I would like to upgrade CA Roscoe ahead of the z/OS upgrade? Can I do it?


Environment

Release:
Component: ROSCOE

Resolution

You may apply CA Roscoe maintenance required for the z/OS upgrade before the actual upgrade. The ROSGBL and ROJES2XT can be prepared ahead of time, but cannot be put into production before the z/OS upgrade.

ROSGBL can be assembled and linked using a new name. Make sure you use the ROSGBL source that supports the new z/OS level. ROSGBL must be assembled and linked with the correct macro libraries for the new z/OS level.

The new name can be then be specified by the ROSCOE ROSGBL= parameter after you upgrade.

You can assemble the ROJES2XT now. ROJES2XT must be assembled and linked with the correct macro libraries for the new z/OS level. When you assemble it, the load module will be linkedited into the Roscoe load library.

When you are ready to move to the new z/OS level, you will have to copy ROJES2XT from the RO60LIN, the Roscoe load library, to a linklisted load library.


Additional Information

Note: The RO60LIB should not be linklisted.
