UI32442 The new z/VSE SOAP support, that was introduced in z/VSE 5.2 and now supports literal encoding style, does not correctly handle complex copybooks with REDEFINES and OCCURS clauses. The result is that fields are mapped to a wrong location in the commarea. This affects z/VSE as SOAP server as well as z/VSE as SOAP client.
Required action: After applying this PTF you MUST also update the CICS2WS tool to version 2.7.0 (or later). You MUST then re-generate any existing RULES with the new CICS2WS tool version of 2.7.0 (or later), assemble them on z/VSE and perform a NEWCOPY on them in CICS. The z/VSE SOAP Engine will only accept RULES generated with a CICS2WS tool version of 2.7.0 (or later).
Note: Users of the 'old' SOAP support using generated PROXY code are not affected and do not need to update the CICS2WS version. However the new CICS2WS version will also work with the 'old' SOAP support.

UI32695 When updating, deleting or inserting a VSAM record using the VSAM-via-CICS service fails (e.g. due to a duplicate key error) then that VSAM file may become unusable for subsequent requests. This may affect other CICS programs accessing the VSAM file. It may also hinder the file from being closed in CICS via CEMT SET FILE CLOSED.

UI32467 The z/VSE SNMP Monitoring Agent returns incorrect CPU-time values when the system is running with CPU balancing active. Whenever the CPU balancing algorithm starts or stops CPUs the CPU-time value reported by the SNMP Monitoring Agent is incorrect.
