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.


You use the Installation System to install and maintain most 

BMC AMI Cost products, BMC AMI Data for Db2 products, BMC AMI Data for IMS products, BMC AMI Ops products, and BMC AMI Security products
. After gathering information, the Installation System generates all of the jobs that you need to install your products.

Use the following task map as a quick reference for understanding the Installation System and completing an installation. For more information, use the links in the table below the figure or go to  Installation System .

Using the BMC Installation System to install the R+/CHANGE ACCUM product generates a customized installation data set. This data set contains all jobs required to install R+/CHANGE ACCUM into your specific DB2 environment. One of these jobs is used to establish the default processing option values for the R+/CHANGE ACCUM online interface and the MODIFY ACCUM program. The member name is $C30DOPT.


R+/CHANGE ACCUM is installed automatically when you install BMC AMI Recover. However, to be operational, R+/CHANGE ACCUM requires its own password or a Recovery Management password.

The $C30DOPT member of the installation data set contains a job that assembles an options macro that establishes the installation values for R+/CHANGE ACCUM.

When you submit the generated job containing the installation options, it assembles and links this option macro call to create the ACA$OPT load module. This module resides in the APF-authorized library that you designated during installation. If you modify any of the values in the installation options after installing R+/CHANGE ACCUM, you must rerun the installation job for these changes to take effect.

The R+/CHANGE ACCUM batch program uses the BMC AMI Recover installation options module that is created during the installation of BMC AMI Recover.
