Issue/Introduction

I am installing Release 15.0 on our systems. I displayed the Solution downloads for CCS 15.0 and got over 500 all the way back to 2006

Please send me all needed PTFs for Release 15.0 & all HOLDDATA for the Release. 

Cause

  • 500 + fixes due to including the LEGACY Maintenance
  • Unsure how to find any HOLDDATA  

  

Environment

Release : 15.0

Component : CCS390 - CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS

Resolution

  • Need to limit the maintenance to just that for r15.0
    • CCS r15.0 went GA in January 2019 
    • Use calendar to the right of the search box
    • Use date of 01/01/2019 
    • Will eliminate LEGACY maintenance  
  • Once date entered can
    • Download all listed maintenance into a zip file
    • Or before downloading
    • Scan thru maintenance
    • Skip any unneeded maintenance 
    • Download and unzip downloaded maintenance
    • Look for any HOLDDATA for maintenance
      • The fix and any holddata appears twice
        • Fix# itself as binary file
          • Fix#.BIN
        • HOLDDATA as text file
          • Fix.#.HOLDDATA.DTA.TXT
