Question:
We are planning to have Single SMPE CSI for all below products. Which means we will have single global ,Target & Dlib zone. in other words all FMIDS will be in one zone for all products. CA Common services CA7 CA OPS MVS CA 1 CA Dispatch CA Eastrieve CA JCl Check CA Spool Compress/MVS2 Will this be an issue.
Environment:
z/OS
Answer:
We always recommend CA COMMON SERVICES be installed into separate SMP/E libraries. We recommended to keep CCS390 separate and allow easier fallback to a previous release if necessary. CA COMMON SERVICES has a huge impact on a system processing, because every CA Solution depends on it
In addition, what if something goes wrong with a product, and compromises the entire CSI.
CA COMMON SERVICES must always be kept intact.
