This fix is superdeded by fix U7G2050
The "Not cataloged 2" message is not displayed in the IOF Job Summary Panel after fix U7G2032 (of U7G2018) has been applied. This fix should be applied whether or not U7G2032 or U7G2018 has previously been applied. It superceeds both previous fixes.

This fix is superceeded by U7G2039.

When a job contains JCL after the NULL JCL statement, and fix U7G2018 has been applied, the IOF Job Summary Panel displays the jobs input data sets in error. This can prevent the EDIT JOB line command from rebuilding an input job correctly. This fix should be installed if U7G2018 was previously installed, but can be installed without U7G2018.

Forked Unix address spaces generate multiple IEF142I messages in the system messages data set, causing IOF to incorrectly assign return codes to incorrect steps. With this fix applied, a separate line is shown in the IOF Job Summary for each forked address space.

24Apr2002
Modify the SLAMRUN and SLAMOPER clists to disable most indices when excessive indexing is detected. Excessive indexing is specified by the new CONDRATE parm on SLAMRUN and SLAMOPER. The default CONDRATE for SLAMRUN is 100 events per 2.5 minutes. The default CONDRATE for SLAMOPER is 200 events per 2.5 minutes. These defaults can be overidden by specifying a different CONDRATE value.

IOF Spin Levels

The IOF distribution MPI file is periodically refreshed to a newspin level. A spin level consists of the previous level withadditional maintenance applied. A spin level is identified bythe julian date on which it was built, so the higher the numberthe more maintenance that has been applied.

IOF fixes that are applied to a spin level are includedin the IOF UPDATES data set. They are marked as "applied" byuser "IOFSPIN". This allows the IOF maintenance dialog toaccurately display the status of all applied maintenance.

Use the IOF Maintenance Dialog to display the fix status or your system.

To determine your IOF spin level:

  • Enter "DVAR IOFSPIN" from any IOF panel
  • or look at IOF SOURCE data set member $$$LEVEL
