CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Edward Gorga, Principal Support Engineer for August 20, 2013.

As from IDMS 18.0 the install process creates a new load library, the CUSTOM.LOADLIB. It contains modules that are customized for your site and are required to run IDMS, this includes the CV, batch jobs and UCF. When upgrading you need to add this new library to the JCL for the CV, all batch jobs, the DFHRPL in UCFCICS regions and UCFTSO clists. If you are using the LINKLIST for IDMS load libraries then add it to the LINKLIST and issue an LLA REFRESH operator command. The libraries should be concatenated like this:


Alternatively, if you don't want to change any JCL, you can copy all modules from the CUSTOM.LOADLIB to the CV specific DBA.LOADLIB.

Failure to include the CUSTOM.LOADLIB will result in S0C4, S806 or U4008 abends.
