You can display the current PDSE options with the operator command D SMS,OPTIONS. If your options are set as follows, you do not have any exposure to this problem but we recommend that you still apply the zap.
PDSE_BUFFER_BEYOND_CLOSE = NO PDSE1_BUFFER_BEYOND_CLOSE = NO
If either of these options is set to YES, and you run FASTCPK on volumes containing PDSEs, then you must upgrade COMPAKTOR or apply ZAP P-54.5600 before the next FASTCPK run. If there will be a delay, then you can change the options by specifying:
in PARMLIB member IGDSMSxx, and re-IPLing.
