Allocate MainView Infrastructure common registry

The MainView Infrastructure (MVI) common registry requires a UNIX System Services (USS) HFS or zFS file system. The MVI common registry stores information for Alarm Management, deployment, and user preferences.


This task is required for all products.


In previous releases, the file system for the MVI common registry was allocated as the Alarm Management file system. If you already have a file system allocated for use by Alarm Management, you do not need to allocate a new file system.

This task assumes that you are familiar with z/OS UNIX System Services (or have access to someone who is). For information about UNIX System Services, see the following IBM documentation:

  • UNIX System Services z/OS Implementation Guide

  • z/OS Distributed File Service zFS Administration

  • z/OS UNIX System Services Planning
