This document details the compatibility zaps and steps required to make CA APAS Insight compatible with Natural v8.2.
The CA APAS Shared nucleus NTPRM module must be reassembled and linked using the Natural v8.2.x Source library to avoid problems with the Natural INPL utility.
To resolve S0C3 abends CA APAS Insight users receive when trying to do a PF5 SHOW, or Start, Display, Delete a request from Insight running in a Natural v8.2 environment, download Z51066 for APAS r5.1.0 or Z511010 for APAS r5.1.1 from the CA Support FTP server.
Apply the zap to the CA APAS NATINS Natural subroutine module.
After Z51066 / Z511010 has been applied to the NATINS module, relink the Natural v8.2 Shared nucleus (NATI060 job) to include the updated NATINS module and reassembled CA APAS Shared nucleus NTPRM from Step 1.
**NOTE** The NATINS zap is fully downward compatible with Natural v4.1 and v4.2. No special handling or separate NATINS modules are required after the zap has been applied to support the different versions of Natural. However, separate versions of the CA APAS Shared nucleus NTPRM must be maintained for Natural v4.x and v8.2.
Some CICS users experience S0C4 abends during CICS processing or get "NO IOCB/BB" in the NAT-MOD-ID field for CICS commands. A modified DBGLNCTS link routine module is available that resolves the problem of locating the Natural BB for Natural v8.2. Download Z51067 for APAS r5.1.0 or Z511015 for APAS r5.1.1 and the updated DBGLNCTS.txt module from the CA Support FTP server.
Apply the IMASPZAP to DBGNUC to set the Zap Map flag on
Assemble and link the DBGLNCTS routine using the ASMLNCTS JCL in the CA APAS Source library
Relink the Adabas CICSGBL module to include the modified DBGLNCTS module using the LNKLNCTS JCL in the CA APAS Source library
**NOTE** The modified DBGLNCTS is fully downward compatible with Natural v4.1 and v4.2.
