Question:
We are in the process of replacing our IBM mainframe with a new version. Will be installing z/OS 2.3. Any issues with TLMS at 12.6?
Environment:
z/OS 2.3 2.2 TLMS 12.6
Answer:
You will need the following PTF  for z/OS 2.2-2.3. 
 APAR #: RO83793 Product: TLMS Release: 12.6 Solution #: 38 Type: OS:
 Title: NEW INTERCEPT TABLE FOR Z/OS 2.2
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In z/OS 2.2 IBM has made the Tape Exit Point (TEP) exits dynamic. This also removed the place that TLMS was intercepting these exits. TLMS 12.6 must use another intercept point for z/OS 2.2.
SYMPTOMS: TLMS intercepts fail to apply during CAS9 processing............. CAG8258E VERIFICATION ERROR FOR INTERCEPT 0X??. CAG8299I APPLY TLMSOC1A COMPLETED. RC = 08 CAG8214E UNAPPLIED OSITABLE FOUND IN MEMORY. CATL039E SYSTEM INTERCEPTS NOT INSTALLED *
You can apply this PTF before you bring in the new CPU and OS.
