CA DADS Plus for CICS r4.0 requires an SVC in order to change the DFHRPL concatenation.
There are several versions of the SVC depending on what maintenance you have applied to your system.
How can I tell what version of the SVC I am using?


Starting with fix level RO31901 a new command "SVC" was added to CA DADS Plus for CICS.
This command displays the level of the SVC you are running on your system.

To use the command please do the following:

At a clear screen enter DADS and press enter

Then select


When the DFHRPL LIBRARIES REALLOCATION MENU screen appears enter the SVC command on the COMMAND line and press the ENTER key.

For example below.

APPLID A11IC4S6                 CA-DADS/PLUS  4.0         02/11/2014 13:49:33
