Managing cross-system communication between BBI-SS PASs

This topic describes how to manage VTAM communication between BBI-SS PASs located on different system images.

Tip

The information in this topic applies to the following products only:

  • MainView AutoOPERATOR

  • MainView FOCAL POINT

  • MainView for CICS

  • MainView for DB2

  • MainView for DBCTL

  • MainView for IMS Online

  • MainView for MQ

The figure in Managing cross-system communication illustrates VTAM links that enable MainView products in a BBI-SS PAS on one system image to communicate with products on another system image.

To start, stop, and display communication links between BBI-SS PASs, issue one of the following BBI control commands from a terminal session, a MainView AutoOPERATOR EXEC, or an operator's console:

  • .START LINK
  • .STOP LINK
  • .DISPLAY LINK

The following table summarizes the use of these commands.

Logs status of all or specified communications links to this BBI-SS PAS

START|S

LINK|L

STOP|P

LINK|L

ALL| ssid

Stops communications link between the BBI-SS PAS subsystem and the current BBI-SS PAS or all available BBI-SS PASs and the current BBI-SS PAS

To use these BBI control commands, use the following guidelines:

  • For command notation shown in table above, conventions are as follows:

    • Command and keyword abbreviations are shown as an alternate choice as indicated by a vertical line between them.

    • The symbolic word, ssid, represents a one- to four-character BBI subsystem ID.

  • For command syntax, use the following conventions:

    • Use a blank between commands and keywords.

    • Use an equal sign, blank, or comma between keywords and parameters.

See BBI control commands for further information about the use of BBI control commands.
