Title: PEA - UPDATE HOLDDATA PTF RO45670 NON CMS USERS OK TO APPLY
Product: IDMS
Release: 18.0
Opsys: OS
Solution #: 297

CA Support aparNo=RI48630

Description:

**** PRODUCT ERROR ALERT ****

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
The HOLDDATA for PTF RO45670 indicates clients who do not have the CA IDMS CMS Option installed should not apply PTF RO45670.
This statement can cause confusion for non CMS Option clients who apply PTF RO45670 in a normal maintenance process and are unsure
of the impact of applying PTF RO45670 and the installation of the the CA IDMS SVC on z/OS systems.

SYMPTOMS:
PTF RO45670 contains the following statement in the first sentence of its HOLDDATA information:

COMMENT ( Do not apply this PTF, if you do not have the CA IDMS CMS Option installed.

IMPACT:
Applying PTF RO45670 has no impact for non CMS option clients and the install of the z/OS CA IDMS SVC. PTF RO45670 applies
to CA IDMS module IDMSMSVM which is a CMS Option specific module. IDMSMSVM will only become a component module of the
CA IDMS SVC for z/OS clients with the CMS Option installed.
For non CA IDMS CMS Option clients, IDMSMSVM is not included in the CA IDMS SVC for z/OS.

CIRCUMVENTION:
Non CMS Option clients executing on a z/OS system do not need to apply PTF RO45670. However, if PTF RO45670 is applied
by a non CMS Option client, there is no adverse impact with the installation of the CA IDMS z/OS SVC.
