Since CA IDMS 17.0 several health checks have been added.

How to disable/permanently delete CA IDMS health checks from IBM's Health Checker?

 

Environment

Release:  All releases
Component: CA IDMS

Resolution

To Install the IBM Health Checker for z/OS

    1. Refer to the IBM documentation "Setting Up IBM Health Checker for z/OS" in the IBM Health Checker for z/OS User's Guide for more information.

    2. Install the CA Health Checker Common Service. Refer to RI05071 for more information.

    3. CA IDMS PTF RO12080 implements the Health Checker code for IDMS release 17.0, indicating that CA IDMS now exploits the IBM Health Checker Facility. Each Health Check issues its output as messages, which you can view using SDSF, the HZSPRINT utility, or a log stream that collects a history of check output.

    4. Ensure CA IDMS PTF RO48511: CHANGES TO HEALTH CHECKER DC024000 MESSAGE TEXT, (17.0) or RI48442 MESSAGES AND CODES UPDATES (18.0) have been applied to reflect the new DC024000 and DC024001-DC024007 Health Checker messages

To Permanently delete or temporarily disable the CA IDMS health checks 


These steps are also documented in the IBM Health Checker for z/OS User's Guide (SA22-7994-nn) and are not specific to CA IDMS.

    1. Add member SYS1.PARMLIB(HZSPRM00) with the following statement:

      ADDREPLACE POLICY STMT(DEL1) DELETE CHECK(CA_IDMS,*) DATE(yyyymmdd)

    2. In order to put the HZSPRMxx changes into effect, you either need to recycle the health checker address space or issue:

      F hzsproc,REPLACE,PARMLIB=(00)

      This will only stop new instances of the check being added.

    3. To delete any currently active checks, also issue command:

      F hzsproc,DELETE,CHECK=(CA_IDMS,*)"

Note: Certain system privileges are required to issue the Health Checker commands and to update the SYS1.PARMLIB members. See IBM Health Checker for z/OS User's Guide, 1.2.5 Create security definitions.
