QO95165r12 SP1S0C4 ABEND IN VANSMSAC +115E WITH QO93003 APPLIED
When adding an SMS volume in simulate or live mode, a 0c4 abend in module VANSMSAC offset 115E occurs.

QO95193r12 SP1GETMAIN PROBLEMS WHEN VTSKEEP IS SET TO A HIGH VALUE When the sysparm VTSKEEP is set to a high value (>2) and a high volume of SMF records is generated for STK VSM objects, a GETMAIN error can occur. An internal memory usage limit (high water mark) will not stop memory consumption as intended.Memory abends after messages like:
VAN0590E: GETMAIN FAILED,
LEN= 10,595,652 SP=000
ID=OBJAPIBU

Memory is exhausted. SMF record handling is interrupted.Keep SMF record objects small. Set VTSKEEP to 0
QO95168r12 SP1S0C4 IN COMBINED GROUP SPACE OBJECT WITH QO93003 APPLIED
The creator program OBJCGCBN for the Combined Group Space object gets an 0C4 if two groups with the same name are defined in the GDEFS parmlib member.
Program OBJCGCBN gets an 0C4 abend when building the Combined Group Space object.The user cannot view the Combined Group Space.Use the Host Configuration Client or TSO to remove one of the duplicate groups. Do a new collect to rebuild the Primary, Secondary and Tape Groups.
QO95197r12 SP1CONMSG SCRIPTS NOT WORKING WITH QO93003 APPLIED The CONMSG scripts feature used in automated processing is missing messages.With WTOEMCS (Y) console messages are not delivered to CONMSG scripts.Console automation does not work.Use WTOTABSZ instead of WTOEMCS to collect console messages for script.
QO95239r12 SP1ZOOM LIST OBJECT MISSING ENTRIES WITH QO93003 APPLIED Diagnostic object is incompleteAbout 1800 zoom definitions for records beginning with O through Z are not shown when the CA Vantage Internal Management > Analysis Tools > Dictionary > Zoom List for Each Object is requestedThe Zoom List for Each Object is only for analysis, so entries missing from this object are not critical, but their absence is misleading.None
