Thank you for finding the way to view the OA28727 APAR document.
I cannot now discover how I couldn't find it before. A "search" on the IBM web
site for OA28727 finds the following:
The V1R10 APAR - because OA28727 is mentioned as a "sysrouted to":
The second part of the V1R11 presentation, "z/OS 1.11: Migration - It's
The obvious way - duh! - was simply to "fix up" the URL on the same pattern
as for OA28332.
I checked the content of the two APAR descriptions: OA28332 and OA28727.
They are identical up to where the manual changes are described - and I
expect these are identical. They differ only in the "Reported Release", dates
and "sysrouted" lines in the "APAR Information" section at the end - as you
Another APAR relating to VTAM is mentioned in the first part of the V1R11
presentation under "This table is for coexistence and fallback service on z/OS
V1R10 for z/OS V1R11.", namely OA26490:
OA26490: PREPARATION FOR NEW FUNCTIONS
"Preparation for new function" is about all it says. Who knows what this is all
What is still a mystery is why there is no concern for Enterprise Extender
platforms other than z/OS. Surely HIS and SNASw might suffer from the
allocation of a session to an RTP pipe. I suppose IBM internal communication
could ensure that *current* levels of the other IBM Communications Servers
had the required capability - but what about customers with older releases?
Incidentally, I suggested before that the CP capabilities control vector may be
the way that the enhanced capability for allocating session to RTP pipes.
Thinking about it a little more it may be that another technique involving RTP
route setup flows will be needed given that RTP pipes can span many nodes.
I'm intrigued by this mysterious "new function" - which we now know can
attempt to cover a multitude of evils. It may be that there is some effort in
place to try to come up with a proper solution to this botched enhancement -
in the spirit of FASTPASS and RAMPUP to name but two - IIRC.

I've no idea why the difference in the uid= value with the URL you cite.

However the balance of evidence is that OA28727 is simply OA28332 for
V1R11 rather than V1R10.
