Introduction:

After upgrading to CA DATACOM/AD 14.0 from 12.0, and the conversion jobs appeared to have run OK,  I am getting an error when starting the Multi-User.

.....

EXPAND 8K,2 

*-ASRERISK POINTS NEAR ERROR

OPTION IS OBSOLETE AND IGNORED

....

Question:

Is this EXPAND parameter needed in the new release?

Environment:

Z/os, CA Datacom/AD 12.0 upgrading to 14.0

Answer:

EXPAND start-up parameter has been removed in 14.0.

The EXPAND option has been removed from the MUF start-up and if specified, displays an ignored message.
