Question:

Lots of installations are using SYSPLEX. Is it safe to use CA Faver VSAM Data Protection in different nodes?

Answer:

SYSPLEX is supported by CA Faver VSAM Data Protection.

CA Faver VSAM Data Protection issues ENQ with a QNAME of SYSVSAM to synchronize with VSAM processing and with a SYSTEMS scope, therefore the LOCKS are propagated unless you exclude the files with GRS or MIME.
