more on SVC

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on May 7, 2009
CA changed to the doc for r 17 - when running 2 releases of IDMS on the
same SVC (which requires the refresh option):

The doc is correct. You should always use the latest GJxxINIT module and
the latest SVC, which are downward compatible.
The two CAIRIM statements are needed so that both releases are
registered to use the indicated SVC.

so if running 16 and 17 on the same SVC - use the 17 svc AND init module
to init both the R16 and R17 CVs .....

Re: more on SVC
"Why would you want to run 2 different releases on the same SVC? IMO you
are just asking for problems, I know it can be done but I would never
think of doing that. I have over 20 CV's running on 3 LPARs and would
not run them on the different releases and the same SVC. What does the
other shops do in this situation? I keep one SVC for the current
production release and one for the current test release. I am also more
of a system programmer but install all IDMS software and third party
products so I control the CAIRIM jobs and SVC assignment for these.
