Issue/Introduction

The client is upgrading to View 12.2 from 11.6.

What needs to be done, to stop the collection of sysouts to a View database?

What are the instructions for falling back (reverting) to release 11.6?

 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA View

Resolution

Please consider the below for having no sysouts be collected by the View SARSTC task:

 . If there is use of CA Deliver, and there are Deliver RMOPARM ARCHn=DIRECT[/...] parameters in use, those ARCHn parameters need to be changed to send the sysout to the spool (ARCHn=class/dest/form/media/prmode).

 . If there are any View SARFSS tasks in use, stop those tasks by shutting down the virtual printers connected with those tasks.

 . In View, set SARINIT parameter FORM=9999 (or some bogus value).
 . Recycle SARSTC

 . With some or all of the above, there should then be no sysouts going to View.

Here are instructions to revert (fall back) to View 11.6:   

 Note: If your CA View database was not yet versioned above release level Release 11.6, skip steps 1 - 3.

1. Use the CA View Release 12.2 SARDBASE utility to set the version of your CA View database back to a CA View Release 11.6 database.
    The format of the VERSION control statement is: VERSION 11.6

2. Use the CA View Release 11.6 SARDBASE utility to OLOAD the Release 11.6 online panel library into your database.

3. Use the CA View Release 11.6 SARDBASE utility to BLOAD the Release 11.6 banner page library to your database.

4. If you modified any of the CA View user exits, revert to your Release 11.6 versions of the exits.

5. Change your JCL, Procs, and started task JCL to point to the Release 11.6 libraries.

6. If the Release 12.2 load library was link listed, revert to the Release 11.6 link listed library.

As well, the following PTFs should be applied to the 11.6 environment:

 . RO30477 - EBC 11.6 - Apply this to the 11.6 environment prior to the upgrade.

 . RO26210 - Deliver 11.6
 . RO28310 - View 11.6
 . RO48478 - View 11.6
 . RO48479 - DRAS 11.6 - Apply if CA DRAS is used.
 . RO63821 - View 11.6
