CA Database Management Solutions V19.0 for DB2 for z/OS Complete GA Release is available.
I want to get the file which accumulated PTFs which created after released V19.0 0000 as same V18.0 or before.
In Incremental Relaease, we had to apply every one PTF.
And it needed many working hours for the worker.
And the work caused many mistakes.
Please make V19.0 easy to maintain by the file which accumulated PTFs.

I reached out and was given the necessary information to use the interim solution – it is in fact the cumulative ptf bucket of old (as far as I can tell)


Open an issue with support (ask for Diane – she is GREAT to work with)  or contact me offline for details

A new process has been established for downloading maintenance as an interim solution.  We would encourage anyone interested to reach out to support for details.

I certainly agree it would be good to have the same option in R19 as in R18 for a cumulative PTF bucket. certainly many many clients have requested it.

It was my understanding though that as R19 is an incremental release it was not an easy task to get this implemented.

I fully agree, that would be very useful....................
