UI42165-52C WRONG CREATION DATE SHOWN IN VSAM DIALOG
The panel IESFILDETD on VSE/IUI shows wrong century in four digits for the year of the CREATION DATE, for example 2086261 appeared. The VSAM file was actually created on 1986 (not on 2086). The CREATION DATE should be shown as 1986261.

UI39873-52C APAR PM51052 was not retrofitted into z/VSE 5.2
PF9 on the signon screen (escape mixed) uses mixed case.
TRANIDONLY should be used.

During FSU stage 2 (IPL from SYSWK1) the job DTRFS28 might fail, when an external security manager is used instead of the BSM.
The statement
// EXEC BSTADMIN
gives RC=8 or RC=16, and the job abends.

UI27953-52C After filling out skeletons @DTRSEXIT should run. The macro @DTRSEXIT, however, cuts off lines which contain a < sign and are longer than 59 characters. Those lines have been split to avoid this problem. The descriptive text in SKOSACFG has been improved.

AFTER MIGRATION TO Z/VSE 5.2 EZY1293E INITAPI CALL FAILURE TRANSACTION = EZA1- ERRNO= 121 MAY OCCUR
When migrating to z/VSE 5.2, the previously created CICS Listener configuration file may include CICS object records with a TCPADDR value that is unequal to all blanks. Starting a CICS Listener will fail with message EZY1293E.

This is the new message:
EZY3996E  mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss
AN INVALID TCP/IP NAME WAS DETECTED:
TCPADDR=cccccccc. PARAMETER IGNORED.
Explanation: Your CICS Listener CICS Object has been defined with an invalid name cccccccc for the TCP/IP address space (TCPADDR). Valid names are SOCKETnn or nn where nn is the ID of the TCP/IP stack to connect to. nn must be in the range 00 to 99.

UI19157-52C SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH CSD SETUP AND BSM SETUP
  1. Skeleton SKCSDFC2 cannot run second time without error.
  2. BSM setup for XFCT yes will fail accessing IESCNTL and BSTCNTL.

UI18749-52C SKPTFILE MISSING IN IMVERUP
FSU version upgrade does not restore SKPTFILE member. CSD definition for IESSCCIC defined incorrectly with RELOAD=YES.
  1. SKPTFILE missing in IMVERUP so after FSU release/version upgrade, this part is missing. Can be restored separately using SKICFRST, part resides in ICCF library 59.
  2. SKREXXCI similar as above.
  3. IESSCCIC should be RELOAD(NO) you can modify the definition using CEDA.

UI17100-52C REENTRANT PARAMETER MISSING FOR C/VSE COMPILE SKELETON
REENT parameter missing in C compile skeleton for online programs. PTF file defined with wrong BLKSIZE During initial install and FSU version/release upgrade IJSYSPF file is defined with BLKSIZE 10320. This requires that FTP is done with appropriate BLKSIZE parameter. But old definition FIXBLK(80) is the better solution. Use skeleton SKPTFILE in ICCF 59 to redefine the file. Compile skeletons for CICS programs should generate reentrant code.
