I have just been given a new license (LMP) key. What needs to be done to load this new LMP key? Is an IPL required?

Introduction:

There is no IPL requirement to load a new LMP key.

 

 

Background:
Passing the LMPKEYS option on the START command directs CAIRIM to read only the //KEYS DD statement. This procedure will prevent the //PARMLIB DD and //AUTOCMDS DD from being read and thus the statements contained within from being processed. 
Environment:
  • z/OS 2.x
  • Common Services 14.1
Instructions:
After updating the appropriate KEYS member that is referenced by the CAS9 procedure (which executes PGM=CAIRIM), issue command:

S CAS9,,,LMPKEYS

This allows CAS9 to run and read only the KEYS.
