Issue/Introduction

Question: 

CA DATACOM/DB installation job DCM3CSI has numerous SMP/E DDDEFs for external datasets such as:

ADD DDDEF(CAVQLOAD)

ADD DDDEF(CAW0LINK)

ADD DDDEF(SDFHLOAD)

Do these DDDEFs need to be defined with real dataset names for the SMP/E APPLY?

Will they be updated by the APPLY operation?

 

Answer: 

The 3 files are required during the SMP/E APPLY so you do need to specify a real dataset name for these.

The files are not updated but we include modules from them during some of the linkedits during the APPLY. 

SDFHLOAD is the IBM CICS/TS target load library. 

CAW0LINK is the CA Common Services CAICICS target load library. 

CAVQLOAD is the CA IPC target load library.
