Issue/Introduction

Description:

The installation of current releases of CA products may include Health Checks. Review of the CA product Release Notes may mention that the product is now integrated with the IBM Health Checker for z/OS through the CA Health Checker Common Service, and automatically includes some health checks.

The following questions may arise as a result...

  • Is the CA Health Checker Common Service different from CA Common Services For z/OS?

  • How is the CA Health Checker Common Service (HCKCCS) installed?

Solution:

The CA Health Checker Common Service is different from CA Common Services. CA Common Services in itself is not a single solution, but rather it is a collection of services used by various CA Products. The Health Checker Common Service is one of those services, which provides CA applications with a framework for invoking IBM Health Checker Health Check routines in a consistent and easy to implement manner. The CA Health Checker Common Service is a separate component with its own FMID. It will be included with new releases of CA Common Services.

Refer to PML RI05071 for instructions on how to install the CA Health Checker Common Service.
