Obtaining the Installation System image by using the direct file transfer method

The direct file transfer method uses FTP, SFTP, or FTPS to download the Installation System image and decompression job from the BMC Electronic Software Distribution File Transfer Protocol (BMC ESD FTP) site. Use the following procedure to use the direct file transfer method:
  1. Create a job by copying the appropriate sample JCL.

    See Sample JCL. If prompted, provide a valid support user ID and password. To register for a support user ID and password, go to  http://www.bmc.com/support.

  2. Make the changes described in the following table:

    Item

    Description

    JOB statement

    Customize the jobcard or jobcards to comply with your site’s requirements.

    Note

    These jobs require a REGION parameter value of 0M.

    Variable text in the INPUT DD section

    Change the variables in the input section as described in the description section of the JCL.

    Consider the following information when modifying the JCL:

      • Ensure that the JCL is unnumbered; FTP or SFTP reads all 80 characters.
      • Set CAPS OFF and NUM OFF.
      • Remove the angle brackets (< >) from around the variables when you update them.
      • The BMC ESD FTP server is case sensitive. You must use lowercase letters for all data in the INPUT DD section.

      • To view the current password, go to FTP sites: User IDs, passwords, and certificates. If prompted, provide a valid support user ID and password. To register for a support user ID and password, go to http://www.bmc.com/support.

      • If you do not use a variable, delete the line. Do not leave unused lines in the JCL.

      • To determine the version number, see the information on the Home page of Installation System space.

      • The data sets created by the JCL should not already exist.
  3. Submit the JCL to perform the download.

  4. Continue to Decompressing the Installation System image.
