Introduction: 

I added a new key on the fly by running DDUPDATE 1000 APPLYCXX on the -ADD KEY transaction.

Question: 

A DBUTLTY CXX report shows this new  key with status AD.

What does this mean?

Environment:  

z/OS    CA Datacom 15.1 

Answer: 

The possible values for KEY STATUS are : 

AD

AD signifies the key was added through an APPLYCXX but the process of populating the index which makes the key usable is not complete. 

DL

DL indicates that the key was deleted through an APPLYCXX but the process of removing the key from the index is not complete. 

LD

LD signifies that the key is loaded and ready for use. 

NL

NL signifies that the key is not loaded or available to the user.
