We are pleased to announce that RedHat Linux 7.5 has been certified for use with CA Gen 8.6.

 

The technical requirements for CA Gen 8.6 have been updated to reflect this addition.

 

 

Best Regards,

Gen 8.6 has been updated to support the use of the universal DB2 attachment stub (DSNULI) when linking CICS and batch applications. This allows sharing of some modules that may have required separate copies due to environment specific DB2 stubs.

 

The use of DSNULI has been implemented as optional behavior. Installing the PTFs will provide the capability, but DSNULI support must be selected and configured through Target definition within the HE or IT. The default selection is NO, which preserves existing functionality. 

 

Implementation requires the following PTFs: RO98369  RO98370 RO98371

 

Detail for the solution is at the link below:

 

USE DSNULI IN ORDER TO ONLY LINK EDIT DYNAMIC MODULES ONCE 

 

Special thanks to the customers and partners who assisted us with testing and refining this feature.

 

Best Regards,
