Logging on to MainView SRM

Use the following procedure to start the MainView SRM product through a TSO terminal session, or through a VTAM or EXCP session.


If you prefer to start the product through a MainView Explorer session, see the Using MainView products.

Before you begin

Check with your product administrator to ensure that the coordinating address space (CAS) and product address space (PAS) have been started. For successful operation, MainView SRM requires the CAS, the PAS, and your user address space (UAS).

If you need to start them, see the MainView Administration Guide for CAS and PAS startup instructions.

To log on to MainView SRM

  1. Access the MainView Selection Menu by executing the MainView CLIST in one of the following ways:
    • If your ISPF main panel contains an option for MainView products, select that option.

    • On the COMMAND line, issue the TSO MainView command to execute the MainView CLIST. (MainView is a CLIST that you or your product administrator created during MainView Customization.)

    • Start a VTAM or EXCP MainView Alternate Access terminal session that executes the MainView CLIST. For more information, see the MainView Alternate Access Implementation and User Guide.

    The next panel that is displayed depends on an installation option. If the installer set up the MainView CLIST to use a specific connection, the MainView Selection Menu is displayed.

    If you need help with the CAS ID, consult your MainView System Services product administrator.

    • If the displayed screen is one that your product administrator created, type EZSRM on the COMMAND line to see the MainView SRM Easy Menu (Figure 5 on page 21), or you can type the appropriate view name on the COMMAND line and press Enter.
