Issue/Introduction

Upgrading from CA 7 Release 11.3 to 12.1. The JCL for CA 7 Release 11.3 makes reference to datasets which no longer necessary to include in the JCL for CA 7 Release 12.1. When upgrading from CA 7 Release 11.3 to 12.1 do we still use the same datasets in the JCL for CA 7 Release 12.1 that we are using in the JCL for CA 7 Release 11.3?.

These datasets are represented in release CA 7 11.3 and 12.1 by the following JCL DDNAMES:

UCC7LOGP, UCC7CMDS, UCC7STAT, UCC7CKPT, UCC7SCRQ, UCC7DQTQ, BROWSE, UCC7CMDS

Can these datasets from CA 7 11.3 be used or must these datasets for CA7 12.1 be completely new allocations of the datasets represented by the above DDNAMEs?

Environment

Release : 11.3

Component : CA-7

Resolution

Regarding datasets represented in release CA7 11.3 and 12.1 by the following JCL DDNAMES:UCC7LOGP, UCC7CMDS, UCC7STAT, UCC7CKPT, UCC7SCRQ, UCC7DQTQ, BROWSE, UCC7CMDS

Regarding these datasets on current 11.3 CA 7 Production System.

**Need to make sure you Quiesce processing on your current CA 7 System and let as many jobs as possible complete successfully so that the queues are as empty as possible.

**In CA 7, issue a /SWAP and let the LOGS log dump job execute successfully. This will keep your Reporting Data on the History Log dataset that can be used on CA 7 12.1 Environment.

**Keep UCC7STAT dataset as it will be used to copy to UCC7STAT 12.1 dataset so that you can keep all your Statistics.

**Issue /SHUTDOWN,Z5 (Specifies a combination of Z3 and DMPQ or issue /SHUTDOWN,DMPQ) to shut down the Release 11.3 system and create a DMPQ data set.

**That’s all that is required with these datasets on 11.3.

**Need to follow the online CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION CA 7 12.1 documentation, section…Convert Your Release 11.3 Database.

Regarding these datasets on new 12.1 CA 7 Production System.

**create all new datasets on 12.1

**Use IEBGENER to copy UCC7STAT sequential dataset from 11.3 to new 12.1 UCC7STAT sequential dataset so that you can keep all your Statistics.

**That’s all that is required with these datasets on 12.1.

**Need to follow the online CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION CA 7 12.1 documentation, section…Configure Your Product r11.3 to Version 12.1 to create CA Datacom/AD for new 12.1 release.

Regarding these datasets on Revert to CA7 Release 11.3 Environment.

**create all new 11.3 datasets.

**Use IEBGENER to copy UCC7STAT sequential dataset from 12.1 to 11.3 UCC7STAT sequential dataset so that you can keep all your Statistics that was created while on CA 7 12.1.

**That’s all that is required with these datasets on 11.3.

**Need to make sure you Quiesce processing and let as many jobs as possible complete successfully so that the queues are as empty as possible.

**Need to follow the online CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION CA 7 12.1 documentation, section… Revert to a Release 11.3 Environment to re-create the Vsam database for 11.3 release.
