Auto maintenance facility

The auto maintenance facility enables most software upgrades to be applied to MainView for CICS without restarting target CICS systems. Implementing auto maintenance requires one-time modifications to the CICS CSD, PLT and SIT, and to the BBI-SS JCL, as described in Completing implementation. After these modifications are complete, you can use the auto maintenance facility to apply updates and patches to MainView for CICS; modifications to the CSD, PLT, and SIT will no longer be required when you upgrade to a new release of CICS or MainView for CICS.

Security considerations related to auto maintenance are discussed in Site-specific security.

For a list of the MainView AutoOPERATOR for CICS functions that are available when communications between a BBI-SS PAS and CICS is established, see Additional MainView AutoOPERATOR for CICS functions. For more information, see:
