Your task will be complicated -- different vendors have different SMP/E data sets, so you cannot expect to get everything from one SMP/E query. You will probably have at least as many queries as SMP/E CSI files (some vendors store more than one product in a CSI, some store a single product per CSI). Furthermore, you almost certainly will NOT get license key data from SMP/E. Compuware, for example, uses a License Management System (LMS) which is entirely separate from SMP/E. CA uses a different licensing system but it, too, has nothing to do with SMP/E. Many product vendors tie their license key to the CPC serial number, but there are many, many, many ways to do this. And some vendors do not install through SMP/E (I used to support Trend Micro on a z/Architecture box, and its installation process started by putting a CD into your PC and transferring binary data files to the mainframe).

Hello Robert

thanks for reply.

let's we forget about CA products. just need to get list of ibm products. and we have one global zone. so i tried this program.

SET BOUNDARY(global).
list feature.

but i got warning that FEATURE parameter is not found.

can we get only list of IBM product with Version through any JCL or rexx?

Have you tried just LIST? Or maybe LIST FMIDSET?
