Question:

CA IDMS R19 Installation guide includes instructions to install CA IDMS Server R17 on client workstations. Since we already have CA IDMS Server R17 installed and were using it at IDMS R18, do we have to replace these ODBC and JDBC drivers with a more recent version which supports IDMS R19 or can we use the existing drivers? Do we have to install the CA IDMS Server R17 package (IDSERV17 in CAGJDATV library) which comes with CA IDMS R19.0?

Answer:http://d.adroll.com/cm/r/out

The CA IDMS R19 Installation guide includes instructions to install CA IDMS Server R17 on client workstations. In Chapter 6: SQL Web Connect, section “IDMS Server Installation”, it states that the latest release of IDMS Server package image(member IDSERV17 in the 19.0 Installation CAGJDATV library) should be downloaded to the PC to install the client portion of CA IDMS Server.

If you have already installed CA IDMS Server Release 17.0 on your PC workstations, there is no need to replace the IDMS Server R17.0 ODBVC/JDBC Drivers.
