Question:

The client is upgrading CA Intertest batch and CA Symdump batch from release r 9.1 to release 10. Since both products have CAIRIM and linklist requirements can these two products releases at the same time on the same LPAR?

Environment:
Z/OS
Answer:

The development team confirmed that you can only start ONE of the product releases at a TIME on an LPAR in the RIMPARM member. When a site tests the r 10 products(Intertest CICS and Batch, Symdump CICS and Batch ) you CANNOT test on an LPAR where CA  Intertest batch and CA Symdump batch r 9.1 have been initialized under CAIRIM.  Only one runtime is allowed to be started on the LPAR and the corresponding load library must be added to the linklist.

Also, as per the Install Guide(See the Links below) an IPL is required when you are changing releases. Since the CAIRIM step loads modules into system storage an IPL is the only way to refresh the modules.

Please see the CA Intertest and Symdump version 10 documentation for further information.
