Question:

I am trying to RECEIVE CA ACF2 maintenance and get messages like:  

ROxxxxx  NOT  RECEIVED  PTF     NO APPLICABLE ++VER  

What is wrong?

Answer:

Every CA ACF2 fix (PTF) contains a ++VER that identifies the owning FMID of the element specified in the fix (PTF), along with additional information regarding prerequisites and/or superseding fixes.  

The message:  ROxxxxx NOT RECEIVED PTF NO APPLICABLE ++VER

produced during SMP/E RECEIVE processing means that the FMID specified in the ++VER statement within the PTF is not installed.  

 

If you do not need or want the this component FMID then you can ignore this message for this PTF as it is not applicable to your environment.  If you do need or want this component FMID then install the FMID.  After installing the FMID then rerun the SMP/E RECEIVE for the CA ACF2 maintenance and these PTFs will be received.

 

Note that this type of error and solution may be applicable to other CA mainframe products installed using SMP/E.
