Overview

We try to keep the need to install PTFs to a minimum for Robot Monitor. Unfortunately, sometimes this need cannot be avoided if the APIs that we use have errors that require correction. The topic provides a brief explanation of which API or MI interface the PTF is fixing, whether it is a mandatory or an optional requirement, and the impact if not applied.

 

V7R2M0

SI52785, superseded by SI56826

Recommended

When Collection Services cycles, Management Central monitors using job data may fail with message MCH0601 sent to the associated QZRCSRVS job. See APAR SE57930 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

 

V7R1M0

MF48890, superseded by MF59685

Mandatory

A problem was noticed whilst running the Disk Collection routines. The underlying problem was caused by a deadlock situation between #MNCOL and #MNMATC, when a seize on a library was not being properly released. See APAR MA38790 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

SI52471, superseded by SI56900

Recommended

When Collection Services cycles, Management Central monitors using job data may fail with message MCH0601 sent to the associated QZRCSRVS job. See APAR SE57930 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

MF56844, superseded by MF59539

Optional

If you're using the Cache Battery monitoring feature the Telnet SSL may fail new secure connections. QTVTELNET shows message CPDBCA9. See APAR MA42715 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents an underlying OS problem.

 

V6R1M1

MF48670

Mandatory

A problem was noticed whilst running the Disk Collection routines. The underlying problem was caused by a deadlock situation between #MNCOL and #MNMATC, when a seize on a library was not being properly released. See APAR MA38790 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

MF56845, superseded by MF59538

Optional

If you're using the Cache Battery monitoring feature the Telnet SSL may fail new secure connections. QTVTELNET shows message CPDBCA9. See APAR MA42715 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents an underlying OS problem.

 

V6R1M0

MF48669

Mandatory

A problem was noticed whilst running the Disk Collection routines. The underlying problem was caused by a deadlock situation between #MNCOL and #MNMATC, when a seize on a library was not being properly released. See APAR MA38790 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

MF55269, superseded by MF59537

Optional

If you're using the Cache Battery monitoring feature the Telnet SSL may fail new secure connections. QTVTELNET shows message CPDBCA9. See APAR MA41895 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents an underlying OS problem.

 

V5R4M5

MF41414

Mandatory

Large temporary storage growth was noticed on a couple of systems. The growth was linked to the use of DSPFD with the *MBRLIST option. See APAR MA34693 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents errant disk storage growth.

MF48668

Mandatory

A problem was noticed whilst running the Disk Collection routines. The underlying problem was caused by a deadlock situation between #MNCOL and #MNMATC, when a seize on a library was not being properly released. See APAR MA38790 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

MF56394

Optional

If you're using the Cache Battery monitoring feature the Telnet SSL may fail new secure connections. QTVTELNET shows message CPDBCA9. See APAR MA42467 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents an underlying OS problem.

 

V5R4M0

MF41413

Mandatory

Large temporary storage growth was noticed on a couple of systems. The growth was linked to the use of DSPFD with the *MBRLIST option. See APAR MA34693 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents errant disk storage growth.

MF48667

Mandatory

A problem was noticed whilst running the Disk Collection routines. The underlying problem was caused by a deadlock situation between #MNCOL and #MNMATC, when a seize on a library was not being properly released. See APAR MA38790 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF avoids a potential object deadlock problem.

MF56393

Optional

If you're using the Cache Battery monitoring feature the Telnet SSL may fail new secure connections. QTVTELNET shows message CPDBCA9. See APAR MA42467 for IBM’s explanation.

Impact: The PTF prevents an underlying OS problem.

SI27805

Optional

You only need to install this PTF if you're using the QTEMP monitoring feature.
