Component : CA MICS


One of the RMF PTFs included in the 14.2 upgrade is RMF7111.  
RMF7111 adds a new Summarization Key, SCSID, to the high volume HARDVA file.   
As part of the checklist for RMF7111 there is a step instructing to retrofit the database to populate HARDVA file new sort-seq var SCSID

To retrofit your database either:                
Submit the following job(s) from the PSP         
Supplemental Jobs panel (MWF;5;2;1;5):           
-- OR --                                         
Add a JOB statement, supply the sharedprefix and 
the unit identifier to the MICSDBx PROC, and     
submit the job(s).                               
Ensure that all steps complete with a condition  
code of zero.
