Introduction:

We have an FMID which came with CA View 14.0,  CCAFE00. This is Content Viewer r14. Should I install this?

Background:

You should install the FMID as a placeholder, but you may not want to install the Content Viewer 14.0 yet.  Scroll down for an explanation.

The CA View installation now includes optional components for you to install CA Deliver and a placeholder FMID for installing CA OM Web Viewer Release 14.0 in the future. This FMID establishes the required SMP and USS environments. At publication time, CA OM Web Viewer 14.0 is not yet completed. When it is completed, we plan to release it as a PTF. The PTF is planned to use this placeholder FMID to install CA OM Web Viewer 14.0. 


Note: This FMID is a prerequisite for CA OM Web Viewer 14.0. If you plan to install CA OM Web Viewer 14.0, install this FMID when you install the CA View 14.0 PAX file. Otherwise, you must re-install the PAX file and must include this FMID before you can apply the CA OM Web Viewer 14.0 PTF. Installation of CA OM Web Viewer includes a zFS file that is mounted to your USS file system. The installer must have the proper authorities to create and update USS directories, and issue the USS mount command. 

This release streamlines the installation of CA View, CA Deliver, CA OM Content Viewer (Web Viewer), and CA DRAS by including these products in a single pax file. You can install each product or any combination of them, with fewer steps and in less time than in previous releases

Mainframe Team Center – Content Viewer

The marquee feature of INC01 is the first release of Mainframe Team Center – Content Viewer (CA OM Web Viewer) as a component of CA View. This component lets end users access CA View reports from a modern web browser. Administrators can customize the databases and reports that end users can access. INC01 provides a base level of functionality for administrators and end users. Later increments will provide additional functionality.

If you want to install and use the Content Viewer, here is a list of what you need to do:

Install the following CA View 14.0 INC01 PTFs. 

  • R095789 - for CA View
  • R095790 - for CA Deliver (if applicable)
  • R095791 - for the shared EBC component, which both CA View and CA Deliver require

  • R095520 - for CA DRAS (if applicable)
  • R095792 - for CA DRAS agent code for CA View (if applicable)

    Note: Install PTFs RO95520 and RO95792 if you installed CA DRAS in INC00. In this case, these PTFs are required for compatibility reasons, even if you do not plan to use CA DRAS any longer.
  • R095796 - for Mainframe Team Center – Content Viewer  

    Note: You must also perform the post-installation tasks in Install Mainframe Team Center – Content Viewer.

   

Additional Information:

Content Viewer 14.0 INC01 is not a "full GA" release yet. It is in the incremental phase - it is available to customers but it does not have full functionality.

It's in a different situation than other mainframe products that have incremental releases (like View 14.0) because increments are built on top of the prior release - they just add new features to an existing product.

Since Content Viewer 14.0 is re-building Web Viewer 12.1 from the ground up, it does not contain all the functionality of 12.1.  If you need a full functioning product, at this time, install Web Viewer 12.1.  Web Viewer 12.1 is compatible with View and DRAS 14.0.

There is still time to join the CA Customer Validation Project for future increments of Content Viewer 14.0 and make your voice heard.  Select the CA View-Deliver-WebViewer 14.0 project.
