Description:

The CA Workload Restart Options for z/os Scheduler r11.0 upgrade instructions refer to job AL7ADUP - if I need to backout to CA 11 Release 3.0 how do I backout the changes made by this job?

Solution:

Due to changes in the database definitions for r11.0, when upgrading from CA 11 release 3.0 to the r11.0 release, AL7ADUP sampjcl libary member should be run to make obsolete the old definitions and establish the new ones.

The updates performed in job AL7ADUP are downward compatible with a CA11 3.0 system, therefore if there is a need to fall back to the 3.0 release, no backout process is required after AL7ADUP has been run.
