Issue/Introduction



​The client has to upgrade CA Intertest and Symdump CICS at their site to a supported release. Does the client have to upgrade both products at the same time in each CICS region or can the client upgrade Intertest CICS to a higher release level and then go back and upgrade Symdump CICS at a later time?

Environment

Z/OS
CICS

Resolution

Both products must be upgrade​d​ at the same time in the CICS region. Both products must be at the same release level. Intertest and Symdump CICS share common load modules. A mixed release​ level environment would cause problems.
