Are AW003ALU and AW006MKD jobs mandatory for Common Services 15.00 installation?  
 

Environment

Resolution

The AW003ALU job allocates the zFS directories for the USS based components (Only required if installing CFF6F00).  

The AW006MKD job allocates product USS Directories (Only required if installing CFF6F00). 

These jobs have to be run if CFF6F00 fmid is installed in Common Services 15.0 CSI.
