If Vantage is upgraded from Release 12.6 to Release 14.0 with an IPL, is it still required to start with START=COLD?
Release : 14.0
Component : CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager
An IPL does not necessarily mean that Vantage is COLD started. This paramater is related to warmtartable objects. After an upgrade we recommend START=COLD, with or without an IPL, as precaution to prevent any compatibilty issues, that might exist with checkpoint data sets for warmstarable objects, that have been created with a previous release.
For details on warmstartable Objects see:
"Warmstart of Last Interval Objects"
"Configure Warmstart for Last Interval Objects"
