INNOVATION DATA PROCESSING ANNOUNCEMENTSIMPORTANT TECHNICAL BULLETIN FOR ALL FDR USERS
What is in this Technical Bulletin?
Innovation has discovered a problem that can cause VSAM data sets with certain unusual characteristics to be corrupted when they are restored, copied, or moved to a cylinder number higher than 32767. Although this is only possible when the output volume is a 3390-54, we urge all customers to apply the following ZAP as soon as possible. Please do not delay installing the ZAP because you have not installed any 3390-54's yet, because you may not remember when you do install them.
If you do have 3390-54 volumes and you suspect that you have been affected by this problem, please contact Innovation for instructions on identifying and repairing affected data sets.
This ZAP is included in V 5.4/62, which is now available. If you would prefer to install V 5.4/62, please fill out the form at:

NEW FEATURES AVAILABLE IN FDR V5.4 L62
Version 5.4 L62 is now available.
