CA RC Compare for DB2 for z/OS

Issue/Introduction

 

Do the following Post Install Task jobs need to be run when upgrading to a new release of Database Management Tools for DB2 for Z/OS?

RCM      LOAD AND CUSTOMIZE THE MODEL SERVICES TABLE

RCM      LOAD THE AUTOMAPPING MASK SERVICES TABLE

RCM      LOAD THE RULE SET TABLE

The Ruleset and Maskset are used in RC/Compare Strategies. Utility models are used in Compare and Migration Strategies. 

 

.

Environment

Release:
Component: RCM

Resolution

 

Model Services:  

Yes run this job. We recommend that an unchanged version of the @DEFAULT model be kept for every release with a SHARE OPTION N so it cannot be modified. This version can be compared to the previous release version to identify changes that have been made (See additional information).

Automapping Maskset:

Yes run this job.  We recommend that an @DEFAULT maskset be kept per release with a Share Option Y (only the creator can change).  Execute this task the first time you install CA RC/Compare with CA RC/Migrator on a DB2 subsystem. Be aware if the job is executed again on the same subsystem, it will overwrite any customizations that was made to the @DEFAULT maskset.

Ruleset:

Yes run this job. We recommend that an @DEFAULT ruleset be kept per release with a Share Option Y (only the creator can change).  Execute this task the first time you install CA RC/Migrator into a DB2 subsystem.  Be aware if this job is executed again on the same subsystem, it adds another @DEFAULT ruleset into the rule set table .  

 

There are times when maintenance will make changes to these models, then you will be directed to run the necessary task to pull in the updated version.
