MICS Resource Management

Issue/Introduction

We are planning an upgrade of CA MICS from 14.2 to 14.3 and are concerned with JCL changes.

In the checklist that is produced during the "apply" process the following note is present: 

All or some of the CA MICS operational jobs may have changed for this unit.  This includes the following jobs in prefix.MICS.CNTL:

            
            AUDIT, BACKUP, BACKUPM, DAILY, DAILYRPT,          
            DAYSMFR, EXCFULL, HISTM, HISTW,                   
            INCRccc, MONTHLY, MONTHRPT,                       
            RESTORE, SCHEDULE, WEEKLY,                        
            WEEKRPT, YEARACT, YEARLY          

 

 

Can you explain the exact changes that will be introduced during the upgrade?  

Environment

Release : 14.3

Resolution

The checklist does list the changes that will be made to the JCL.    See Step 29.

For example:

FILE RMF HARCFM 01 10 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF HARCFN 01 10 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF HARTGC 01 10 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF WLMTGP 01 10 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF HARSLS 01 33 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF HAR_RA 01 33 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF HAR_RK 01 33 09 06 00 00 053 024
FILE RMF HAR_RP 01 33 09 06 00 00 053 024

 

These are all new files and when we deliver new files they are turned "ON" in history weeks and months timespans (053 and 024) by default.

So, all of the files you see above would need to be added to your WEEKLY/HISTW and MONTHLY/HISTM jobs.

After you run step 31 (UNITGEN), this automatically submits the UNITGEN1 job which will regenerate the WEEKLY/HISTW and MONTHLY/HISTM.   The newly generated JCL gets placed in the 'prefix.CNTL' dataset.   You can then compare this JCL with what you have in your job scheduler to find the differences and then implement in the scheduler JCL. 

If you do not want to have to make any JCL changes, then back on step 29 above you can set the 053 + 024's to zeros 000 + 000 for each new file listed above in prefix.PARMS(DBMODEL) before moving on to next steps.  This way you will not need to make any JCL changes.
