Question:

SMP/e REPORT MISSINGFIX for the z/OS 2.2 FIXCAT(CA.TARGETSYSTEM-REQUIREDSERVICE.Z/OS.V2R2) returns no matching HOLDDATA entries for CA Datacom/AD 14.0 and also for CA Datacom/DB 14.0 and 15.0 Is this accurate?

Answer:
 
CA Datacom products have been using the FIXCAT categories for a few years now so you can be sure that the results are accurate after a new operating system or environment has become generally available (GA) and the CA Compatibilities for Mainframe Environments at https://support.ca.com/irj/portal/pam has been updated.
 
Here  is the SMP/e job run today against a CA Datacom/DB 14.0 (or 15.0) CSI:
