Installation information for z/OS system programmers

If you are a system programmer, use this information to supplement the SMP/E installation information.

PARMLIB changes

Use commands to set APF authorizations and modify PARMLIB definitions.

Refer to MVS Initialization and Tuning Reference (SA22-7592) for more information about the PARMLIB definitions listed in this section. Refer to MVS System Commands (SA22-7627) for more information about sample console commands.

Set z/OS UNIX limits in BPXPRMxx

If you are installing the IBM Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) ISPF client, the ISPF daemon requires a large address space size for proper operation. Set one of the following variables:
MAXASSIZE
Set the value of the MAXASSIZE variable in PARMLIB member BPXPRMxx to 2GB, which is the maximum value allowed. MAXASSIZE specifies the maximum address space (process) region size. This is a system-wide limit that is set for all z/OS UNIX address spaces. If you do not want to set a system-wide limit, set the limit for the ISPF client only, as described in the next action.
ASSIZEMAX
Set the value of the ASSIZEMAX variable of the OMVS segment for the user ID STCISPF or another user ID for the ISPF Daemon started task to 2GB, which provides the ISPF daemon the required region size, regardless of changes to MAXASSIZE.

LNKLST definitions in PROGxx

For the EWM ISPF client to operate properly, the library hlq.SBLZAUTH, which contains the BLZPASTK module, must be made available through the LNKLST definition.

LNKLST data sets are defined in PARMLIB member PROGxx, if your site followed IBM recommendations.

The following example shows the required definition:
LNKLST ADD NAME(listname) DSNAME(hlq.SBLZAUTH) VOLUME(volser)
where listname is the name of the LNKLST set being activated, hlq is the high-level qualifier you used during SMP/E installation, and volser is the volume on which the data set resides if it is not cataloged in the master catalog.
LNKLST definitions can be created dynamically (until the next IPL) using the following console commands,
  • SETPROG LNKLST DEFINE,NAME=LLTMP,COPYFROM=CURRENT
  • SETPROG LNKLST ADD NAME=LLTMP,DSN=hlq.SBLZAUTH,VOL=volser
  • SETPROG LNKLST ACTIVATE,NAME=LLTMP

Run the console command SETPROG LNKLST,UPDATE,JOB=* to update an address space so that a specified job or jobs associated with that space can use the current LNKLST set.

APF authorizations in PROGxx

For Job Monitor to access JES spool files, the following must be APF-authorized:
  • Modules BLZJMON and BLZENF70 in the hlq.SBLZAUTH load library, where hlq is the high-level qualifier you used during SMP/E installation.
  • The Language Environment® (LE) runtime libraries (CEE.SCEERUN*)

APF authorizations are defined in SYS1.PARMLIB(PROGxx), if your site follows IBM recommendations.

You can set APF authorizations dynamically with the following console commands:
  • SETPROG APF,ADD,DSN=hlq.SBLZAUTH,SMS
  • SETPROG APF,ADD,DSN=CEE.SCEERUN,VOL=volser
  • SETPROG APF,ADD,DSN=CEE.SCEERUN2,VOL=volser
where hlq is the high-level qualifier you used during SMP/E installation, and volser is the volume on which the data set resides if it is not SMS-managed.
Note: If the ISPF client is being installed, then the hlq.SBLZAUTH data set must be added to the LNKLST as previously mentioned. If your site automatically APF authorizes LNKLST data sets, then it may not be necessary to implicitly APF authorize the hlq.SBLZAUTH data set.

AUTHPGM definitions in IKJTSOxx

In addition to the load library containing program BLZPASTK being added to the LNKLST, the program itself must be added to the authorized TSO command list in parmlib member IKJTSOxx.

The following example shows the required definition, assuming that IEBCOPY is already in the AUTHPGM list:
AUTHPGM NAMES(IEBCOPY,BLZPASTK)

TCP/IP ports

Jazz Team Server and the other components on z/OS use the following TCP/IP ports. Notify your firewall and TCP/IP administrators about the ports that are relevant to your installation.
Miscellaneous component ports (non-server ports)
5555
This port is the default port for the Rational® Build Agent. If there are multiple build agents, there are multiple ports.
4152
This port is the default port for the ISPF daemon.
6716
If you use the sample configuration file included with the Engineering Workflow Management SMP/E package, this port is the default port for the Job Monitor.
WebSphere® Application Server and WebSphere Liberty profile server ports
Typically, you configure the WebSphere Application Server ports when you configure the application server.
