Question:

How to determine all of the ERROR HOLDs in the SMP/e environment after install of the product and/or its maintenance?

Environment:
z/OS SMP/e
Answer:

After completion of a product install or product maintenance, to determine all of the PTFs marked in ERROR and their resolving PTFs which need to be applied, run a job similar to the following to identify the set of such resolving PTFs.

Generate an exception SYSMOD report for your SMP/E environment using the REPORT ERRSYSMODS ZONE(zonelist). The zonelist shown here are the standard target (CAIT0) and distribution (CAID0) zones for CA products:

        //SMPE   EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,REGION=0M
  //SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.CSI
  //SMPHOLD DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.HOLDDATA
  //SMPLOG DD DUMMY
  //SMPOUT DD SYSOUT=*
  //SMPRPT DD SYSOUT=*
  //SMPLIST DD SYSOUT=*
  //SMPSNAP DD SYSOUT=*
  //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
  //SMPPUNCH DD SYSOUT=*
  //SMPPTFIN DD DUMMY
  //SMPCNTL DD *
  SET BOUNDARY(GLOBAL).
  REPORT ERRSYSMODS ZONES(CAIT0,CAID0).
