Issue:
Attached is the current list of the maintenance applied to CA90. Please review this list as we prepare for our CA R12 upgrade, and please advise if we need additional maintenance.  
Environment:
Common Services r14.1 and  CA-7 r12.0 active in the same z/OS environment  
Cause:
Customer inquired if there is any additional maintenance required for Common Services r14.1 to prepare for an upgrade of Worload Automation  CA-7 Edition to r12.0 
Resolution:
Question was related to compatibility with CA-7 r12 based upon the current maintenance applied to Common Services r14.1 
  • Generally there are no compatibility problems between Common Services and other CA products.
  • The CA-7 Server for IDASH requires ENF to be active.  
  • Only possible maintenance that could be required is RO91550.
    • Prevents a SPINLOOP in the CA Health Check component if a CA product address space is cancelled.
    • Problem was first reported after cancelling CA-DB2 Tools Xmanager, part of IDASH 
  •  RO91550 is applied, no further maintenance necessary
Additional Information:
Details of the Common Services requirements for use CA-7 r12 can be found in the CA Workload Automation for CA-7 r12.0 Documentation Wiki
If needed, RO91550 can be downloaded from support.ca.com
