Installing the Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA Software

This section provides information and step-by-step instructions for installing Oracle Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA software (hereafter referenced as TMA SNA.) After completing the tasks included in “Preparing to Install Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA,” install the TMA SNA components according to your configuration requirements as described in the following section.

Notes: Refer to the Oracle Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA Release Notes if you are upgrading from a previous version of eLink Adapter for Mainframe, and for information about hardware and software requirements. For additional operational and administrative information on the CRM, refer to the Oracle Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA CRM Administration Guide.
Note: All references to ATMI files, functions, and documentation apply to Tuxedo files, functions, and documentation.

Information topics are grouped by platform and by component (Gateway or CRM) if the component installations differ for particular platforms.

This section includes the following topics:

 


Prerequisites for Installation

Before you install Oracle Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA, you should install Tuxedo.

A JDK is required by the InstallAnywhere installation product to install Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA. A JDK is installed with Tuxedo. Verify that the system PATH environment variable is set to the correct version of the JDK installed by Tuxedo.

 


Installing the CRM on z/OS MVS Platform

This section explains how to install the CRM component on a z/OS Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) platform.

Note: The installation process assumes the installer is familiar with Job Control Language (JCL) job operations and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) functions.

Summary of Installation Tasks

The following list is a summary of the tasks detailed in Installation Procedure:

The installation for this environment is semi-automated. Three JCL files are provided to facilitate prerequisites for allocating datasets in the MVS environment and to unload Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA product software into the allocated datasets.

The product installer contains the following files relating to this installation procedure:

Installation Procedure

Perform the following steps to install the CRM component on a z/OS MVS platform:

  1. Load the product on a machine that has File Transfer Protocol (FTP) access to the MVS UNIX directory (/mvs/ftp-unix) or MVS NT directory (/mvs.ftp-nt).
  2. Use FTP to put the following JCL files in the MVS destination PDS dataset:
  3. createds.jcl
    uncmprss.jcl

    In your MVS environment, change the CREATEDS job to suit your environment. This job allocates the initial datasets needed to receive the product software files from the FTP file transfer and the SNACRM Load Library, sample and data datasets.

    Use the SET statements in the CREATEDS job to set the high-level qualifiers of the receiving datasets according to the following syntax:

    SET TMPPDS=[QUALIFIER]

    In this statement, [QUALIFIER] is the high-level qualifier for initial datasets need to receive the product software files.

    SET HLQPDSE=[QUALIFIER]

    In this statement, [QUALIFIER] is the high-level qualifier for the SNACRM Load Library. The load library containing the TMACRM.LOAD program objects must be a Partitioned Dataset with Extended attributes (PDSE). The PDSE minimally must have storage class SMS declaration for z/OS.

    SET SCLASS=[CLASS NAME]

    In this statement, [CLASS NAME] is the storage class name of the PDSE. This is required for z/OS.

    SET HLQPDS=[QUALIFIER]

    In this statement, [QUALIFIER] is the high-level qualifier for the sample and data datasets. These are standard PDS.

    The CREATEDS job has the following steps:

    DELETE

    Deletes any existing datasets previously created so you can run this JCL multiple times, if necessary.

    CREATE

    Allocates the initial datasets needed to receive the product software files and the SNACRM Load Library, sample and data datasets.

  4. Run the CREATEDS job.
  5. Put the files listed in Table 4-1 into their corresponding datasets. Use the table as a worksheet and fill in the names you created in step 3. Use the worksheet as a guide for transferring the product data to the z/OS platform.
  6. Table 4-1 MVS Installation Product Files and DD Name Datasets

    Your Dataset Name

    TMPHLQ
    .LOAD
    TMACRM.DATA
    TMPHLQ
    .DATA
    TMACRM.SAMPLE
    TMPHLQ
    .SAMPLE

    Use Table 4-2 as a worksheet to fill out the names of the datasets created for SNACRM Load Library, sample and data.

    Set Statement
    Your Dataset Name
    HLQPDSE
    .LOAD
    HLQPDS
    .DATA
    HLQPDS
    .SAMPLE

  7. From the UNIX/NT command prompt, set binary data transfer mode using the FTP program.
  8. Note the following example of a put command:

    put TMACRM.LOAD ’TMPHLQ.LOAD’

    Transfer the datasets using the put command.

  9. In your MVS environment, change the UNCMPRSS job to suit your environment.
  10. Modify the following variables in the JCL to the high-level qualifier you listed in the tables according to the following syntax:

    <PRODHLQ>=[QUALIFIER]

    Use the qualifier you listed in Table 4-1.

    <BEAPDSE>=[QUALIFIER]

    Use the PDSE qualifier you listed in Table 4-2.

    <BEAPDS>=[QUALIFIER]

    Use the PDS qualifier you listed in Table 4-2.

    The UNCMPRSS job has the following step:

    UNLOLD 

    Performs a TSORECEIVE to uncompress and unload the data in your installation datasets created in step 8.

To manually perform the TSO RECEIVE command to unload the data in your installation datasets created in Step 8, enter a command similar to the following command:

TSO RECEIVE INDS(‘xxx’)

When prompted, enter:

DA(‘yyy’)

In these statements, the following definitions apply:

xxx

Is the dataset name you listed in Table 4-1.

yyy

Is the corresponding dataset name you listed in Table 4-2.

 


Installing the Gateway

Unix installations may be performed in Console Mode, Silent Mode, or Graphics Mode, while Windows installations must be performed in Graphics Mode.

Installing the Gateway in Console Mode

Perform the following steps to install the Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA software in console mode:

  1. Log on as root.
  2. $ su -
    Password:
  3. Execute the appropriate installation program for your operating system in character-based mode. For example, execute the AIX program to install only the Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter for SNA Gateway:
  4. # sh <installer>.bin -i console
  5. The installation program runs and prompts you for responses (see Listing 4-1 for an example).
