    ***NOTE*** This PTF corrects an ERROR hold on CASFC70                          
                                                                                    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                                           
    JARSSM 320                                                                     
    SMS constructs (STORCLAS, MGMTCLAS, and DATACLAS) that are coded in            
    a HISTORY file DD statement for a DUMP are ignored.                            
                                                                                    
    SYMPTOMS:                                                                      
    History files do not get allocated with the requested SMS                      
    attributes.                                                                    
                                                                                    
    IMPACT:                                                                        
    The impact depends on what the SMS storage, management, and data               
    classes are used for, and what SMS constructs are the defaults.                
    This problem could result in data loss if the history files get                
    assigned by default to a class that automatically gets deleted                 
    after a certain number of days.                                                
                                                                                    
    CIRCUMVENTION:                                                                 
    Code the desired SMS constructs in the PSTORC/ASTORC,                          
    PMGMTC/AMGMTC, and PDATAC/ADATAC OPTIONS, DUMPOPTIONS, or                      
    STREAMOPTIONS.

      ============================================================================= 
                                                                                    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                                           
    JARSSM 318                                                                     
    When DSNTYPE=LARGE is coded in an output history file DD statement             
    in DUMP JCL, but the PDSNLARGE / ADSNLARGE option for the                      
    configuration is not set to YES, CA SMF Director allocates the                 
    history file without the large format attribute.                               
                                                                                    
    SYMPTOMS:                                                                      
    If the history file requires more than 65,535 tracks on a single               
    volume, this can result in a SB37 ABEND.                                       
                                                                                    
    IMPACT:                                                                        
    The DUMP may need to be rerun.                                                 
                                                                                    
    CIRCUMVENTION:                                                                 
    Code the PDSNLARGE / ADSNLARGE option in the OPTIONS, DUMPOPTIONS,             
    or STREAMOPTIONS statement, and recompile the configuration.
