What should I do to find easily the open SVC zaps to install on z/OS after a MVS upgrade?
- The first step is to run the following JCL against your new z/OS system LPALIB:
//DUMPT EXEC PGM=AMASPZAP
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.NEW.LPALIB
DUMPT IFG0194A IFG0194E
DUMPT IGC0001I IFG0196W
DUMPT IGGDADSM IGGDAU01
DUMPT IGC00020 IFG0201R
The CSECT level information is needed to determine the corresponding hook in the next step.
- The second step is to connect on the CA support web site and use the following link to determine which hook is required for you to use as zap for MVS:
- The third step, if you do not find the corresponding MVS module level, is to open a Case and provide as documentation the result of the DUMPT job created by the step one. We will create the missing hook to permit your upgrading.
As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA Disk if you have further questions or need assistance.
