Note for users of RLS for CA Endevor inventory data sets; a scenario of data loss in the Package File has been reported, if CA_RECLAIM (VSAM Control Area reclaim) was active on the data set.

This occurred during concurrent definition and inspection of large packages.

The CA Endevor symptoms included a  U0321 Abend  and the message PKMR006E.

The problem was resolved by applying recently published  (Nov/Dec 2014) IBM DFSMS hiper maintenance.  Please contact IBM for applicable RLS/VSAM related PTF's for your environment if you are a RLS user and if CA_RECLAIM is active.
