Issue/Introduction

When upgrading SYSVIEW, job INST0050 (program GSVXCNVS) combines and converts security definitions stored in member CNM4BSEC for the new release.

Environment

Release : 17.0; 16.0

Cause

The question of whether the converted security file is downward-compatible with the older SYSVIEW release. This is important when upgrading SYSVIEW on one system at a time, resulting in an environment with "mixed releases".

Resolution

Security files generated by the program GSVXCNVS are not downward compatible; when running in a mixed-release environment. In these instances, we can specify different security files using options found within the System Config. Member:


In SYSVIEW, issue the STATUS command and search for "SYSTEM CONFIG"; you'll see two matches:

System Config Member
System Config Dsn   

Use these to identify the DSN and member name of your SYSVIEW configuration. Once inside the R17.0 member, add the following statement before the Logical End of File Statement:

)IF RELEASE=16.0 

Dsn-System-SECURITY

)ENDIF                                                                 
*. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .*
*        End Release Specific Options - 16.0                      *    
*. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .*

Be sure to save the member and recycle SYSVIEW on each system to implement the changes.
