latest maintenance applied, IOF Release 8D provides support for z/OS
V1R13 and all previous z/OS releases.
This means that you can upgrade your
IOF version prior to installing V1R13 and it will still generate
correctly for older z/OS releases.
8D is the only version of IOF that supports z/OS releases V1R11, V1R12
two ways to upgrade your IOF to the latest 8D maintenance level. You
can apply all the fixes in the latest cumulative fix file to your
current IOF 8D version, or you can re-install IOF using spin level
2011256 or later.
Applying the Cumulative Fix File
You can apply the
latest cumulative fix file and IOF will still generate correctly for
older versions of z/OS. Follow the directions on the web page below to
apply the latest cumulative fix file to your 8D version of IOF:
recommend applying all of the cumulative fixes, only the fixes below are
absolutely required for V1R13 support:
U8D2448 U8D2462 U8D2469
Spin Level 2011256
The IOF distribution MPI file is
periodically refreshed to a new spin level. A spin level consists of the
previous spin level with additional maintenance applied. Spin level
2011256 has all the cumulative fix maintenance available on September
13, 2011 applied. This includes the V1R13 maintenance.
The easiest way to install IOF
for V1R13 is to download the latest 8D MPI file (spin level 2011256).
Installing this MPI will have all available IOF maintenance pre-applied,
including the V1R13 maintenance.

To install the new MPI from an
existing 8D IOF or an earlier version of IOF:
IOF Option Menu
Option 2 (Install a new version of IOF)
Specify the MPI DSNAME
Option 2 (IOF has previously been installed at this
Your current IOF OPTIONS DSNAME will be displayed.
ENTER to select it.
Select a new IOF level. The next highest level is
displayed by default.
Confirm the IOF libraries attributes
Confirm IOF libraries data set names, or enter PROMPT to
Wait while IOF libraries are loaded
Confirm IOF OPTIONS data set copy
Browse the install $$TODO list and follow instructions
to generate IOF.
You will have to run the M10INIT
job in the IOF INSTALL library. M10INIT will generate the other IOF
installation jobs. Run the M13GEN job to generate IOF. You
can then run M32COPY to copy the new load modules to your linklib
library without making the new generation the default IOF. Test
the new version by executing the IOF8D exec from the IOF CLIST library.
This spin level of IOF 8D can be
generated for, and will run with any version of z/OS through V1R13.
Support for New z/OS Features
IOF 8D spin level 2011256 supports several new
z/OS features when running under z/OS V1R13 or when browsing a job that
was run under z/OS V1R13. These features include:
Imbedding in-stream input
datasets in a JES2 procedure
* New subparameters on the DD statement SPIN parameter
