Question:
What is the correct directory to specify in order to pull down the most current maintenance for CA Easytrieve release 11.6?

An example we currently use is;

//FTP01    EXEC PGM=FTP,REGION=4096K,                                      
//         PARM='ftp.ca.com(TIMEOUT 600 EXIT=08'                           
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                     
//OUTPUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                                     
//INPUT    DD *

Please advise what is the CD (Change Directory) for CA Easytrieve 11.6.
Environment:
CA Easytrieve Maintenance
Answer:
CA Easytrieve does not provide CD's like the example used in this KD. . What you want is the latest CARS maintenance - with subsequent maintenance. The CARSMINI Files have been updated to the CA RS 1810 Level and are ready for use. CA RS 1810 contains all fixes published thru 09/30/2018.
You can also download the Easytrieve maintenance through our Support Online, and built a CART to download the Easytrieve fixes as a .zip file.
 
 
Additional Information:
Other products use what they call, a PTF Bucket, where all of their fixes are available through their CD.
For example cd /pub/db2hyper/D19/D19-PTFPKG/
