Defining the connection to BMC AMI Catalog Manager for Db2

Use the following procedure to enable the hyperlinks from BMC AMI Ops Monitor for Db2  views to BMC AMI Catalog Manager for Db2  to display information from Db2 catalog tables. You can define the Catalog Manager  connection during BMC AMI Ops  configuration, or you can do it manually as described in the following procedure.

To define and activate the connection to Catalog Manager

  1. Choose one of the following options:
    • If you defined the connection during BMC AMI Ops  configuration, skip to Step 2.

    • If you did not define the connection during BMC AMI Ops  configuration, complete the following steps:

    1. Manually allocate a hlq.SBBCLIB, and concatenate it to the BBCLIB DD allocation.
    2. Move the customized DMRACT CLIST into hlq.SBBCLIB.

    You must provide the following information from your Catalog Manager  installation:

    • HLQ(cathlq)– cathlq identifies the high-level qualifier of the Catalog Manager  data sets.

    • MVHLQ– the high-level qualifier of the BMC AMI OpsM for Db2  data sets.

    • DOPTS(ACTDOPD1)–ACTDOPD1 is the default options module.

    Note

    No password is required in the Catalog Manager LOAD library for browse access from BMC AMI OpsM for Db2 .

    You can only access Db2s that are in a different LPAR from a User Address Space (UAS) if you have defined DDF connections between your Db2s, and have enabled DDF usage in Catalog Manager .

    Note

    If you have a full license for Catalog Manager , you must add the Catalog Manager password library to the ISPLLIB LIBDEF definition in the DMRACT clist, or copy the password module directly into the HLQ.ACTLINK.

  2. To activate the connection to Catalog Manager , edit member DMRACTR in UBBPARM (original source in member DMRACTR in BBPARM). Specify the Catalog Manager  version number in the first four characters of the line. (For example, version number 12.2 is specified as 1220.)
