Introduction: 

Previously, PIB GI93034 contained information about the compatibility of the supported CA IDMS releases with regard to the different hardware platforms and Operating System versions. This document however is no longer maintained.

 

Question: 

Where can I find this information ?

 

Environment:  

CA IDMS releases 18.0, 18.5 and 19.0

 

Answer: 

You can use the following link to go to the Mainframe Compatibilities page on CA Support Online :

http://www.ca.com/us/support/ca-support-online/mainframe-compatibilites/mainframe-compatibilities.aspx                                                   

From this page you can find information about IBM z13 compatibilies, z/OS compatibilities and so on.

Example, this link brings you directly to the z/OS Compatibility matrix page :

https://support.ca.com/phpdocs/0/MSPSaccount/COMPAT/zos_compat.HTML

To find more about CA IDMS, just type "CA IDMS" in the Filter box.

While typing, the requested information with regard to release 18.0, 18.5 and 19.0 will be displayed. If PTFs are required for a z/OS release, a "PTF" link is shown which will show all required PTFs for that z/OS release.

Furthermore, this page also contains a link to the "Product Status" and "Maintenance Grid" Pages for these CA IDMS releases.
