IBM PTF UA75973 (available 3/03/2015) is needed to prevent an abend in JSF purge job JSFDPURG in z/OS 2.1, if JSF job history file is a PDSE.

UA75973 prevents multiple S0C4, S0E0 and one SC03 abend when a JSF job history PDSE is closed by job JSFDPURG in z/OS 2.1.

Note these abends do not occur in the other JSF purge job (JSFDPRG2), nor in z/OS 1.13 or below, nor in z/OS 2.1 in job JSFDPURG if JSF job history file is a PDS.

(The associated IBM APAR OA46686 has more information on z/OS 2.1 PDSE abend.)
