Customer is preparing a CICS upgrade from CTS 5.1 to CTS 5.2.
Note that the following is valid for other CTS upgrade.
I would like to know about any existing CA document explaining what needs to be done.
All is outlined in IPC APAR #RO69663 as mentioned in informational APAR #RI70732 , it delivers:
- New VPEHJE69 in load module format for CTS 5.2 (Linked during SMP/E APPLY)
- It updates CA IPC Profile and Transaction definitions and IPC program definitions via:
SAMP(VQ14CSD ) DISTLIB(AAVQSAMP) SYSLIB(CAVQSAMP).
So new CSD definitions will have to be incorporated into your CICS (asm/linked with CTS 5.2 libraries).
This will be enough for DQ, DD and Ideal to support CTS 5.2.
APAR #RI70732 can be seen here:
APAR #RO69663 can be seen here:
This Knowledge document does not talked about Transparency product like DL1/T or VSAM/T...Please consult CA Support if needed.
Standard customized macros like DQOPTLST, DDSYSTBL, SC00OPTS ...etc are CICS independent.
It can be seen in:
*.INSTJCL(BDCUSNEW) job Datacom.
or *.INSTJCL(ILCUS01) for Ideal,
or *.INSTJCL(VQCUS01) for IPC.
Only CICS module dependent is Dataquery module DQDECPR. (see BDCUSNEW).
DQDECPR contains command level CICS so module needs to be re-asm/linked with new CICS/TS libraries.
