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).                                


HISRV 1.0  SMP/E installs the following datasets 

HISRV 2.0 SMPE installs the following datasets
 --Allocated with members--

--Allocated but empty--

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.    


The documentation in HISRV 1.0 is contained in one product manual.

The documentation for HISRV 2.0 is divided up into multiple locations: 
      - Common Services 14.1 Installation Guide
      - Common Services 14.1 Reference Guide
      - OPS/MVS product manuals   


These were available in 1.0  
     FSTOP - Stops the service.        
     SHOW HWIUSERS - Lists the users of the service.       
     STATUS - Displays the status of the service.   

This was added in 2.0       
     SHOW HWITOP - Displays the current topology.     


These are new in  2.0      


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.
