Re: Latest CUME, Group, hyper install breaks QtmmSendMail?



fixed

I can imagine it's going to be quite a mess. It was one of this things
when we were talking to the IBM tech:

"Well, there is this PTF that isn't in the CUM that may fix it". Now,
that's double edge. First, it's great that so quickly we got an answer,
but not great that the "bug" was able to get into something that will
affect so much.

But this customer also needed to apply this to a few partitions (luckily
they were just development and not production). That's a hassle too.

Just another reason I try and tell my customers to use our MAILTOOL Plus
which bypasses IBM SMTP. Never been a big fan of that piece of work. :)

This was the fix that I had to apply for a problem with Intrusion Detection
on the IBM i. Intrusion Detection can send a notification email when a
potential event is found. After applying the CUME package, I stopped
receiving those email notifications.

Because Intrusion Detection uses QSYSARB to send the email messages, to
restart the job so it would use the PTF fix, I had to IPL the system.

This error had far reaching consequences.

Thanks for this info, Brad. I have downloaded SI53118 and will stage it
for apply the same time I apply the cume.

Well, this PTF fixed the problem. Whew... I hope this doesn't get
too
far into the population before the fix is included in the latest CUME.

That's exactly the PTF that IBM is suggesting now (talking with the
customer and IBM):

IBM advised 5770TC1 SI53118, maybe it can solve your problem too.

Emne: Latest CUME, Group, hyper install breaks QtmmSendMail?

Just had a customer that install the latest CUME, group and hyper
PTFs
on
V7R1 machine.

This appears to have broken the QtmmSendMail API. Here's the info
from
the
job log:

MCH3601 Escape 40 07/29/14 17:45:57.123654

The
name of the program to which the

is

was stopped at the high-level
language statement number(s) 0000000082 at the
time the message was sent.
If
more
than one statement number is shown, the
program is an optimized ILE
program.
Optimization does not allow a single
statement number to be
determined.
If *N is shown as a value, it means the
real value was not available.
Recovery . . . : See the low level messages
previously listed to locate
the
cause
of the exception. Correct any errors,
and then try the request
again.

The first part is the error, the second one is my application
catching
the
error. I've traced it from the line number to the call to the
QtmmSendMail
API.

Now, keep in mind this is running on many many machines, and this is
the
first one to have this issue. And it's after the install of the
latest
PTFs. This is running on machines from V4xxx to V7xxx without issue
(except
this machine of course). And has run for over 10 years. :)

Just wondering if anyone else has seen anything like this. My guess
is
it's
a boo boo on IBM's part, and I have a feeling that if it breaks
QtmmSendMail
it will be a huge deal for those applying the latest PTFs.

I'm going to have this customer move to using MAILTOOL Plus to
bypass
IBM's
SMTP server for now, but this is very discouraging.
