I am planning to upgrade my Datacom software from version 14.0 to 15.0. Since we only use one loadlib at the IPL time for all products, we can't have two versions of the PC modules in the same loadlib. Can I use the version 15.0 modules with my v14 systems?

Each version of the PC modules (DBPCCPR) is specific to that release. Therefore, they cannot be shared in a common CAS9/CAIRIM loadlib.
We also recommend that the input statements–which contain the LOADLIB() parameter, using the CAAXLOAD or CADBLOAD–not be changed here. This will allow both the 14.0 and 15.x process to load the correct version of the module.
A possible alternate process is to load the version 14.0 modules as normal through CAIRIM, and then have an automated or scheduled routine submit the AXRIM01/BDRIM01 job for version 15.0 to load those modules from the version 15.0 loadlib. Then, once every system has been upgraded to version 15.0, you can change the CAIRIM process to load the version 15.0 PC module, and disable the automated routine.
As always, please contact Broadcom support for Datacom if you have further questions.
