Issue/Introduction

Question:

We have z/OS 2.1 and CA Common Services (CCS) Rel 14.1. We completed the Apply check of CA RS1512, but description of some PTFs provide the following steps to implement the PTF:

  1. Deploy CAW0LINK dataset.
  2. Refresh LLA.
  3. Issue the following console command:

- SETPROG LPA,ADD,MODNAME=CAMCRCVY,DSNAME=LNKLST,FIXED 

These modules are not new in LPA and so should they be updated instead of added? or do they need an IPL?

 

Answer:

Even though the modules were already dynamically added to LPA during the initial start of CAMASTER at IPL time, we only add new/updated modules to dynamic LPA and do not replace the existing modules. During this process the entry point that we maintain for the module(s) is updated to point to the new module. Replacing dynamic LPA modules is something which does not occur on a regular basis.

If there is no immediate need to implement the PTF in question, you may elect to wait for the next system IPL.
