Environment

CA Easytrieve Maintenance

Resolution

CA Easytrieve does not provide CD's like the example used in this KD. . What you want is the latest CARS maintenance - with subsequent maintenance. The CARSMINI Files have been updated to the CA RS 1810 Level and are ready for use. CA RS 1810 contains all fixes published thru 09/30/2018.
You can also download the Easytrieve maintenance through our Support Online, and built a CART to download the Easytrieve fixes as a .zip file.
 
 

Additional Information

Other products use what they call, a PTF Bucket, where all of their fixes are available through their CD.
For example cd /pub/db2hyper/D19/D19-PTFPKG/
