Issue/Introduction

Question:

I need to download maintenance for all of my CA/IDMS FMIDs through your latest (RSU) level. 
Will you please point me to the procedure I need to follow to do so? 

Environment:  

z/OS

Answer: 

The link to the (CA RS) Procedures is: http://www.ca.com/mainframe-cars

CA Recommended Service (CA RS) is patterned after the IBM preventive maintenance model, Recommended Service Upgrade (RSU).

The CA RS levels will include all of the preventative maintenance available for your CA IDMS FMIDs as well as for all of your CA products.  

 

Please note: We strongly recommend using CA Chorus™ Software Manager (CA CSM) to install CA Recommended Service. If you use CA CSM to apply the CA RS the wizard will automatically include any prior CA RS levels that have not been installed.

**IMPORTANT NOTES **  

-  If you are not using CA CSM to install CA RS, please see: https://support.ca.com/phpdocs/0/8319/Using_CA_RS_without_CA_CSM.pdf 

The CA RS releases are not cumulative so if you are NOT using CA CSM to apply the CA RS then you will need to first install all of the prior CA RS levels up to most current CARSnnnn level you are installing. If you are using CA CSM to apply the CA RS then you can just select the desired CA RS level and CA CSM will automatically include all prior CA RS levels that have not yet been installed.
