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

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

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

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

"We assemble/link all CV-specific modules outside of SMP/E. Also
anything customized inhouse or by a third-party vendor. This has its
own set of headaches, but it does keep the SMP/E part nice and simple.
