This Knowledge Document provides information about SMP/E that relates to applying PDSMAN maintenance.
PDSMAN uses SMP/E HOLDDATA to prevent the application of fixes until the user confirms that they have read the associated HOLDDATA.
The HOLDDATA contains important information about applying, activating or using the fix.
PDSMAN uses the RESTART reason to indicate that the product must be restarted to properly activate the fix in the runtime environment.
So, if your apply fails with:
GIM30206E ** APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD RO23088.
HOLD REASON IDS WERE NOT RESOLVED.
GIM35906I PREREQUISITE SYSMOD RO22426 WAS HELD.
even when Apply is done with BYPASS:
APPLY PTFS GROUPEXTEND(NOAPARS NOUSERMODS)
FORFMID (CPDS770 /*CA PDSMAN PDS Library Management */)
BYPASS(HOLDSYS(ACTION AO DEP DOC) HOLDCLASS(ERREL)) CHECK.
How do we resolve ++HOLD ERROR issues?
