One of the following PTFs was installed which introduced new environment variables in hlq.CAW0OPTV(ESMENV)

  • CCS 14.1 - SO05223
  • CCS 15.0 - SO07047

The above mentioned PTFs upgrade the ESM Microservice from v1 to v2.

This new version contains new features that require Java classes from "ccsopjex.jar", which provide heartbeat information to OPSMVS utilities.

An updated ESMENV member includes variables for this .jar file.


Related variable:

ccsopjex_LOCATION=<USS directory where ccsopjex.jar is located>


CA Common Services 14.1 w/PTF SO05223

CA Common Services 15.0 w/PTF SO07047


Ensure the updated version on ESMENV is being used and that the following variables are accurately specified.

IRRRacf_LOCATION=<USS directory where IRRRacf.jar is located>  
ccsopjex_LOCATION=<USS directory where ccsopjex.jar is located>

export CLASSPATH="${IRRRacf_LOCATION}/IRRRacf.jar:${ccsopjex_LOCATION}/ccsopjex..jar"
