I upgraded one LPAR to CA OPS/MVS 13.5 a few weekends ago.
The step where one copies OPSTART1 from the old release to the new release had a problem so OPSTART1 was not updated. When I restarted OPSMAIN the message was received:
OPS0040I OPS0902E Cannot find program OPSSPA00 in SYS1.PARMLIB
Yet CA OPS?MVS continued to initialize.
I wasn't aware there was a problem until I went to check the STCTBL and the one we use most was missing. It took a while to find the problem which then has a quick fix.
Why didn't CA OPS/MVS fail with a jcl error or something?
My idea for an Enhancement Request is for CA OPS/MVS to exit the initialization with an appropriate error message when this occurs.
