Issue/Introduction

Question:
 
We have multiple CA products that run CA Datacom/AD 14.0.
 
My questions are:
1. Can we have multiple entries for version 14.0 in CAIRIM?
2. Does each CA product that uses Datacom require an entry? 
 
Example: 
 
CA product with hlq1
  PRODUCT(CA DATACOM) VERSION(BD14) INIT(DBCR4PR)            -     
  LOADLIB(hlq1.DATACOM.CAILIB)                      -     
  PARM(PC=PROD,PCC=DBPCCPR)                                        
  PRODUCT(CA DATACOM) VERSION(BD14) INIT(DBCR4PR)            -     
  LOADLIB(hlq1.DATACOM.CAILIB)                      -     
  PARM(PC=PROD,PCS=DBPCSPR)    
 
Another CA product with hlq2          
  PRODUCT(CA DATACOM) VERSION(BD14) INIT(DBCR4PR)                       - 
  LOADLIB(hlq2.CAAXLOAD)                                            - 
  PARM(PC=PROD,PCC=DBPCCPR)                                               
  PRODUCT(CA DATACOM) VERSION(BD14) INIT(DBCR4PR)                       - 
  LOADLIB(hlq2.CAAXLOAD)                                            - 
  PARM(PC=PROD,PCS=DBPCSPR)        
 
Answer:
 
1. It is not necessary to have multiple CAIRIM entries. Assuming the CAIRIM entries for DBPCCPR and DBPCSPR are duplicated for the same module and version 14.0 then the last one will take. 
 
The JESLOG for z/OS will show each one that is processed by CAIRIM for your confirmation. Here are same example messages from the CAS9 execution:
 
   DB90150I - DATACOM DBCR4PR  2011/03/18-1055 14.0         
   DB90154I - DATACOM DBPCCPR  2013/10/18-1443 14.0 RO63772 
   DB90151I - DATACOM INITIALIZATION SUCCESSFUL             
   CAS9130I - MODULE DBCR4PR  COMPLETE, RC=00               
   DB90150I - DATACOM DBCR4PR  2011/03/18-1055 14.0         
   DB90154I - DATACOM DBPCSPR  2013/04/19-1254 14.0 RO56818 
   DB90151I - DATACOM INITIALIZATION SUCCESSFUL             
   CAS9130I - MODULE DBCR4PR  COMPLETE, RC=00  
             
2. No, only one CAIRIM set of entries is necessary per Datacom release regardless of the CA products that use Datacom.
