I am install CA Symdump Batch r 10. When I initialize a new r 10 repository file the heading lists release R 9.1.

SymDump for CICS SymDump Batch


I am upgrading from CA Symdump Batch r 9.1 to r 10. As part of the upgrade I am creating a new r 10 repository file but the initialization program CAOUPRTU report shows r 9.1 in the heading. I have release r 9.1 in the linklist but in the initialization step I have a JCL STEPLIB pointing to release r 10. I would expect to see release 10 in the repository initialization report.




The heading you seeing in the output of the CAOUPRTU utility program comes from the  CA Symdump batch r 9.1 modules that are loaded in system storage and not from the STEPLIB. CA Symdump batch is usually started at IPL time using the CAS9 utility program CAIRIM. As part of starting CA Symdump batch modules are loaded into system storage. Since the LPAR in question currently has CA Symdump Batch r 9.1 currently initialized r 9.1 modules are in storage.


The release heading in the report is informational only. To properly test CA Symdump batch only one version of the product should be initialized on the LPAR. Please see the following link for details on initializing release 10. An IPL is also required when changing releases.
