To start the products
Update the IMS control or DBCTL region, if applicable, to include the APF-authorized library in the STEPLIB concatenation. The APF-authorized library must precede the IMS RESLIB in the STEPLIB concatenation.
BMC recommends that you execute the IMS system from a STEPLIB or JOBLIB.
If it is unacceptable at your site to execute IMS from a STEPLIB or JOBLIB, you must use ddname BMCRESLB to allocate the IMS RESLIB that is accessed from the LINKLIST to IMS. In addition, the DELTA PLUS APF-authorized library must be in the BMCRESLB concatenation.
- Start BMCXLINK.
BMCXLINK allows users to communicate with an IMS system. TSO-based users of IMS and the product do not have to run on the same CPU. DLPCNTL member DLP#LINK provides sample JCL for BMCXLINK.
The BMCXLINK task must have WRITE access authority to the Log and History File data sets.
- Process the CPU ID password (either bypass or permanent) that will allow the product to work.
For more information, see the installation guide.
- Cold start IMS.
