Introduction:
We plan to upgrade our production processor to a z13, and another machine to z14 as Disaster Recovery machine.
Question:
We need to know if there are any minimum release, maintenance, or PTF's that we need to be at to run on either of those 2 machines.
Answer:
CA Endevor v17.0 and v18.0 have been certified with z13/z13s and z14.
CA Endevor v16.0 has been certified with z13 only.
CA Endevor is not hardware dependent then no compatibility fixes are required at this level.
