Introduction:

Executing the CA Datacom/AD 15.0 SMP/E installation procedure, the job that downloads the ERROR and FIXCAT HOLDDATA from CA Support Online is executed before any other SMP/E job.

Question:

Is there a reason you have to run AAX1HOLD before AAX2CSI, AAX3RECD, AAX4APP and AAX5ACC?

Answer:

From CA Datacom/AD 15.0 Install documentation:

5.  Submit AAX1HOLD. This job produces the following results:

    • This member downloads the error and fixcat HOLDATA from CA Support Online.
    • It allocates data set HLQ.CAI.ERROR.HOLDDATA upon successful execution.
    • The output of this job is used by the SMP/E receive job AAX3RECD, which uses it as input into the environment.

So AAX3RECD job requires the HOLDDATA data set created by AAX1HOLD, therefore AAX1HOLD must be executed first.
