CONTROL-M for Distributed Systems and INCONTROL


for z/OS
August 18, 2008
Reminder of future support changes

BMC Software would like to remind users of version 6.1.xx of BMC CONTROL-M
products and components that support changes will take effect in 2009. BMC will end
support for the products and versions listed in Table 1 on page 2 and Table 2 on
page 3. This end of support complies with the BMC support policy as stated on the
Customer Support site (http://www.bmc.com/support_home).
For the BMC CONTROL-M for Distributed Systems product, BMC recommends
upgrading to version 6.3.01. For the BMC INCONTROL for z/OS product (formerly
INCONTROL for OS/390 and z/OS), BMC recommends upgrading to version 6.3.02
or later.
Version 6.3.01 of CONTROL-M for Distributed Systems, released in January 2007,
offers several enhancements. Enhancements to version 6.3.01 include a central
configuration management for all CONTROL-M components (for both distributed
systems and z/OS), agentless scheduling, Web Launch for client interfaces,
integration with CMDB and Remedy, and support for new platforms and database
releases.

NOTE
BMC plans to release CONTROL-M for Distributed Systems version 6.4.01 before the support
change takes effect.

BMC Software has recently released Maintenance version 6.3.02 of INCONTROL for
z/OS (formerly INCONTROL for OS/390 and z/OS). This release includes support
for version 6.3.01 of CONTROL-M/Enterprise Manager (including support for the
new Configuration Manager component), integration with Remedy and CMDB,
built-in support for BMC Batch Impact Manager, incremental upgrade support (C-1
support), installation using default parameters, and the ability to clone INCONTROL
installations.
For more information about these recommended versions, see the relevant release
notes. If you have any questions, contact BMC Software Customer Support at 800 537
1813 (United States or Canada) or call your local support center.
