Instruction / Steps

Here are instructions for applying an EKG on MVS or VSE: 
When running VSE 
Catalog the new EKG key into the CALMPKEY.A member as the first uncommented line of the file. 
Run this batch job: 
// EXEC CAIRIM 
/* 
~OR~ 
Release a pause into a partition. 
Respond to the paused partition with this command: 
pid EXEC CAIRIM,PARM='EKGP' 
Respond to the next message with a command like this: 
pid EKG(xxxxxxxx) 

When running MVS 
THE EMERGENCY KEY GENERATOR (EKG) CAN BE ACTIVATED IN ONE OF TWO 
METHODS: 
(1) INSERTION OF THE EKG CONTROL CARD AS THE *FIRST* CONTROL CARD IN 
THE KEYS MEMBER. IF EKG IS USED AS A CONTROL CARD, THE FORMAT IS 
AS FOLLOWS: 
EKG(NNNNNNNN) 

WHERE NNNNNNNN IS THE EIGHT BYTE CODE GENERATED FROM THE EKG 
DEVICE. 

*IMPORTANT* THE EKG CONTROL CARD *MUST* BE THE *FIRST* UNCOMMENTED 
*IMPORTANT* CONTROL CARD IN THE KEYS MEMBER TO EXECUTE SUCCESSFULLY. 
*IMPORTANT* THE EKG CONTROL CARD IS NOT CARD COLUMN DEPENDENT. 

(2) PASS THE EKGP PARAMETER TO THE CAS9 STC VIA ""S CAS9,,,EKGP"" OR BY 
MODIFYING THE CAS9 (CAIRIM) STC JCL, ADDING PARM=EKGP ON THE EXEC 
CARD. 
********************** 

Notes: If the machine is z/VM : Edit the CALMP KEYS file and add the EKG key as the first uncommented record.
