Managing the MainView Infrastructure common registry

This section explains how to mount, identify, activate, and manage a MainView Infrastructure common registry file system.


In previous releases, the file system for the MainView Infrastructure common registry was known as the Alarm Management file system.

The MainView Infrastructure common registry is used to store information for such features as Alarm Management, deployment, and user preferences.

The common registry requires a UNIX System Services (USS) HFS or zFS file system. The file system is allocated during customization by using the Installation System or manually following the procedure in Manual customization.

The common registry must also be mounted to the operating systems and identified to the CASs.

You can have one or more common registries: one per CAS or one that is shared among the CASs in a sysplex.
