Differences between HISRV 1.0 and 2.0 when upgrading include the following 

In version 1.0, HISRV is packaged by itself as an individual component.
In version 2.0, HISRV and Linux Connector are packaged together under Common Services 14.0 (release date 11/17/2013).                                

DATASETS

HISRV 1.0  SMP/E installs the following datasets 
     hlq.HI10.CC2DJCL   
     hlq.HI10.CC2DLINK 
     hlq.HI10.CC2DLOAD 
     hlq.HI10.CC2DXML 

HISRV 2.0 SMPE installs the following datasets
 --Allocated with members--
     hlq.CC2DJCL
     hlq.CC2DLINK
     hlq.CC2DLOAD  
     hlq.CC2DXML   

--Allocated but empty--
     hlq.CC2DLMD0  
     hlq.CC2DLPA 
     hlq.CC2DMAC  
     hlq.CC2DSAMP  

The empty data sets are due to the addition of Linux Connector in the  packaging.    
They are allocated but remain empty as they are not used by HISRV.  
So there really are no changes to the number of datasets used by HISRV in  R2.0.

SECURITY

For HISRV 2.0 please review the security section starting on page 411 in the Common Services Installation Guide 14.1.  Please be sure to use  the latest manual available on the web as the Common Services manual is frequently updated.   

There may be changes to the first sections regarding security, especially if you are using RACF.   

Multiple new sections were added  to authorize users for various functions.  Please review and implement these sections.  Please note that our examples assume that you have defined the new parameters HWISAFCL and HWISAFPF with the values we recommend.  Several customers have  hit problems by not having these parameters in the HISPRM.
