What are the steps to install additional FMIDs into a current CSI with several FMIDs installed for the Database Management Solutions for Db2 for z/OS.
To install additional FMIDs into a current CSI with several FMIDs installed for the Database Management Solutions for Db2 for z/OS keeping the
current SMP/E environment you have to run the following steps:
1. Start with the install SMP/E JCL Pax file (not the z/OSMF PSWI).
2. Expand the Pax file normally (ESDUNPAX job or pax -rvf command), as if you were going to do a full install using the native SMP/E JCL.
Go ahead and extract the SAMPJCL install JCL file and do the tailoring, again as if you are going to do a full base install (use your existing data set names).
3. Take a backup of your SMP/E environment (CSI, SMPxxx, Target, Distribution data sets).
Make sure all the data sets are recalled from archive before taking the backup. This is standard before doing any SMP/E work.
4. Receive the additional FMIDs using the SAMPJCL DBM20RCB job. Do not attempt to apply them yet.
5. Receive all published maintenance, such as by using RECEIVE ORDER.
6. Use Apply Check to install the additional FMIDs and published maintenance, for example for two additional FMIDs CxxxK00 and CyyyK00, the SMPE/E APPLY statement should be:
7. Review the hold data produced by the APPLY CHECK command, just like you would for any other time maintenance is installed.
8. Assuming the Apply Check ended with RC=00 and the hold data has been addressed, remove the CHECK keyword to do the apply.
The tricky part is coming current maintenance on FMIDs CxxxK00/CyyyK00 at the same time as installing FMIDs CxxxK00/CyyyK00.
Other maintenance already applied knows that if those FMIDs are present then certain fixes must also be installed.
SMP/E will not allow additional FMIDs to be installed without the requisite maintenance.
A new base install might be simpler. It is certainly simpler from strictly SMP/E's point of view, but all the post-install stuff may make it harder.
If doing a new base install, either the original install SMP/E JCL Pax file or the z/OSMF PSWI Pax file may be used.
In both cases published maintenance has to be applied after the base install.
