CA Datacom/AD was installed but the Datacom Multi-User (MUF) startup shows this informational message showing Datacom/DB:
DB00215I - CA Datacom/DB Version 15.0
How to verify what Datacom product is in use?
Release : 15.0
Component : CA Datacom
CA Datacom®/DB for z/OS 15.0 effective December 31, 2020 March 21, 2021 only refers to the Datacom/DB product and not to Datacom/AD.
NOTE: The EOS date has been extended to March 21, 2021.
Fyi, CA Datacom/DB for z/OS Version 15.0 has been GA since Oct 2014 and version 15.1 GA Feb 2016.
The Datacom family of products "CA Datacom/CA Ideal/CA IPC Release and Support Lifecycle Dates" can be seen at
To see what MUFs that have started since last IPL, run batch DBUTLTY on each lpar with SYSIN:
You will see the list of MUF NAMEs, the "DC" showing "AD" (or "DB") along with other information.
For example, here is a snippet of a report run here showing two MUFs ... including an AD MUF and a DB MUF:
MUF NAME STATUS REL JOB NAME JOB ID CXX NAME DC ENBL-MDHMS ...
AD15MUF ENABLED 15.0 AD15MUF STC58376 AD15MUF AD 0104223228 ...
DBDVMF1 ENABLED 15.0 DBDVMF JOB57700 DBDVMF DB 0108114427 ...
To further see that your MUFs are CA Datacom/AD and not the fully licensed CA Datacom/DB product, you can see what databases are catalogued.
Run a DBUTLTY job on each MUF with sysin:
That report will list all of the database areas in that MUF. You should only see the system databases and perhaps some demo bases (1 and/or 10) and then only your CA Using products database(s).
Here are a few examples using product databases: ENF uses base 700; CA Jobtrac uses base 161 and perhaps 162; CA-11 uses base 601.
Also, notice "DATACOM/AD" in that report in the title on the left hand side:
DATACOM/AD DATA AREA SPACE UTILIZATION REPORT
And, the DB00215I is documented in CA DATACOM/AD 15 section "Enable the MUF and Identify DB Software Level"
"When the MUF becomes enabled, the DB00201I MULTI-USER ENABLED CXX=cxxname MUFNAME=mufname message displays on the console. The DB00215I CA-DATACOM/DB SYSTEM VERSION: v.r. message follows it...."
In addition, to check your product installation, check your SMP/e CSI. The presence of FMID CAAXF00 in your CSI gives one clue that this is definitely a Datacom/AD CSI since CAAXxxx is specific to Datacom/AD.
