in any case) 3. Do IPL, with only the EKG CODE in the keys member. >>>> Last choice, I do not recomend this.
