Naming conventions for FMID, SYSMOD, PTF, APAR, product distribution files, and runtime libraries
BMC uses naming conventions that reflect product-line organization while allowing for future expansion. BMC also classifies machine-readable data that is used during installation as product installation or product-specific information.
FMID naming conventions
BMC uses the following naming convention for function modification identifiers (FMIDs) of Zpppvrx. For example, ZPWD330 is the FMID for version 3.3 of the Product Authorization utility.
Indicates BMC Software
Product or component identifier
Version and release of a product or component
Numbers 00 to 09 are represented as 0 to 9, and numbers 10 to 35 are represented as A to Z. For example, 1B indicates version 1, release 11; and A1 indicates version 10, release 1.
Unique identifier for products or components that use multiple FMIDs
SYSMOD, PTF, and APAR naming conventions
BMC classifies system modifications (SYSMODs) by product line and type. Each SYSMOD name uses the format BTPFV or BTPnnnn:
Indicates BMC Software (for APARs and PTFs)
An identifier that groups products by product line
A two-character identifier that is used only for a function SYSMOD
A two-digit version number that is used only for a function SYSMOD
An APAR or PTF number within a product line
Installation images naming conventions
For the installation images, BMC uses naming conventions that identify the product and version of the image.
Installation System and product
Installation System images and product prd
Time period that the Enhanced HOLDDATA encompasses
Last two digits of the calendar year
Product distribution files naming conventions
BMC uses naming conventions for product distribution files to prevent conflicts between system and product data sets.
The following naming conventions apply to the installation data sets:
Name variable for product data set
Target library ddname or DDDEF name
Distribution or maintenance library ddname or DDDEF name
Runtime library data set name
Three-letter product code and release number
Release numbers can include a combination of one-digit or two-digit version, release, and modification levels. For example, 2200 means version 2.2.00 (version 2, release 2, no maintenance).
Runtime libraries naming conventions
The Installation System creates different runtime libraries based on the options you choose during installation. For a list of the libraries created by the Installation System, see Library names.
The Installation System can create the following types of libraries:
Runtime libraries use one of the following conventions as specified by you (for more information about LLQs, see Specifying runtime data set information:
|User libraries |
(which use a qualifier of UBMC)
|User libraries contain configuration information.|
