Setting IMSID options when installing DELTA PLUS or DELTA PLUS VIRTUAL TERMINAL.

This section describes the procedures for setting IMSID options.

You should set IMSID options if you are performing an initial installation of DELTA PLUS or DELTA PLUS VIRTUAL TERMINAL.

You must create IMSID basic options for each control region that the products service. For more information, see To set IMSID options.

For the products to access an IMS system, you must define the system to the products with a set of IMSID options. When you create or change IMSID options, the load module DLP#iiii (where iiii is the IMSID) is link-edited to your product options library.

You can create a new IMSID by using the product defaults or by copying the options for a new IMSID from an existing IMSID. For more information, see To create a new IMSID.

DELTA PLUS VIRTUAL TERMINAL includes IMSID options that are not available with DELTA PLUS. For additional IMSID options that you can set for DELTA PLUS VIRTUAL TERMINAL, see Setting virtual terminal IMSID options.

Note

BMC recommends the following regarding the IMSID options modules:

  • Use the APF-authorized library to provide both ISPF and IMS with access to the IMSID options modules.

  • Do not use a LINKLIST library to store the IMSID options modules

  • Save IMSID options modules in the same library with the global and Group options (if used) modules.

  • If you have an existing DELTA IMS IMSID options module (DLA#iiii), certain IMSID options module fields can be copied from DLA#iiii. For more information, see the conversion appendices in the product user guide.

To create a new IMSID

  1. Invoke the online interface through the modified ISPF/PDF Primary Option Menu that you created in Accessing the products from an ISPF options menu or through the CLIST that you created in Accessing the products from a CLIST.

    The Main Menu is displayed.

  2. Type 4 in the selection field and press Enter.

    The Administration Menu is displayed.

  3. Type 2 in the selection field and press Enter.

  9. Type 1 in the selection field and press Enter.

    The IMSID Options – Basic Options panel is displayed. The fields on this panel are the same as the fields on the DELTA PLUS Edit IMSID Options panel.

    The following fields are available on this panel:

    IMSID

    The IMSID of the options module that you selected.

    IMS version or release level

    Type the IMS version and release for the IMSID. Possible values are:

    • IMS Version 12.1

    • IMS Version 13.1

    • IMS Version 14.1

    You can specify an IMS level for each IMS system that uses the product. The products can support a combination of IMS systems.

    Allow IMS storage displays

    Type a / in the selection field to enable the storage display feature for this IMS system. You can use internal security to restrict usage of this feature.

    Allow IMS storage zaps

    Type a / in the selection field to enable the storage alteration (zap) feature for this IMS system. The storage zap feature is a powerful tool for correcting problems within the IMS system. However, you should use internal security to restrict usage of this feature.

    Copy IMSID options to an IMS STEPLIB library when saved

    Type a / in the selection field to copy IMSID options modules to an IMS //STEPLIB library when the module is saved in the options library.

    If you select this option, you must specify the name of the IMS //STEPLIB library in which to store the modules that are used by the control region in the IMS STEPLIB library field.

    IMS STEPLIB library

    Specify the name of the IMS //STEPLIB library in which to store the modules that are used by the control region.

    If your installation stores IMSID options modules in separate libraries for use by ISPF and IMS, you should complete this field. If both ISPF and IMS use the same library, this field is optional.

    XRF/FDR Alternate IMSID

    Specify the IMSID of the IMSGEN-defined XRF alternate system or the IMSID of the FDR control region .

    For information about enabling the FDR feature, see Enabling the FDR feature (DELTA PLUS and DELTA PLUS VIRTUAL TERMINAL).

    XCF Group

    Specify the name of the Group to which this IMS system belongs. This field is optional because an IMS system does not have to belong to a Group.

    Do not issue WTOR for coordinated request errors

    Type a / in the selection field to ensure that the WTOR (write to operator with reply) message BMC186124A Errors applying new request from Log, should restart continue? Reply 'Y' or 'N' is not issued at IMS restart if a coordinated request fails.

    Reply Y or N for any new coordinated requests that have errors at restart. Error messages are still issued for coordinated request errors.

    BMCXLINK task network LUNAME

    Type a network LUNAME for the BMCXLINK VTAM subtask. The LUNAME that you specify MUST match the LUNAME that is specified in the PARM field of the BMCXLINK task. The default value for this field is DLPALINK.

    Primary Log

    Type the data set name of the primary Log data set. You must cold-start IMS for this change to take effect.

    Secondary Log

    Type the data set name of the secondary Log data set. You must cold-start IMS for this change to take effect.

    Primary History File

    Type the data set name of the primary History File data set. You must restart IMS for this change to take effect.

    Secondary History File

    Type the data set name of the secondary History File data set. You must restart IMS for this change to take effect.

    Write IMS commands to History File

    Type a / in the selection field to send IMS operator commands that are issued from a DELTA List or from the Execute IMS Command panel to the History File.

    (optional) Primary Repository
    Type the name of the primary DELTA PLUS Repository data set.

    (optional) Secondary Repository

    Type the name of the secondary DELTA PLUS Repository data set.

  10. Press F3 to save changes to the IMSID options.

    Note

    If you specified an existing IMSID in the XRF/FDR Alternate IMSID field, the Confirm Delete pop-up window is displayed before the IMSID options are saved.

    Type 1 in selection field and press Enter to delete the existing options for the IMSID previously specified in the XRF/FDR Alternate IMSID field. This selection also makes the IMSID that is specified in the XRF/FDR Alternate IMSID field the alternate for the IMSID that you are editing.
