Allocating the MVI common registry with BBSAMP members HFSALLOC and ZFSALLOC

You can use one of the following members as a model for allocating and mounting the MVI common registry file system:
  • HFSALLOC to allocate and mount an HFS file system

  • ZFSALLOC to allocate and mount a zFS file system

To allocate the MVI common registry file system

  1. Copy the appropriate BBSAMP member (HFSALLOC or ZFSALLOC) to your UBBSAMP data set.
  2. Modify HFSALLOC or ZFSALLOC as described in the member.
  3. Save the modified member and submit the job.
  4. Repeat these steps for each file system that you want to allocate.

Where to go from here

Before you can use the allocated file system, you must perform the following tasks:

  • Mount the file system (HFS or zFS) on the operating system.

    You must add a MOUNT statement to the BPXPRMxx member in SYS1.PARMLIB. The MOUNT statement will mount the file system on subsequent IPLs.

  • Identify a mount point for the file system to each CAS.

    You must use the Plex Manager HFSPATH view to identify the mount point. For more information, see the Managing the MainView Infrastructure common registry.
