Clarifying Instructions for Z/OS Agent installation

It has been brought to our attention that the first two steps may need some clarification, so I have provided them below with notes. The first is locating the first file to put, UCXJM25-???.bin. This file will correlate to something along the lines of UCXJM25-IBM.bin, as the question marks are wildcards for one character each.

1.Transferring files to the host
  • Host
  • Transfer the appropriate files from IMAGE:AGENTS\MVS\ using a file transfer.

    open
     Host
    Use an FTP user with the appropriate rights

    User name = UC4
    Password = <as set>
    bin
    quote site recfm=fb lrecl=80 blksize=6080
    quote site pri=1 sec=1 CY
    put UCXJM25-???.bin 'UC4.UCXJX.WORK'
    asci
    put UCXJM25.ini 'UC4.UCXJM25.INI'
    put UCXEM25.ini 'UC4.UCXEM25.INI'
    quote site recfm=vb lrecl=500 blksize=27998
    put ucx.msl 'UC4.UC.MSL'
    quit

---

The second question is - where does this UCXJM25 file get utilized after the put command?


2.Creating the Load Library
  • Host
  • Create the load library using the utility TSO RECEIVE. Bold printed parameters are system-specific specifications.

    //UC4LOAD JOB (ACCT#),'UC4USER',
    // CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),NOTIFY=UC4USER
    //*************************************************
    //STEP01 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01,DYNAMNBR=30
    //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
    //SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*
    //SYSTSIN DD *
      PROFILE NOPREFIX
      RECEIVE USERID(UC4USER) INDSN('MYDSN.UCXJ.WORK')
      DSNAME('UC4.UCXJM25.LOAD') -
      UNIT(3390) VOLUME(??????)
    /*


    Alternately, you can create it as follows:

    On the z/OS host:
    TSO RECEIVE indsn('MYDSN.UCXJ.WORK')

    Press Enter and type the following line: 
    dsname('UC4.UCXJM25.LOAD')


---

The *WORK file name has to match with the one chosen in step 1. In the example above, this would be:

INDSN('UC4.UCXJX.WORK')

The "TSO RECEIVE" command will extract the set of load modules from that archive. If you have anything additional to add, we'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to post below with anything else that has been noticed during the installation of one of these Agents.
