CA VM:Secure for z/VM

Issue/Introduction

I am trying to run Chapter 16 Step 2 of the Upgrade In Place for the z/VM 7.1 install on my test system.

I followed the steps documented in https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-mainframe-software/traditional-management/ca-vm-secure-for-z-vm-with-security/3-2/administrators/upgrade-z-vm-in-place.html but when I ran the INSTUPGR STAGE1 (COMMIT I received an error. The $LOGFILE has this information.

I'm running VM:Secure 3.2 RSU-2001.


Cause

Did not have access to updated UPGDMIXT EXEC. 

Environment

Release : 3.2

Component : CA VM:Secure for z/VM

z/VM 7.1

Resolution

If you ran VMDEPLOY to ALTERNATE, and have VM:Secure with RSU-2001 running off ALTERNATE, the issue is that the updated UPGDMIXT EXEC would be on the VMSECURE ALTPUBLIC disk ... and not the default PUBLIC disk (referenced in the VMSERVER NAMES file entry for VMSECURE).

If this is the case, you can just deploy the VMSECURE "public" updates to the (PRIMARY) PUBLIC disk by issuing:

VMDEPLOY VMSECURE PUBLIC

This will only deploy the updated VM:Secure materials that go on the PUBLIC disk (the PRIMARY environment). All other VMSECURE PRIMARY disks will remain unchanged.
