Question:

Dataset TPV.CSARLOAD is distributed with the install of View/DRAS 12.2. 

Dataset TPV.CSARLOAD is also distributed with the install of CA Spool 12.0. 

 . Are these libraries the same? 

 . If maintenance is applied to View/DRAS 12.2, should that corresponding maintenance be applied to Spool 12.0 as well? 

 

Environment:
CA View - 12.0 and higher
Answer:

A member-by-member comparison of the View/DRAS TPV.CSARLOAD and Spool TPV.CSARLOAD libraries show them to be exactly the same. 

 

If View/DRAS and Spool are in separate SMPCSIs, then there is the need to apply the corresponding maintenance to both of the libraries. 

The reason for needing to do the maintenance to both (or other) libraries is because it would not be immediately known as to which library comes where in the linklist. 

It would need to be ensured that all affected libraries would contain their corresponding  maintenance, so that there is not the chance that any of the modules used would be back-leveled modules.
