Preventive Service Planning and Access to OMEGAMON PSP

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Where is the Preventive Service Planning (PSP Bucket) information located that is cited in the OMEGAMON product's Program Directory ?

Cause

Preventive Service Planning (PSP) is organized by product UPGRADE and SUBSET ; the UPGRADE and SUBSET are both given in the Program Directory for a product of interest. The text in the Program Directory for the PSP Bucket identifying the UPGRADE and SUBSET is in Section 3.2 Preventive Service Planning.


The Program Directory containing the UPGRADE and SUBSET for OMEGAMON products can be found in IBM's Info Center, URL follows...
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v15r1/index.jsp?toc=/com.ibm.itm.doc/toc.xml
At the Info Center scroll the left menu to the product of interest and expand it...such as
OMEGAMON XE for Storage on z/OS then find and expand the Program Directory.
For this Prog Dir, Page 6 has the UPGRADE and SUBSET values for OMEGAMON XE for Storage on z/OS....partial text from Page 6 is copied here below as an example:

PSP Buckets are identified by UPGRADEs, which specify product levels; and SUBSETs, which specify the FMIDs for a product level. The UPGRADE and SUBSET values for OMEGAMON XE for Storage on z/OS are included in Figure 3.

This product has an installation requirement for IBM Tivoli Management Services on z/OS V6.2.1 or higher (5698-A79), so you should review the PSP buckets for it as well. Refer to the Program Directory for IBM Tivoli Management Services on z/OS (GI11-4105) for those UPGRADE and SUBSET values.

Answer

PSP Bucket information can be reached by the following direct link to the search engine for PSP buckets where you enter UPGRADE and SUBSET,

(URL verified good May 2012):
http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/psp/srchBroker
The above URL takes you to the PSP search page where the Upgrade name is to be entered in the 'Search for' field or in the 'Upgrade Name' field plus the Subset name is to be entered in the 'Subset name' field... and then click the arrow at the right of the 'Search For' field to start the search.

The search should find the Upgrade-Subset combination that was entered. If you get more than one hit, look for the one that titled 'Upgrade <upgradename>, Subset <subsetname>' .
