CA Tech Tip from Karina Pulinx , Principal Support Engineer , for June 28,2016.
The CA Datacom z/VSE 12.0 base install only delivered SAMPJCL members for one type of Fallback and Fall Forward.
These are sometimes called "hard" Fallback and Fall Forward, because a backup of the old version environment CXX ,DD (DBID 2) and DDD(DBID 15) is restored to get back to the prior version . This is done via install job BEUPG04R .
RO90000 provides an alternate Fallback/Fall Forward process that does not resort to restoring a backup of the 11.0 environment.
It is called the "soft" Fallback/Fall Forward.
In this case, jobs are run to convert certain structures to their 11.0 format without restoring from a backup.
New SAMPJCL members for soft Fallback and Fall Forward are now provided in your CA Datacom INSTALL Library .
Those members are BEFBK01.Z , BEFBK02.Z , BEFBK03.Z , BEFBK04.Z , BEFFW01.Z , BEFFW02.Z , BEFFW03.Z and BEFFW04.Z .
Make sure to install RO90732 also .
