how to determine what CA Common Services maintenance is missing.
When upgrading a Broadcom product or even CA Common Services and need to understand what fixes are installed and what fixes are required
Release : 15.0
Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS
Firstly to determine what CA Common Services maintenance is missing :
Please run the following JCL to determine what is already installed to then understand the 'gap' in maintenance:
//SMP EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,PARM='DATE=U',REGION=6M
//SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.CSI.DATSET.NAME
//SMPCNTL DD DDNAME=SYSIN
//SMPHOLD DD DUMMY
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SMPOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SMPLIST DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*
//SMPLOG DD DUMMY
//SMPRPT DD SYSOUT=*
//SMPWRK1 DD UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(10,5,250))
//SYSUT1 DD UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,1))
//SYSLIB DD DSN=SYS1.MACLIB,DISP=SHR
//PARMLIB DD DSN=SYS1.PARMLIB,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN DD *
SET BOUNDARY (CAITGT).
The SMPCSI DD statement needs to point to the SMP/E CSI you used to install CA Common Services
If this job returns RC=12 with a 'GIM50801S ** ZONE TZONE WAS NOT USED' msg then your target zone is not called CAITGT.
If so rerun the above JCL with the following SYSIN to determine your target zone name
//SYSIN DD *
SET BDY(GLOBAL) /* SET TO GLOBAL ZONE. */
LIST GLOBALZONE /* LIST GLOBALZONE ENTRY. */
Then rerun the first job again, replacing CAITGT with your target zone name.
Then run SMP/E RECEIVE / APPLY jobs to install any missing APARS
