Issue:

Customer is receiving a return code 8 when applying RO95587, RO96371, and RO97512. 

  • RO95587 delivers an enhancement to CAIRIM known as the OPS/MVS Integration Service, a new common service that allows CA products to more easily integrate with OPS/MVS.
  • RO95587 is PE'd by RO97512 which corrects the HOLDDATA originally listed in RO95587.
  • RO95587 is also a prerequisite to RO96371 which delivers a second CAIRIM enhancement known as ESM Microservice to the USS File System.   

After coding and running the DDDEF JCL delivered in the HOLDDATA for RO95587, the SMP/E apply is failing with a return code 8 after issuing the following error messages:

 GIM69168E ** HFSCOPY PROCESSING TO THE CAW0ZFS1 LIBRARY FAILED FOR HFS ESMJAR IN SYSMOD RO96371. THE RETURN CODE (12)
              EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE VALUE. DATE 18.011 - TIME 11:03:20 - SEQUENCE NUMBER 000004.
GIM30216I    APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD RO96371. SYSTEM UTILITY PROCESSING FAILED FOR AN ELEMENT IN RO96371.

GIM69168E ** HFSCOPY PROCESSING TO THE CAW0ZFS1 LIBRARY FAILED FOR HFS CCSOPJEX IN SYSMOD RO97512. THE RETURN CODE (12)
              EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE VALUE. DATE 18.011 - TIME 11:03:21 - SEQUENCE NUMBER 000005.
GIM30216I    APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD RO97512. SYSTEM UTILITY PROCESSING FAILED FOR AN ELEMENT IN RO97512.
GIM30202E ** APPLY PROCESSING FAILED FOR SYSMOD RO95587. ALL SYSMODS THAT WOULD HAVE SUPERSEDED RO95587 HAVE FAILED.
GIM35942I    SYSMOD RO97512, WHICH WOULD HAVE SUPERSEDED SYSMOD RO95587, FAILED.
GIM20501I    APPLY PROCESSING IS COMPLETE. THE HIGHEST RETURN CODE WAS 08.

The job also issues the following BPX errors detailing the cause of the failures above:

BPXF150I MVS DATA SET WITH DDNAME SYSUT1 SUCCESSFULLY COPIED INTO BINARY HFS FILE /ifox/cai/ccsv141/CCS/uss/ESMJAR.

Environment:
z/OS 2.3 applying all maintenance to the CAIRIM and SERVCS components of Common Services for z/OS release 14.1.
Cause:

The DDDEF for CAW0ZFS1 was created incorrectly.  The sample JCL shipped with RO95587 sets a path name with a CA directory at the end. 
  /cai/CASoftware/CCS/uss/CA/

The DDDEF created by the customer was missing the "CA" at the end.  

That extra directory is very important, since the mount point of the file system as coded is /cai/CASoftware/CCS/uss. 

Without the "CA",  the target of the hard link will be outside of the mount point and cause the error.  

Resolution:

Code the DDDEF JCL as specified in the HOLDDATA of RO95587.

     /cai/CASoftware/CCS/uss/CA/ 

 

     

Additional Information:

The maintenance can be downloaded from CA Support Online:  

RO95587 - OPS/MVS Integration Service.  Review the HOLDDATA available for download.   PE'd by RO97512

RO96371 - Deliver ESM Microservice to USS File System. 

RO97512 - RO95587 Has incorrect HOLDDATA Category.  PE's RO95587
