Issue/Introduction

     
Issue:

I am logging in CA Chorus Manager 6.0 and I am applying some maintenance.

It was aborted because some PTFs were not found.
 
However those PTFs are well received in SMP but are in SMPPTS1 dataset.

It seems that SMPPTS1 spill dataset is not taken into account.

 

 

Environment:

CA CSM

z/OS

 


Resolution:

Currently no version of CSM / MSM supports the SMP/E spill data sets feature (for example: SMPPTS1).
There is some ongoing discussion of including this support within CSM as a future enhancement item.

The current solution for this concern is to manually re-allocate the SMPPTS to a much larger size and
copy all of the PTFs to the single SMPPTS dataset for CSM processing...

For example the following would be an option:
For now to complete the APPLY, allocate new SMPPTS and SMPPTS1 data sets with appropriate allocations
increasing the size where required, copy the current SMPPTS and SMPPTS1 contents into new SMPPTS
(SMPPTS1 dataset will be empty), then rename the new data sets to the normal SMPPTS, SMPPTS1 dataset names.
