    Summary
    For clients running CA OPS/MVS release 12.3 under any z/OS release and are currently using the CICS Operation Facility (COF) interface, be aware that after installing and deploying PTFs RO85140 and RO85141, you might lose the COF functionality if an IPL is performed.

     

    Instructions:

    • To correct this before an IPL, install the PTF RO85909. Note, as documented in our z/OS Compatibility Matrix, for clients running CA OPS/MVS release 12.3 under z/OS 2.2 and the COF feature is installed, you need to install and deploy PTF RO85909 as soon as time permits.
    • If you are not planning to IPL your LPAR anytime soon, then:
        1. Obtain PTF RO85909.
        2. Install and deploy the updated OPCITDCN module, from PTF RO85909.
        3. Recycle the affected CICS region(s) as the updated module is loaded/executed when CICS starts.
