Summary:

After the system was upgraded to z/OS 2.1 the SMFID found under column SYSTEM on the CA JMR panels for the newly collected JOBs is shown as garbage.

In the sample below, the JOB with JOBname TEST002C was run under z/OS 2.1:

CMD JOBNAME   JOBNO  DATE     TIME      SYSTEM  ERROR HIGHEST

    USERO02   10052  14/02/04 01:01:20  XE10            0000

    TESTO02C  10098  14/03/04 13:54:09  - S             0000   <=== Wrong value or garbage is found for the SMFID value

Instructions:

The cause of the problem is a format change for JES2 message HASP373 from z/OS 1.13 to z/OS 2.1.

To solve this you can:

- Apply APAR RO82407 or

- As a temporary workaround, the SYSIDOF offset in CA JMR may be changed to 81 which is the correct value for z/OS 2.1. This is done by updating parameter SYSIDOF with SYSIDOF=81 in the PK46OPTN parameter file for z/OS v2.1. If you are in a mixed environment with both z/OS 1.13 and 2.1, this will cause your 1.13 system values to be wrong.
