Updating VTAM In DLA and DLP
If you want to base your VTAM definition statements on BMC-provided sample statements, use the sample statements from member DLP$APPL of the DLPSAMP library.
- Assemble and link-edit the VTAM mode table.
The VTAM mode table is supplied in member DLP#MODE of the DLPCNTL library. You must assemble and link-edit the mode table into SYS1.VTAMLIB or its equivalent.
If you are a DELTA IMS user and you are installing DELTA PLUS or DELTA PLUS VIRTUAL TERMINAL, you cannot use the BMCLINK VTAM mode table. If you do, BMCXLINK will issue the following message:
BMCDLP187700E VTAM OPEN RC=X'**', FDBK2=X'**', incorrect RUSIZES from MODETAB
- Create TSO/ISPF APPL definition statements in SYS1.VTAMLST for each TSO system that will run the product online interface.
Use the following guidelines when you create TSO/ISPF APPL definition statements:
TSO LU names must be unique throughout your VTAM network.
TSO ACBNAMEs must be unique only within a given MVS system.
TSO ACBNAMEs must use the format prefnnnn, where pref is a four-character prefix used for all BMCXLINK ACBNAMEs and nnnn is a number in a sequence that starts with 0001.
BMC recommends that the TSO session identifier that begins each TSO/ISPF APPL definition statement match the corresponding TSO ACBNAME; however, a match is not required.
The following figure shows sample statements. Sample VTAM statements are also available in member DLP$APPL of the DLPSAMP library.
Sample TSO/ISPF APPL statements
DLPU0001 APPL AUTH=(ACQ,PASS),MODETAB=DLPMODE, X DLOGMOD=DLPMOD1,EAS=1, X ACBNAME=DLPU0001 DLPU0002 APPL AUTH=(ACQ,PASS),MODETAB=DLPMODE, X DLOGMOD=DLPMOD1,EAS=1, X ACBNAME=DLPU0002 DLPU0003 APPL AUTH=(ACQ,PASS),MODETAB=DLPMODE, X DLOGMOD=DLPMOD1,EAS=1, X ACBNAME=DLPU0003 DLPU0004 APPL AUTH=(ACQ,PASS),MODETAB=DLPMODE, X DLOGMOD=DLPMOD1,EAS=1, X ACBNAME=DLPU0004 DLPU0005 APPL AUTH=(ACQ,PASS),MODETAB=DLPMODE, X DLOGMOD=DLPMOD1,EAS=1, X ACBNAME=DLPU0005
Create one BMCXLINK APPL statement for each BMCXLINK started task that you will use. BMCXLINK LU NAMES must be unique throughout your VTAM network. The following figure shows a sample statement.
Sample BMCXLINK APPL statement
DLPX0001 APPL AUTH=(ACQ,PASS),EAS=10
One BMCXLINK can be used to service all IMS systems in the entire XCF complex. The only restriction is that if you are using Groups, a single BMCXLINK must be used for all requests against a Group.
- Create CDRSC statements if necessary.
If the online interface and BMCXLINK
Run on the same MVS system
Go to Step 4.
Do not run on the same MVS system in some or all cases
Use the following guidelines to create CDRSC statements.
Follow these guidelines when creating CDRSC statements:
Each CDRSC LU name must match the LU name of the BMCXLINK APPL statement that defines the BMCXLINK task for the IMS system.
The CDRM= parameter must identify the minor node where the BMCXLINK task and IMS system will run.
The following figure shows sample statements.
Sample CDRSC definition for MVST system
VBUILD TYPE=CDRSC DLPL0001 CDRSC CDRM=cdrmid VBUILD TYPE=CDRSC DLPL0002 CDRSC CDRM=cdrmid
- Verify that the SYS1.VTAMLST member names, LU names, and ACBNAMEs that you created conform to your site’s standards and the requirements that are specified in this task.
- If you have the required authority, activate the VTAM definition statements. Otherwise, verify that the definitions have been activated before proceeding with the configuration process.
