IOF
Release 8E
Cumulative
Fixes 

Last updated: Monday, 23-May-2016 16:34:43 EDT

IOF 8E fixes can be downloaded as a composite cumulative fix file in terse format. All IOF/TSO and IOF/CICS fixes are packaged together in a single file. The IOF maintenance dialog will "receive" and "apply" fixes from the cumulative fix file.

The current IOF spin level is 2015275.  It may be easier to download and install a new copy of the IOF 8E MPI file than to apply maintenance.

IOF Spin Levels

The IOF distribution MPI file is periodically refreshed to a new spin level. A spin level consists of the previous level with additional maintenance applied. A spin level is identified by the julian date on which it was built, so the higher the number the more maintenance that has been applied.

IOF fixes that are applied to a spin level are included in the IOF UPDATES data set. They are marked as "applied" by user "IOFSPIN". This allows the IOF maintenance dialog to accurately display the status of all applied maintenance.

Use the IOF Maintenance Dialog to display the fix status or your system.

To determine your IOF spin level:

  • Enter "DVAR IOFSPIN" from any IOF panel
  • or look at IOF SOURCE data set member $$$LEVEL
