Question:
Are there IVPs (Installation Validation Procedures) to verify if CA View or CA Deliver installations and started tasks are working?
Environment:
CA View - All Releases
CA Deliver - All Releases
Answer:
CA View and CA Deliver do not have IVPs available, to validate their installations,because there could never be a generic, unique, pre-composed environment that could be guaranteed against any conflict with something else that might be in a client system. 

With that, the below is presented with a WARNING that the user of the procedures should be aware of what parameters and other settings are being used in any currently-existing systems, so that no parameters are set in a similar manner, which could possible cause conflicts. 

Here are recommended basic procedures that can be used for testing CA View:

 . Modify SARSTC task, with its own unique set of SARINIT parameters. 
 . Start the SARSTC task using "/S sarstc,OPT=STOPBU". 
 . Run a report job, matching SARINIT CLSL/DEST/FORM settings for sysout. 
 . Run a View backup using "/F sarstc,NEW". 

 . Modify a CLIST, for access to the database. 
 . Access the database. 
 . Navigate Primary and Sysout Selection List panels. 

Here are recommended basic procedures that can be used for testing CA Deliver:

 . Note: The below is done with the existence of a related CA View database. 

 . Modify RMOSTC task, with its own unique set of RMOPARMS parameters. 
 . Start the RMOSTC task using "/S rmostc". 

 . Modify a CLIST, for access to the database. 
 . Access the database. 
 . Navigate Primary panel for Job, Report, and Distribution ID panels. 
 . Define a Job, a Report (of that Job), and a Distribution ID 

 . Run 2 report jobs: 
 . . One, matching RMOPARMS JOBCLSL and SYSCLSL (pre-spool processing) 
 . . Two, matching RMOPARMS NETCLSL/NETDEST/NETFORM (post-spool processing) 

 . Look in CA View to see if the reports processed through Deliver are in the database. 

Note: The above are the basic functions of the products, as much of the rest of the products are utilities.
