Description:

You want to know if CA MASTER is initialized properly on your z/OS LPAR,
You have the CAIMST00 member with START parameter but you are not sure that IPL was made after.

Solution:

In order for CAMASTER address space to start, you MUST have:

  1. The FMID CAMASTER installed:

    FMID CEI0E00 relates to CCS r14.0
    FMID CEI0E10 relates to CCS r14.1

  2. The CAW0LINK data set defined to the system LINKLIST.
  3. If running CCS r14.0 , the CAW0LPA data set needs to be defined to LPALSTxx.
  4. If running CCS r14.1 and z/OS 1.13 or higher, the CAW0LPA data set does not need to be defined to LPALSTxx.

With the above items satisfied, following an IPL you will have these messages when running CCS r14.0:


*CAMS100I CAMASTER INITIALIZATION IN PROGRESS
CAMS101I CAMASTER INITIALIZATION COMPLETE

With the above items satisfied, following an IPL you will have these messages when running CCS r14.1:


CCSI100I CCSALTSP - INITIALIZATION STARTED
*CAMS100I CAMASTER INITIALIZATION IN PROGRESS
CAMS101I CAMASTER INITIALIZATION COMPLETE CCSI101I CCSALTSP - INITIALIZATION COMPLETED

You can do a display command /D A,L if you want to see if a task called CAMASTER is listed.
You will not see it as a regular Started Task but the command should listed as active if it really started at IPL time.

More information regarding the CAMASTER address space can be found in the CA Common Services for z/OS Reference Guide.
