Re:Pro's & Con's of Multiple Target and DLIB Zones in SMP/E

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Aug 24, 2007
Hello All:

for those of you that have installed IDMS over the years I would like to
hear your opinions regarding multiple TGT & DLIB Zones in the IDMS CSI.

Background Information, I have recently picked up a new client that has
17
Central Versions, currently they are running IDMS 16.0 SP1 and I am
going to
upgrade them to SP5 to take advantage of some of the additional features
provided with SP2 and above such as High Speed Storage Protection.

What they have in place is one CSI with one GLOBAL Zone and 17 unique
TGT &
DLIB zones, one TGT & DLIB for each Central Version, but, all 17 of the
Central versions are exactly the same, there is nothing specila about
one or the
other, they all use the same SVC, the same RHDOPTF (optional APAR) the
same
RHDCSRTT (except for the environment name) the same RHDCUXIT, as far as
I can
tell there is no difference in any of the systems.

So, I am asking your opinion of the 17 unique TGT & DLIB zones in
SMP/E.

"Bill-

I personally like multiple TGT and DLIB zones... one to likewise correspond
to every set of run-time loadlibs you have.
Does this mean they use 17 uniquely-named IDMS system-software run-time
loadlibs, too?
That would seem to be bit excessive.
When they roll-out maintenance, does it have to be one CV at a time or can
you hit multiple CV's at a time.
Perhaps you could consolidate and use loadlib alias names to point to a much
smaller subset of the 17.

"We do things similar, but it's not the KISS method. (In our case, I
don't know what a KISS method would be :( )

We have 2 sets of CV's - 1 large and 1 small. Each of them has their
own CALC exit. Thus whenever we need to apply maintenance to IDMSDBMS,
IDMSTMGR or IDMSUTIL it involves backing out all previous maintenance,
applying all maintenance using the small CV exit. Then, once tested on
the small systems, Backout all the maintenance again and re-apply all
maintenance using the large CV exit.

First time I applied maintenance here, I applied it to the system using
the small CV exit resulting in indexes with 2 SR-7 records and other
horrid problems.

There has got to be a better way.
