Question:  

I made changes to the ACFFDR, did the LLA refresh, and ACF2 NEWMOD but the changes are not being picked up, what would cause this?

Answer:  

The modify ACF2 NEWMOD command will dynamically reload the ACFFDR form the LINKLIST, however if there are multiple copies the first ACFFDR module in the LINKLIST will be reloaded.

Sites can use TSO ISRDDN diagnostic utility to check to see if there are multiple copies of the ACFFDR in the linklist.

This can be done as follows from ISPF.

- Issue command TSO ISRDDN
- issue command LINKLIST
- Issue command MEMBER ACFFDR
- If you get a warning... Type YES to proceed . . prompt enter Yes

If there are multiple copies of the ACFFDR in the LINKLIST be sure that the desired changed ACFFDR is the first copy
in the order of LINKLIST libraries. Delete or move any older versions as needed.

Details on making changes to the ACFFDR and the modify ACF2 NEWMOD command can be found in the
CA ACF2™ for z/OS Systems Programmer Guide in Chapter 6: Special Usage Considerations section 'Assemble

and Link Edit the ACFFDR' and in Appendix C: Console Operator Commands Summary.
