This space provides the same content as before, but the organization of the home page has changed. The content is now organized based on logical branches instead of legacy book titles. We hope that the new structure will help you quickly find the content that you need.

Sample library

This library provides macros, sample JCL, and sample user exit routines.

The members in the sample library contain:

  • Sample JCL that can be edited and submitted to perform specified functions

  • Macros that are referenced during assembly of user-written services

  • Sample user exit routines

Your site can have several sample libraries, including a distributed version and one or more site-customized versions. Some members are for more than one product and some members are product specific.


During the installation and customization process, you select whether to use runtime libraries or SMP/E libraries. If you use runtime libraries, your customized library names will start with BMC. If you use SMP/E libraries, your customized library names will start with BB, UBB, or TOSZ. A few library names start with IBB or SBB for runtime or SMP/E libraries.

Throughout the MainView documentation, the BB*, UBB*, and TOSZ* data set names are used even if the actual library names start with BMC*.


BBSAMP is a distributed target library that is created during product installation.


This version of the sample library should never be modified. Subsequent SMP maintenance will overwrite any changes that you make. The distributed name is used in this guide for reference only.


UBBSAMP contains copies of members from the distributed sample library. This customized library is created automatically by MainView Customization, or you can create it manually.

Use the UBBSAMP data set to make any changes to sample members that are described in this guide or to make changes to meet your site’s needs.
