Standard implementation procedures
If you are upgrading MainView for CICS or MainView AutoOPERATOR for CICS and have already implemented auto maintenance, these procedures do not have to be repeated.
The MainView for CICS auto maintenance facility enables most software upgrades to be applied to the product without restarting target CICS systems. Implementing auto maintenance requires modifications to the CICS CSD, CICS PLT and SIT, and to the BBI-SS JCL. These procedures are described in Completing implementation.
When the modifications are completed, you can use the facility to apply updates and patches to MainView for CICS. See Using the auto maintenance facility for information about using the facility.
Before applying a product update or patch, familiarize yourself with the topics discussed in General considerations.
Before implementing or using the auto maintenance facility, familiarize yourself with the topics discussed in Completing implementation.
Security considerations are discussed in Site-specific security.
