Issue:
We are upgrading from R15 to R18.

We are getting message from EXEC PGM=NDVRC1,PARM='BC1PXCNMVALIDATE',
CATALOG NAME ACSVS.ENDEVOR.R15SP0.ELMCATL................ DIFFERS FROM C1DEFLTS
CATALOG NAME ACSVS.ENDEVOR.R15SP0.ELMCATL................ DIFFERS FROM C1DEFLTS
CATALOG NAME ACSVS.ENDEVOR.R15SP0.ELMCATL................ DIFFERS FROM C1DEFLTS
CATALOG NAME ACSVS.ENDEVOR.R15SP0.ELMCATL................ DIFFERS FROM C1DEFLTS
CATALOG NAME ACSVS.ENDEVOR.R15SP0.ELMCATL................ DIFFERS FROM C1DEFLTS
CATALOG NAME ACSVS.ENDEVOR.R15SP0.ELMCATL................ DIFFERS FROM C1DEFLTS
CATALOG NAME, MUST RE-RUN IN UPDATE MODE TO FORCE STAGES TO NEW CATALOG NAME

Should we run this update? Will it impact production R15?
Resolution:
Here is how to change MCF and ELM catalog name:
- First of all, you need to do the name changes at a time when no-one is using Endevor.
- Duplicate to new name, using IDCAMS Repro or Rename all the files, using IDCAMS Alter,
- then update the names in C1DEFLTS and assemble and relink it,
- then run the BC1JXCNM job with UPDATE option (from iprfx.iqual.CSIQJCL)

In your case, you only need to run BC1JXCNM job with UPDATE.
