You can install this release of your product and can continue to use an older release in another SMP/E environment. If you plan to continue to run a previous release, consider the following points:
  • When you install the product into an existing SMP/E environment, the new installation deletes previous releases in that environment.
  • If you acquired your product using SMP/E JCL, select different target and distribution zones for your new release from where your current release is installed. The new zones use different libraries than your current release.
