Installing

Last update April 23, 2018

Review the README file before beginning the installation. This file contains information that is not available elsewhere about various important topics, including product concerns, new features, and installation or maintenance issues. 

Important! All information that is required to start the installed CA Datacom® products using the documented procedures is provided during the installation and validation of the products.  

Complete the following list before beginning this installation:

  • Read the cover letter and any Product Information Packets (PIPs) delivered with the installation tape.
  • Read the README file for the product.
  • See the Installation Worksheets. These procedure parameters are required for all new or upgrade CA Datacom® product installations. Verify that each parameter has a valid value.

Installation Sequence

To execute sample jobs, they must be executed in sequential order by name and number. Review, edit, execute, and complete each installation step before proceeding to the next step. Read the CA Common Services requirements before starting this process. 

Follow these steps:

  1. SMP/E Installation Phase
    Perform the SMP/E jobs as outlined in the following list:
  2. CAIRIM Phase
    Install PC Calls on the LPAR before running either a new install or upgrade. (SVC and SUB System have been replaced with PC Calls.)
  3. Customization Phase
    Before performing either a new install or an upgrade, execute the members that have names that start with BDCUS. It is assumed that each INSTJCL only does a new installation or upgrade and not both within the same PDS.
    • BDCUSNEW is used for new installations only
    • BDCUSUPG is used for upgrades only
  4. New Installation Phase
    Execute the members that have names starting with BDNEW if you are installing CA Datacom® for the first time. After all BDNEW jobs have executed successfully, the new CA Datacom® environment is ready for use.
  5. Upgrade Installation Phase
    Execute the members that have names starting with BDUPG if you are performing an upgrade installation. When the BDUPG jobs have executed successfully, the upgrade is complete and the new environment is ready for use.
  6. Post-Installation Phase
    Configure a MUF using the DBDATIN2 member as your MUF JOB or STC, because installation verification programs run against the customized MUF. Member MUFSTRTS can be used as a starting shell for this JCL.
    Do not use the preconfigured MUF once the upgrade process is complete. This MUF is customized to support the upgrade process only. It is not intended to be used for the permanent MUF Startup process for your site. See the following examples:
    • Member MUFSTRTS for a new installation
    • Member MUFSTRTU for an upgraded MUF
    • Member DBUTLTYS for JCL used for NEW with DBUTLTY
    • Member DBUTLTYU for JCL used in the upgrade process for DBUTLTY
    Make any CA Datacom® CICS Services modifications necessary for your specific site.
  7. Installation Verification Phase
    Start your customized MUF for your site. Do not use any of the MUFs from the upgrade process, for example, MUFs from the fallback or fall forward part of the upgrade process. Use the MUFs configured for each of these processes. Do not use any of your internal configured MUFs.
    Once the upgrade process is complete, verify that the DBDATIN2 member is ready to be used for your site. Start your MUF and begin the installation verification programs against that MUF instance.
    Execute the members that have names that start with IVPNEW* or IVPUPG*. When the IVP* jobs have executed successfully, the CA Datacom® Version 15.x product installation is complete.

    "For more information about accessing the README File, see How to Obtain the README File." ...should be a hyperlink that takes me to that "How to Obtain the README File" documentation. As it stands, everyone has to waste time searching for it. It is very hard to find.

      Hi Owen. I am working on either making this a separate topic so that is stands out in the TOC area or creating an internal link. Thanks again for your help in creating a better user experience.

    "2. CAIRIM phase" should have a link to https://docops.ca.com/ca-datacom/15-1/en/administrating/ca-datacom-db-database-and-system-administration/establishing-communication-with-z-os#EstablishingCommunicationwithz/OS-CAIRIMInstallation
