Question:
I would like to pull the most current maintenance for CA Easytrieve 11.6.
Not sure how and what directory to use to pull it.
For ca DB2 tools, for example R19 release we use as follows:

//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 CA DB2 Tools. What you want is CARS1804 - with subsequent maintenance, or the CARSMINI Files have been updated to the CA RS 1805 Level and are ready for use. CA RS 1805 Contains all fixes published thru 04/30/2018 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:
DB2 Tools used what they call, a PTF Bucket, where all of their fixes are available through their CD.
For example cd /pub/db2hyper/D19/D19-PTFPKG/
