Summary:

An SMP/e FIXCAT is a fix category HOLDDATA that can be used to associate a PTF to a category of software maintenance such as z/OS version, CICS/TS version, or other compatibility requirement.

CA has prepared FIXCATs for CA “Using” products of CA Datacom/AD Versions 14.0 and 15.0:

CA.Product.RequiredService.CA-Datacom/AD.V14

Fixes required on CA products to run with Datacom/AD V14.

CA.Product.RequiredService.CA-Datacom/AD.V15

Fixes required on CA products to run with Datacom/AD V15.

With these FIXCAT categories, CA products which use CA Datacom/AD can assign these fix categories when they have a PTF for their product that they determine is required for their use of CA Datacom/AD.

Here is an example of one of the FIXCATs in the HOLDDATA. This is a CA Scheduler Version 11.0 PTF needed for use with CA Datacom/AD Version 15.0:
