Question:

How can someone verify which components in the CA IDMS product family are installed? 

Answer:

The products that have been installed for IDMS can be identified by using SMP/E. SMP/E keeps a record of everything that has been installed. From the SMP/E reports, FMIDs will be displayed. Interpreting the FMIDs will reveal the installed products.

SMP/E keeps a record of everything that has been installed. All the SMP/E information is kept in the CSI, a VSAM dataset; to access the information, you need to know the name of this CSI dataset. Software products are known to SMP/E as FMIDs. One product may be installed as multiple FMIDs, but each FMID belongs to only one licensed product. By requesting a list of the installed FMIDs, you can identify the products which have been installed. This list can be requested via the online SMP/E access, or by running a batch job. To get a batch report that shows only the FMIDs, using the following JCL:

    //SMPGO    EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,REGION=4096K,PARM='DATE=U'

//SMPCSI DD DISP=OLD,DSN=name.of.your.csi //SMPCNTL DD * SET BOUNDARY(IDMSTGT). LIST SYSMOD FUNCTION. /*

To create an online report using online SMP/E access, follow these basic steps, as demonstrated in the accompanying screen prints:

  1. Pull up the SMP/E main menu. The mechanism for this is site-specific; many sites can access this by choosing option "S" (SMP/E) from the ISPSTART "Primary Options Menu" from TSO / ISPF.

  2. On the SMP/E main menu, enter the name of the SMPCSI dataset that you want to query, and select option "3" to choose "Query" for the dataset.



  3. This will take you to the "Query Selection Menu". Specify option "1" for a "CSI Query".



  4. This will take you to a "CSI Query" screen. Specify "IDMSTGT" or your local name for the "Zone Name", "SYSMOD" for the "Entry Type", and "Entry Name" should be left blank. Hit Enter.



  5. You should see a list of the SYSMODs installed, which will include APARs, Usermods, and FMIDs for installed products.



  6. Determine which SYSMODs are FMIDs. FMIDs will begin with the letter "C", followed by a 2-digit code that corresponds to the product. Some Usermods may also begin with the letter "C', so those should be ignored, along with any SYSMODs that do not begin with "C".

Interpreting an FMID

Once you have the list of FMIDs, from either a batch or online report, then you will need to translate the FMID names into the product names. FMIDs will begin with the letter "C", followed by a 2-digit code that corresponds to the product; this 2-digit code comes from the 2 nd and 3 rd letters of the FMID. To map the 2-digit code to the products they represent, use the following chart:

Note: FMIDs CFEG000, CFEG005 and CFEG006 all indicate CA ADS. (CFEG005 is for mixed case sites and CFEG006 is for uppercase only sites.) CFEG002, CFEG008 and CFEG009 all indicate ASF; CFEG008 and CFEG009 are for mixed case and uppercase, respectively .

* These products valid only for R15.0 and prior.

The fourth and fifth letters in the FMID tell the release. The G0 in all the examples in the preceding paragraph represents r16.0; the FMIDs would contain H0 in these places for r17.0, and F0 for R15.0.
