CICSPlex SM Newcopy support
Among the various optons ( SRB, ESA, OPR, OPS, OPQ, XCI) available to the CMNCIC1 batch program, the XCI appears to be the most recently added, but clearly it has nothing to do with the Cicsplex architecture..
I installed the Newcopy feature using the XCI option, after I read the Customization Guide.

If supported, this “new” option should allow ChangeMan to do Newcopy/Phasein in all the Cics of the Plex, with “Target” option equal to the CicsPlex name instead of the CICS applid.
Reading the ChangeMan documentation, I see that something has been done to support the SYSPLEX architecture (LOB option) but conversely there is no mention of CICSPLEX.
The XCI feature, that works fine, needs the Cics / Applid name to be specified in the newcopy job.
In a Cicsplex you don’t specify the names of the Cics regions (nor the regions’ APPLID) because you don’t even know where the programs are defined.
