Issue/Introduction

We are planing to upgrade our System from z/OS 2.2 to z/OS 2.4. We are current running DevTest V10 agent. Could you confirm us, if we need to apply any maintenance, or to upgrade it to a new version. In order to make it compatible with the new z/OS 2.4, and to be ready in case we need to roll-back from z/OS 2.4 to z/OS 2.2. And also let us know the EOS of our current version.

Environment

Release : 10.0

Component : CA LISA Service Virtualization for Networks

Resolution

I see you are on Service Virtualization 10 (DevTest 10.0), which is no longer supported. Service Virtualization (DevTest) 10.0 reached EoS (End of Service) on 21-Dec-18. I recommend you consider upgrading to Service Visualization 10.5, just so you are up to date on the product release and are eligible for support. 

As for your question regrading the support of the CICS and LPAR agents running on  z/OS; currently the 10.5 agents only support up to z/OS 2.3.x. We don't support z/OS 2.4 at this time.
