Question:

How do I download an older, but still supported, release of CA Mainframe Application Tuner (CA MAT)?

Answer:

There are a couple of procedures that provide the answer for this case.  First, how does one get to the HLQ.pax.z dataset for CA MAT 11.0.  Note that this procedure can work for any product and any release level:

1. From the CA Support Portal, click on "Download Management". 

2. Put "mainframe" in the search box, and select "Mainframe Application Tuner", OR, there is a Mainframe Application Tuner box showing 3 available downloads...click on the "3"... 

3. When you get results back, click on "Mainframe Application Tuner MVS". 

4. There is a "release" dropdown, pick that and choose "11.0". 

It should be the first thing on the results list.  Put that HLQ.pax.z dataset into your CART.

NEXT, how does one get that CART item up to the mainframe?

I was able to work out a process where one can create the pax dataset on an FTP directory, and run batch FTP to upload it to a mainframe dataset. 

For getting the pax dataset onto a FTP directory from the Download Manager: 

1. Make sure your Download Manager Preference is FTP 

2. If you have 'DVD10145222E.pax.Z' in your CART, click Download, or if not get a copy of it in a CART. 

3. Use Preferred FTP 

Host:  ftp://ftpdownloads.ca.com 

Username:  Anonymous 

Password:  your email address 

4. Click FTP via Browser. It will transfer the pax.z dataset into a directory similar to ftp://ftpdownloads.ca.com/105246/12362379 

NEXT, run the following batch FTP to get it from there onto the mainframe: 

//YOUR JOB CARD 

//SCRSTEP1 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14 

//DDNAME1 DD DSN=YOUR.PAX.Z, 

// UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,1),RLSE), 

// DISP=(MOD,DELETE,DELETE) 

//ALLOC1 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14 

//DDNAME1 DD DSN=YOUR.PAX.Z, 

// DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=256,BLKSIZE=27998),UNIT=SYSDA, 

// SPACE=(CYL,(300,50),RLSE),DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE) 

//FTPSTEP1 EXEC PGM=FTP,PARM='(EXIT=08' 

//SYSTCPD DD DSN=VTAM.TCPIP.TCPIP.DATA,DISP=SHR 

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 

//OUTPUT DD SYSOUT=* 

//INPUT DD *

NOTE that this procedure is customized for CA MAT 11.0, when there is also a CA MAT 12.0.  You can use this procedure for any CA product that has two current releases.

ALSO NOTE that this is for using batch FTP JCL for creating a mainframe version of the HLQ.pax.z dataset.  If you desire to transfer the pax.z dataset to an USS directory you will need to not perform the last step, but follow the direction in the Install Guide.
