Question:
How can I find the CA Datacom Server mainframe solutions for USS? 
Environment:
z/OS
USS
Answer:
The CA Datacom Server USS solutions are published with the z/OS solutions.

NOTE: that we recommend that ALL CA Datacom Server mainframe solutions be applied which will include all the USS related solutions.

Here is one way to narrow down the solution search...

In Support.ca.com, after login, search for:  datacom server cadcjdbc.jar

The resulting URL will be…
https://support.ca.com/us/search.html?q=datacom%2520server%2520cadcjdbc.jar
Click on the Solutions tab to narrow the results. Review the results. Vary your search such as adding the cadcjdbc.jar version number such as 15.00.012 to be more specific.
 
Note that the resulting URLs for solutions with have “&os=OS&aparno=aparno” in the string. For example:
https://support.ca.com/us/download-center/solution-detail.html?docid=652417&os=OS&aparno=RO99840&actionID=5
 
As of this writing (June 2018), the latest CA Datacom Server 15.0 USS mainframe solution is PTF RO99840 providing cadcjdbc.jar   Driver Version: 15.00.012

Another way to download the USS solutions is to select CA Datacom Server (DBSRV) desired version from the "CA Datacom/CA Ideal/CA IPC Maintenance Grid for z/OS"
http://www.ca.com/us/support/ca-support-online/product-content/status/detailed-service-pack-info/ca-datacom-ca-ideal-ca-ipc-maintenance-grid-for-zos.aspx
Then, you will see the solutions from Download Center that have "USS" in the solution title.
Again, we recommend that ALL CA Datacom Server mainframe solutions be applied which will include all the USS related solutions.
