What do the product codes mean that are used in the names of Control-M installation packages, how do I find out which product is which (for example what is DRKAI.8.0.00)?

    Control-M/Enterprise Manager


    Control-M for Distributed Systems


    The installation package/filename are named with a product code, such as DRAFT.7.0.00 which is the installation package name of the Control module Advanced File Transfer.
    What is the meaning of the letters so I can identify quicker which product each file is?

    The 5 letter prefix of our product codes consist of two parts:

    The first 2 letters: indicate PA or DR, which is an internal indication of what kind of release it is, i.e. a full base release of a product or a patch/fix pack

    The next 3 letters are the product code. This is basically a random three letter code, although sometimes a nice abbreviation was chosen for example in the case of AFT.
