      OS: OS           Group: ENDMVS FRM SUP 2                  
   Title: REMOVE LMP KEY CHECKS FOR ESI, PANVALET AND LIBRARIAN

EFFECTIVE: JUL 05 2016

For v18 and 18.1, no separate LMP key for ESI, or Librarian, or Panvalet Endevor interfaces is required.

Although it makes no difference to choose either CA-Endevor-MVS  or  CA-Endevor Plus MSU - MVS from CSM dropdown list to install Endevor product, It is recommanded to use CA-Endevor-MVS, as development team might do some cleanup work on CSM (to get rid of CA-Endevor Plus MSU-MVS from the dropdown list) in the near future.  

Additional Information

PTF list includes PTFs for other Endevor related product such as CA LDap Server, CA Compliance Manager.

Customer only need to apply Endevor PTFs under FMID00 (CSIQI00 for base Endevor) and FMID03 (CSIQI03 for Web Service), or/and FMID02 (Japanse Endevor).
