CA Chorus Software Manager
CHORUS SOFTWARE MANAGER:MSM
I have installed CA Chorus Software Manager and I am trying to acquire, download and install a product using CA Chorus Software Manager. What are the steps to do this?
This example uses CA-CA Cleanup for ACF2 - MVS 12.0 SP00. The procedure is the same for all products. Login into CA CSM and go to the products tab. If there are no products listed under available products then you will need to click update Complete Product List. This acquires all the products for your sites that you would see in support.ca.com. After the Update Complete Product List task completes you should have the available products listed. You can locate the product to install by navigating under available products or searching on the product name.
After searching on the product name, cleanup, it is displayed. Clicking the + to the left of the release displays the service or genlevel SP00.
To download this product, right click on the release then click Update Product Release to start the download. This includes all install packages and maintenance for the product.
This starts the download task.
After this task completes, the maintenance will be listed off the release, that is, to display the maintenance, click the release, 12.0 in this example. To display the install packages, click the service level, SP00 in this example.
Once the task completes, click hide at the end of the panel then click SP00 to display the install packages. Click the actions button to the right of the package name then click install, Note that clicking delete will remove that install package from the software catalog but in can always be downloaded again with an Update Product Release.
After clicking install the base install wizard will be displayed. Click next.
This displays the features. The first option is always checked off by default and install all the FMID's for the product. The second option, Custom Installation will show you the components/FMID's. This product has only one. Click next.
There are no prerequisites, click next.
This gives you the option to create a new CSI which is the default. You could also select an already existing CSI from the list into which the product will be installed. All the CSI's on this list are in the user's working set. This will be explained later. Click next.
Enter a descriptive name for the CSI, then the HLQ for the CSI, optionally the catalog, the HLQ for the SMP/E datasets, SMS or non SMS. Click next.
Here you have a chance to override the allocation for each dataset. Click next.
If this install was being done in an existing CSI you would be given the option to create a new target zone or install into an existing target zone if this product was not already in this target zone. Click next.
A default target zone name is used and optionally you can check off create new CSI dataset to put this target zone in it's own VSAM dataset. Click next.
Optionally you can override the allocations for these datasets. For this product there are no input DDDEFs required. If input DDDEFs were required for a product they would be listed here. For example if this product required SYS1.MACLIB or AMODGEN the dataset names on the LPAR where CSM is running would have to be entered here.
If this install was being done in an existing CSI you would be given the option to create a new distribution zone or install into an existing distribution zone if this product was not already in this distribution zone. Click next.
A default distribution zone name is used and optionally you can check off create new CSI dataset to put this distribution zone in it's own VSAM dataset. Click next.
You can override the allocations for these datasets. Click Next.
This summarizes the install. Click next.
The install task is started, click hide after it completes. Notice that this is on the progress tab, not the general tab. If you would like to see the output, click Show Results which is grayed out below because the task is not yet complete. All these tasks will be available under the tasks tab. Under the tasks tab are two sub tabs. Current tasks and task history. If you click the progress tab while a task is executing like the one below, when it finishes to will go under task history, otherwise it goes under current tasks.
Next you can find the CSI that was created under the SMP/E environment tab. All the CSI's on this list that are checked off are in this users working set. These are the CSI's that were listed on the base install wizard as an option for installing this product. To add the new CSI to the working set, check it off and click Use as working set. Click the CSI name "CA Cleanup".
This shows options such as deployment and configuration. Click the maintenance tab.
This is where you can receive, apply and accept maintenance. This is recommended for maintenance over using the products tab. From the products tab maintenance can be applied to all CSI's in your working set.
