Question:

Why is CA Datacom in the Product List for CA View/Deliver?

Environment:
CA View 11.5 and higherCA Deliver 11.5 and higher
Answer:

CA View/Deliver uses the CA Health Checker Common Service (CA HCCS) for their Health Checks. 

The Health Checks are done only if the CA HCCS functionality is configured. 

This is the reason why CA Common Services is in the View/Deliver product list. 

 

Datacom/AD is used by CA Common Services. 

This is the reason why Datacom/AD is in the View/Deliver product list. 

 

There is no direct tie between View/Deliver and Datacom/AD.

If Datacom/AD is installed for other CA products, then installing it for View/Deliver is not necessary. 

 

CA DRAS, packaged with View, has an option to use the CA Spool JAVA transformers. 

This is the reason why the Java transformers are in the View/Deliver product list. 

If there is no use for the Java portion of CA Spool, the installing of it to View/Deliver is not necessary. 

 

It is the client's choice in deciding whether they want to install those elements into the same SMP/E zones with View or Deliver. 

Datacom/AD and the CA Spool Java Transformers are separate install packages, as opposed to having their FMIDs in the same package as View/Deliver.

If they were packaged as FMIDs in View/Deliver, this would then require them to be installed to the same SMP/E zone.
