I'm upgrading our CA for DB2 z/OS tools from r16 to r18. I've already completed the SMP/E steps and have completed most of the post-installation configuration.
I've changed the PTXMAN task to point to the new r18 datasets. However, when I start PTXMAN, it still points to r16 version. What am I doing wrong? This is the message I see:
PXM0100 CA/XMANAGER 16.0 INIT IN PROGRESS ID=1600
Look to see what proclib the started task is starting from – perhaps the started task you updated is not the one that is being pulled in at start-up time
Look for IEFC001I PROCEDURE PDTT01DB WAS EXPANDED USING SYSTEM LIBRARY (the library name would be here)

Yes, I did check that and it is pulling the PROC from the correct dataset.
Make sure you have to correct XMANID in your PROC. It sounds like you are still pointing to R16 somewhere.
Also check your PTILIB and PTIPARM DDs to make sure they are for your R18 install.
When you say you changed the R16 Xman proc to point to R18 I wouldn't suggest you do that.
Keep the R16 proc as R16 and create a new R18 proc make sure you the 4 important DD's point to R18 libraries
STEPLIB, PTILIB, PTIPARM and PXMPARM
Rather than let the XMANID default update your R18 proc XMANID parm to something like 1800
PTXDV180 PROC XMANID=1800,
A support case was opened, and Kumaresh contacted. r16 version rel files inadvertently populated the r18 target libraries. The r18 platform was scratched, and the install restarted from the top..
Just as an alternative approach – we NEVER use release-dependent dataset names for any product I support (idms, db2, plati – oops, – CA-DB2; we have had the same sandbox/staging/test/qa/training/prod runtime dataset names for 20+ years – when it comes time to upgrade -= we empty and populate the sandbox from the SMP/E target libs – then as each environment is updated, we copy the libraries from the previous level up (to make sure we do not introduce any untested modules anywhere else other than the sandbox area
