Detailed System Requirements for CICS TS and related products

Product Documentation


Detailed System Requirements (DSR) are available through the Software Product Compatibility Reports (SPCR) web site. The requirements contain the supported operating system requirements, hardware requirements, software requirements, and other related information for a product. From this document you can select the DSR for supported releases of CICS Transaction Server (CICS TS) and CICS TS for z/VSE. You can also follow the instructions provided to view DSRs for other products.


Note that your entitlement to support, if any, is dependent upon your license or maintenance agreements for CICS and is limited to your use of this relevant prerequisite with a supported CICS product.

Click on one of the following links to see the Detailed System Requirements for CICS TS:

Under the "Supported Software" tab in the Detailed System Requirements of each CICS TS version, you will find the versions of the CICS Tools and many other products that are supported by that particular version of CICS TS.  If you click on the "Notes" or "Details" column for the tool, you will find things like the required APARs.
