Attention Fixated Listologists: Using a Fix List to monitor APARs for currently supported CICS products
bobby_g 060000DF9B Visits (2596)
A Fix List summarizes all the APARs for each version, release, and modification (VRM) level of the currently supported CICS products.
For example, the following link contains a Fix List table of APARs for CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) V4.2. A comma separated values (CSV) file containing all the fields for each APAR is also included as an attachment. You can use the CSV file to import the list of APARs into a spreadsheet or database for sorting or downloading.
This latest update of the Fix List was done on August 29, 2011.
As part of IBM's commitment to quality and continuous improvement, IBM has established an additional service testing environment called Consolidated Service Test (CST). CST provides a consolidated, tested, and recommended set of service for z/OS and key subsystems on a quarterly basis. IBM is redefining RSU (Recommended Service Upgrade) for the z/OS operating system so that it contains service that has been through CST testing. Now, the CST team tests all the current PTFs for these products together, so that a PTF service is available for z/OS and key subsystems together in one RSU source ID, free of charge to all z/OS customers.
