We're running the latest IDMSMSVA (as delivered by RO12844) on our SP0 =
R17 CVs.
No problems so far (crosses fingers, touches wood).
These are SP0 CVs with PTFs applied, including RO09452.

We had the test version of RO12844 for a problem we hit on test and on =
our UTE system - we saw S378 abends on batch jobs.

We've been told by CA that it is possible to bring the new IDMSMSVA in =
with CVs up.
There should be no batch (CV or local mode) running, as if they try to =
do an LMP key check at the exact moment MSVA is being refreshed, they'll =
fail with a S0C1

Has anybody out there used the SP1 or post

"Thanks Iain.

But I am really talking about using the new IDMSMSVA with an SP0 wthout RO09452 applied. RO09452 introduced changes to IDMSMVSA plus a whole load of updates to ordinary loadlib modules. Our current system is without RO09452 and I need that one to run from ist own loadlib but with the new IDMSMSVA in LPA. It is running so far without a problem. I shall cross my fingers.

""Ca reliable source"" also says that you only experience the batch abends during the CAIRIM itself with the CV up. Your mail implies otherwise - or does it?
