Problem(Abstract)

You would like to know what problems you might encounter when you upgrade from one release of CICS or CICSPlex SM to another. You also want to know what CICS problems you might encounter if you change to a new release of z/OS or DB2.

Resolving the problem

Select the appropriate link for the product you are installing to be taken to the corresponding table. Then click the search link to the right of the release of the product you are installing.

If you are upgrading from an old release, you should click the search link for all the intervening releases. For example, if upgrading from CICS TS 4.1 to 5.1 then you should click search to the right of "CICS transaction Server for z/OS 4.2" and "CICS Transaction Server for z/OS 5.1".
