Resolution

There is an extensive set of compatibility information available for Broadcom mainframe products, and this includes CICS release information. Below are the steps to find the information for your Broadcom product.

  1. Once you have logged in to the Broadcom Support webpage, click the link for the Compatibility Matrix in the Quick Links section of your Dashboard. This will lead you to the Mainframe Compatibilities page.
  2. Select the link for the category you want to review–in this case, select the CICS TS Compatibility link.
  3. On the CICS Transaction Server Compatibility Matrix page, you can search for whichever product you need. Enter the product name–DATACOM, for example–to review compatibility information for products containing that string.
  4. Scroll down through the filtered list to determine if your product and version is compatible with the desired CICS TS version and if any special maintenance is needed.
