Discussion created by Eddy_G Employee on Sep 4, 2013
The latest aggregate maintenance solution for IDMS 18.0 has been released, it is RO60599.

Remember that the aggregate maintenance is not a service pack, it is just a way to make it easy for you to download all published PTFs.
The way we deliver maintenance for IDMS is via CA Recommended Service (CA RS). For more details on CA RS see CA Recommended Service for z/OS. Also see the ]CA Maintenance Philosophy and ]CA Mainframe Maintenance Update.

It is important that you download all HOLDDATA and exclude any PTFs which may be in error.

To summarize, the CA RS process is as follows:

1. Download all available PTFs for IDMS from support.ca.com.

2. Download the CA ERROR HOLDDATA file from ftp://ftp.ca.com/pub/HoldData/ALL-HOLDDATA.TXT

3. Download the CA RS ASSIGN files from ftp://ftp.ca.com/pub/ASSIGNS

4. Receive All PTFs, HOLDDATA, and CARS ASSIGN files.

5. Apply the CA RS PTFs - using APPLY SOURCEID(CARYYMM)
