Issue/Introduction

When applying maintenance to CA Ideal modules beginning with SC00, it may be desired to refresh the copy of the load module while the CICS region is running, rather than waiting for a planned recycle.

This article will explain the best way to check if the module can be refreshed dynamically, and how to do it.

Currently, this applies to these modules in Version 15.1 and this list could change for future releases.

Environment

Component : CA IDEAL

Resolution

Once you have it applied and the load module put into the CICS loadlib, you can then check if you can Newcopy it.

If you issue this command:

CEMT I PROG(xxxxxxxx) RESIDENCY(NONRESIDENT) 

where 'xxxxxxxx' is the module being maintained, you will either get a "Not Found" result - which means the module is defined as resident, and can only be refreshed through a CICS recycle, or you will get the normal display showing language, length, execution key, etc. If the use count is zero - Use(0000000000), you can then issue the command

CEMT S PROG(xxxxxxxx) NEWCOPY or
CEMT S PROG(xxxxxxxx) PHASEIN

to refresh the module.
