CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Edward Gorga, Principal Support Engineer for November 5, 2013.
As from IDMS 18.0, whether you use MSM or install from a pax file, the SMP/E part of the install will install all IDMS products. This means you only need to download one pax file from support online to install IDMS. In support.ca.com go to the Download Center and search for product 'CA IDMS/DB - MVS'.
This way every CA IDMS client will have the same modules installed, the same SMP/E environment, regardless of which products you want to use.
After the SMP/E install, in the configuration step you identify the products you want to use. You specify this in the VARBLIST. CAISAG then generates in JOB02, the JCL needed to create module RHDCPINT which identifies the products you actually want to use.
