Question & Answer
Does CICS Interdependency Analyzer for z/OS (CICS IA) V5.3 require a new or upgraded CICS IA plug-in for CICS Explorer? When I try to connect to the DB2 data base it fails with message:
IZE0106E Connect failed with error "this is the base CICS IA explorer plugin"
I just upgraded CICS IA from V5.2 to V5.3 for the host runtime and DB2 data base. My CICS Explorer IA plugin is still at 126.96.36.199 [build id: 20150908-1632]. This same CICS IA plugin works fine connecting to a host at CICS IA V5.1 or V5.2.
Yes, the CICS IA V5.3 Detailed System Requirements for the CICS IA Plug-in identify the CICS Explorer V5.3 and the CICS IA V5.3 Plug-in as pre-requisities.
For specific details:
