What FIXCAT categories are provided by BMC?
FIXCAT provides the capability to identify maintenance based on specific fix categories. A Fix category might be used to support:
- A particular hardware device
- New release of software / operating system
- Provide a particular software function
Fix categories are provided in the form of SMP/E FIXCAT HOLDDATA statements. BMC uses the same FIXCAT format as IBM and other vendors.
For a list of BMC FIXCAT categories, please refer to the table at https://docs.bmc.com/docs/is/fixcat-data-811102256.html
The SMP/E REPORT MISSINGFIX command can be used to identify PTFs for particular fix categories that are missing in your Target zone. Please refer to Knowledge Article 000175604 (How do I run the SMP/E MISSINGFIX report for BMC FIXCAT categories?) for details on how to run this.
