Hi All, 

In our documentation for installation of the z/OS Agent, the first part is a bit misleading so I wanted to provide some clarification. Just under the "Requirements" section, it has the following information:

https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/12.0/DOCU/12.0/AWA%20Guides/help.htm#AE_AWA_Source/Installation/ucaajq.htm

SMP/E

As of v12 you have to use the SMP/E by IBM in order to install and maintain the z/OS agent, the CallAPI, the External Job Monitor and the Event Monitor. 
The AE's z/OS agent as of v12 is delivered in the Sysmod format.

This wording is a bit misleading. You can install the Agent as described in the documentation, but this particular remark was added to note that it is now possible to use the IBM SMP/E, but this is not a requirement. The wording will be updated to reflect this, but I wanted to get this information out beforehand to hopefully avoid any additional confusion.

    Since than this information has been corrected to:

    "This guile describes the normal installation of a z/OS agent. Note that an SMP/E installation needs to be applied by the z/OS software maintenance team.

    As of v12 you may use the SMP/E by IBM in order to install and maintain the z/OS agent, the CallAPI, the External Job Monitor and the Event Monitor.
    The AE's z/OS agent as of v12 is delivered in the Sysmod format, too."
