z/OS CA Datacom/AD Version 15.1 New Install/Upgrade
The installation/upgrade process for CA Datacom/AD 15.1 has been revised and improved. See the topics for performing active MUF upgrades.
For installations not using CA Chorus Software Manager and are installing through SMP/E SAMPJCL:
All the libraries that are generated and used during the installation process are defined as PDSE except for the CAAXLPA library, which must be defined as PDS.
  • If your site using CA Common Services component CAECIS (CA Examine Common Inventory Service, FMID CD0E350) then you will need to edit SAMPJCL member AAX00ALL to correct the allocation of CAAXLPA. Remove "DSNTYPE=LIBRARY," from the //CAAXLPA DD as follows:
//CAAXLPA DD DSN=PRODHLQ.CAAXLPA, // DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE), // DCB=(BLKSIZE=32760,RECFM=U), // VOLINFO, // SPACE=(TRK,(10,10,5)
  • CA Datacom/AD 15.1 SMP/E APPLY job SAMPJCL(AAX30APB) will fail with GIM30206E due to recent PTF ERROR HOLDs. This can occur when either a PTF in the base FMID is later found to be in error OR when a HIPER PTF that is not a correcting PTF is published.
To get past this situation with job AAX30APB and continue to complete the base installation, modify the SAMPJCL(AAX30APB) to use BYPASS(HOLDSYSTEM,HOLDERROR(reason-id1,reason-idn)) or use the more generic BYPASS(HOLDSYSTEM,HOLDERROR). The SMP/E base ACCEPT job AAX4ACC will also require the same BYPASS for HOLDERROR to be added. After completion of the install, it is imperative that you verify that all the resolving PTFs are applied prior to implementing the products in production. You should run a job similar to the following to identify the set of such resolving PTFs that are required.
//SMPE EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,REGION=4096K > //SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.CSI //SMPHOLD DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.HOLDDATA //SMPLOG DD DUMMY //SMPOUT DD SYSOUT=* //SMPRPT DD SYSOUT=* //SMPLIST DD SYSOUT=* //SMPSNAP DD SYSOUT=* //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //SMPPUNCH DD SYSOUT=* //SMPPTFIN DD DUMMY //SMPCNTL DD * SET BOUNDARY(GLOBAL). REPORT ERRSYSMODS ZONES(CAIT0,CAID0). /*
All published solutions for CA Datacom/AD 15.1 should be applied after the SMP/E install and before executing the configuration steps. Go to https://support.broadcom.com to download 15.1 solutions.
