Cleanup

Issue/Introduction

Installing cleanup on 2 mainframes. One mainframes shares a RACF database between 9 LPARs. Three of those LPARs are in a different part of the network that currently is not capable of having software installed.
Does a cleanup database need to be created on each individual LPAR?
It is necessary to see the reference done on each LPAR.

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : Cleanup for Top Secret

Resolution

A DB, (database),  file may be shared across all 9 LPARS, but to know what individual LPAR accessed what, separate DBs must be used. Cleanup must run on each LPAR it tracks.  So if you cannot install/run Cleanup on the three remote systems then they cannot be tracked.
