Question:

Is there any impact to PDSMAN if we apply IBM OA48941 z/OS UNICODE service problem?

Answer:

PDSMAN does not use any of the z/OS UNICODE services mentioned in IBM APAR OA48941.

IBM OA48941:  Unicode Services, Conversion Information Service (CUNLINFO or CUN4LINF) fails when the create time contained in the UCCB has a value of D0000000 00000000 or greater. This timestamp represents a STCK value of 12/15/2015 13:24:57.238528. The source of this value is the Time of Day (TOD) clock of the system and is initialized in Unicode at IPL. If the system is IPL'd before this timestamp is reached when the UCCB is built then the problem will not occur. This problem occurs with Unicode Services, Conversion Information Services at z/OS 1.10 and higher.
