Enabling zIIP processing in supported BMC utilities
The SSI component is automatically authorized when you authorize the DB2, IMS, or VSAM component. The PSS component is automatically authorized when you authorize the DB2 or IMS component. The zIIP component does not require separate authorization.
The XBM components that you authorize and the passwords that you need depend on the features of XBM that you are implementing.
The following table describes how to authorize different features of XBM.

Use the solution-level password to authorize the SSI component of XBM.
The zIIP component of XBM is authorized when you use any of the other XBM or SUF passwords. No separate authorization is required.
