If a program was loaded with HOLD, using RELEASE will release the HOLD on the program. However, in the pure sense of what you're asking, the only way to "unload a program from CICS" is the bring the region down and back up. CICS programs are loaded into memory upon first reference (or when a LOAD command is issued) and typically remain there until CICS determines, in a system process that you the application programmer has absolutely no control over, that the program can be removed from memory due to another program being loaded. Unless it's a region with lots of programs or very big programs, most programs when loaded will stay there in memory until the region comes down.

Hopefully your promotion process makes a backup of the old program before it it copied into the load library. if so, you can copy the old program from backup into the CICS DFHRPL library (load library) and then do a NEWCOPY to get back to the old version. Otherwise, you could have a bit of a problem since bringing the region down and back up will only keep the program out of memory until it is referenced.

Sounds like you failed to have a recovery plan in your promotion process

Contact your CICS Systems Technical support group. They have the
experience in fixing these situtaions.
