Introduction:
A question about installing new CA OPS/MVS Software in a SYSPLEX system environment.
Question:
We are planning to implement OPS/MVS 12.2 in the near future. We run 3 sysplexes each containing 2 systems. For each sysplex does CA recommend implementing the new release on one system at a time or both at the same time?
Environment:
CA OPS/MVS release 12.2
Answer:
Clients running CA OPS/MVS on systems, running over multiple sysplex configurations, can upgrade to a newer releases in any order that is more convenient for them. The only component that is common across all the systems will be communications via MSF Links. This component has no issues while communicating across systems running under multiple sysplexes at different releases.
