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:
Fixes required on CA products to run with Datacom/AD V14.
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:
++HOLD(CCHB000) FMID(CCHB000) FIXCAT
RESOLVER(RO91331) DATE(16251) .
