Question:

 When we attempt to APPLY RO84342, we're getting the following error: 

 GIM23911E ** LINK-EDIT PROCESSING FOR SYSMOD RO84342 FAILED FOR MODULE ADSOCDAB IN LMOD ADSOBAT2 IN THE CAGJLOAD 
LIBRARY. THE RETURN CODE (08) EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE VALUE. 

And from SMP00002:

IEW2322I 1220 2 ORDER ADSOPTCH,ADSOCDRV,ADSOCEXC,ADSOCDAB,ADSOFPRO

IEW2322I 1220 6 ENTRY RUNBEP1 
IEW2322I 1220 7 INCLUDE SMPWRK3(ADSOCDAB) RO84342 SEQ # 0 
IEW2552E 4091 RECORD NUMBER 1 OF THE CURRENT OBJECT MODULE HAS AN INVALID LENGTH 

What is causing these errors?

Answer:

This problem occurs when there is extraneous data in dataset containing the PTF. The PTF dataset should be defined as Fixed, LRECL 80 and should be uploaded to the mainframe as binary, - no crlf - no ascii.

The RO84342 APAR should show .ESD in columns 1 to 4 and lines numbers in columns 73 to 80:
