Issue/Introduction

Description:

CA CSM lets you select and install maintenance for your products according to FIXCAT.

Solution:

FIXCAT (fix category) associates a maintenance package to one or more categories of PTFs (for example, installation, function, z/OS version, or communication). FIXCAT data is provided in the same file as error HOLDDATA. FIXCAT HOLDDATA statements assign a maintenance package to a category. You select a category, and CA CSM determines and applies associated maintenance packages to the selected products installed in an SMP/E environment
