Download and Receive Maintenance
Maintenance and HOLDDATA is available at Broadcom Support. After you complete the maintenance process, the product is ready to deploy.
Use this procedure during product installation and for ongoing preventive maintenance in non-installation use cases according to your maintenance strategy.
Follow these steps:
  1. Select your download option:
    • Download maintenance using the CA SMP/E Internet Service Retrieval
      This option uses the IBM SMP/E RECEIVE ORDER command to download CA Mainframe product maintenance over the Internet, by securely submitting an order for PTFs and HOLDDATA to a remote CA server. This service eliminates the manual steps that are required to download maintenance from Broadcom Support. The orders are fulfilled based on the status of your SMP/E environments. Based on your order criteria, all PTFs and their requisites are downloaded automatically and received to your system.
      To use this download option, see Configure CA SMP/E Internet Service Retrieval. After your PTFs are downloaded and received, you are ready to Apply and Accept Maintenance (go to Step 15).
    • Download maintenance manually from Broadcom Support
      With this option, you manually select PTFs and build a package for all applicable PTFs and requisites. You then use the CAUNZIP utility to unpackage and receive the files. This utility processes ZIP packages directly on z/OS without the need for an intermediate platform, such as a Microsoft Windows workstation. The utility resides in
      yourCCSHLQ
      .CAW0JCL(CAUNZIP). To use this download option, you must be running CA Common Services Version 15.0. Review the CAUNZIP requirements and then go to Step 2.
  2. Log in to Broadcom Support and select
    Mainframe Software
    .
  3. Enter the PTF Solution ID or complete
    either
    of the following steps to search from the product page:
    • Enter the product name to display the product page. Select the
      SUPPORT
      tab, and then select
      Download
      .
    • Select
      Product Downloads
      , enter the product name or select the product from the list.
    Your product entry opens at the Product Download tab.
  4. Select
    Solution Download
    .
  5. Select the applicable software release.
    A list of published solutions is displayed.
  6. Select
    ADD ALL TO CART
    or locate the solution or solutions you want in the list and select
    Cart
    ,
    HTTP
    , or
    FTP
    (recommended).
    For more information about download methods and locations, see Downloading Products.
  7. Run the CAUNZIP utility.
    CAUNZIP unzips the package of published solutions and creates an SMPNTS file structure that the SMP/E RECEIVE FROMNTS command can process. After execution completes, the ZIPRPT data set contains the summary report. The summary report:
    • Summarizes the content of the product order ZIP file.
    • Details the content of each data set and the z/OS UNIX files produced.
    • Provides a sample job to receive the PTFs in your order.
  8. Review the sample job that is provided in the CAUNZIP output ZIPRPT file.
  9. Cut and paste the JCL into a data set.
  10. Specify your SMP/E CSI on the SMPCSI DD statement.
  11. Submit the job to receive the PTFs in your order.
  12. Verify that you have the values from the base installation in the
    <hlq>
    SEDIT macro, which you customized in the installation steps.
  13. Open the SAMPJCL member
    <hlq>
    7RECH in an edit session and execute the
    <hlq>
    SEDIT macro from the command line.
    Update
    <hlq>
