Component versions must be aligned for the full current functionality

To be able to fully exploit the latest features of the agent for z/OS, make sure that the versions of all components are aligned.

To be able to use the complete functionality currently available in the agent for z/OS, the versions of the agent and of the dynamic workload broker to which it is attached (be it on a dynamic domain manager or a master domain manager) must be concurrent.

Specifically, if you connect the agent for z/OS version with a dynamic domain manager or a master domain manager version 8.6 or, you cannot define jobs by reference or use variable substitution in the JCLs.

If you do, upon submission the jobs will terminate in error and in some cases will hang indefinitely without issuing an error code.
