Solution:

The CA Mainframe Software Manager - MVS Software Status tab contains 2 sections that are affected by the Maintenance Novelty Interval

New Maintenance

This sections indicates how many HIPERs and maintenance items have been downloaded to the CA Mainframe Software Manager database - using the individual products 'Update Catalog Release' function- within the specified Maintenance Novelty Interval(1).

If no 'Update Catalog Release' was performed for any product, this value will not change within the specified 'Maintenance Novelty Interval'.
