You can configure CA CSM to download automatically the available HOLDDATA that it uses for each maintenance installation. Doing so will help ensure that you have up-to-date information about what maintenance packages are marked as PE (PTF in Error).


To "Configure Automatic HOLDDATA Download"

Follow these steps:

  1. Click the "Settings tab", and under "System Settings", select "Software Catalog".
  2. In the "HOLDDATA Settings", select the "Enable Automatic Updates" check box.
  3. Specify the USERID for the "Owner of Update Task".
  4. Specify the Recurrence interval ("Daily" or "Weekly").
  5. Specify the frequency for when you want to "Update Software Catalog", in days or weeks, depending on the value of Recurrence.
  6. After you have set up the values for the fields above, click "APPLY" to effect the changed settings.
