Issue/Introduction

Are CAICCI-PC V14 and V14.1 compatible with CA Common Services (CCS) V15?

Environment

Release : 15.0

Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS

Resolution

For CAICCI-PC V14 
- Please note that CCI-PC V14 has been unsupported since September 30, 2015.
- Although I cannot find any reported problems with this combination, we would not have certified it given CA Common Services did not go GA until January 2019

For CAICCI-PC V14.1 
- With CCS 15.0, we still deliver CAICCI-PC 14.1 so it is compatible. 

Additional Information

Also, the V15 install manual clearly states that when installing CAICCI-PC you should 'Remove any previous versions of CAICCI-PC from your computer.'
The 32- and 64 bits version at CCS rel 15.0 can be found in the CCS 15.0 CAW0OPTN library at members CCIPCS32 and CCIPCS64..
There is however also a new CCIPCS64 version for CCS 15.0... Please see PTF SO07681 

Upgrading to a new version of CAICCI-PC shouldn't be a large task.
