Acquire the Products Using Pax-ESD

To acquire the product software for the productgroup using Pax-ESD, set up a UNIX System Services (USS) file system. Then, download (FTP) the pax file. When the download is complete, you are ready to install the products to create the SMP/E environment.
To acquire the product software for the

 using Pax-ESD, set up a UNIX System Services (USS) file system. Then, download (FTP) the pax file. When the download is complete, you are ready to install the products to create the SMP/E environment.
Allocate and Mount a File System
We recommend that you allocate and mount a file system that is dedicated to the product acquisition. We also recommend that you create a directory in this file system that will house the pax file. The product installation process requires a USS directory to receive the pax file and to perform the unpack steps.
This procedure describes how to perform the following tasks:
  • Allocate a zFS
  • Create a mount point in an existing maintenance directory of your choice in USS.
  • Mount the file system on the newly created mount point.
     You must have SUPERUSER authority or the required SAF profile setting so you can issue the USS mount command for the file system.
  • Optionally, permit write access to anyone in the same group as the person who created the directory.
     USS commands are case-sensitive.
Follow these steps:
  1. Allocate the zFS. Sample JCL follows that you can customize with your zFS data set name, storage class, and primary and secondary cylinder values.
    //SYSIN DD *
    ) +
    ) +
    LINEAR +
    primary secondary
    ) +
    // PARM=(' -aggregate
    - compat')
    The zFS is allocated.
     Ensure that the zFS data set name that you use conforms to your data set naming conventions for USS file systems. If the allocation of the file system data set fails, it is because of environmental settings not allowing for the allocation.
  2. Create a mount point for the zFS file system. This example shows how to create your USS pax directory named /CA/CAPAX in the existing u/maint directory. From the TSO OMVS shell, enter the following commands:
    cd /u/maint/
    mkdir CA
    cd CA
    mkdir CAPAX
     Further references to this mount point appear as 
    The mount point is created.
  3. Mount the file system. Sample JCL follows for you to customize:
    MOUNT FILESYSTEM('your_zFS_data_set_name')
    The file system is mounted.
  4. (Optional) Set security permissions for the directory. You can use the chmod command to let other users access the USS pax directory and its files. For example, to allow write access to the USS pax directory for other users in your USS group, enter the following command from the TSO OMVS shell:
    chmod -R 775 /
    Note: For more information about the chmod command, see the IBM 
    z/OS UNIX System Services User Guide
    Write access is granted.
Download the Product Package
To begin the 
CA Technologies
 product installation procedure, copy the product pax file into the USS directory that you set up.
FTP procedures vary due to local firewall and other security settings. To determine the appropriate FTP procedure to use at your site, consult your local network administrators.
This procedure explains how to transfer a product pax file from CA Support Online to the mainframe.
 The product pax file contains all the 
CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS
. You only need to download and unpack this file once.
Follow these steps:
  1. Confirm the following UNIX System Services (USS) requirements:
    • You have write authority to the USS directories that are used for the pax installation process.
    • You have available USS file space.
       In the file system that contains the pax directories, you also need free space approximately 3.5 times the pax file size to download the pax file and unpack its contents. For example, to download and unpack a 14 MB pax file, you need approximately 49 MB of free space in the file system hosting your pax directory.
      If you do not have sufficient free space, error messages similar to the following appear:
      EZA1490I Error writing to data set
      EZA2606W File I/O error 133
  2. Log in to Broadcom Support Online.
  3. Select 
  4. Locate your product in the download management tool.
    Your product entry opens at the 
    Product Downloads
     tab. Based on your selection, the Product Downloads Available and Solutions Downloads Available are displayed by solution group. For example, DB2 Administration, DB2 Performance, DB2 Utilities, and DB2 Recovery.
  5. Locate the appropriate software package.
     To change the release, select the package and use the release drop-down.
    If applicable, agree to the end user license agreement (EULA).
  6. Select a download method: 
    Review the online help for more information about the download methods and locations.
    • If you select 
      Enhanced Download Manager
      , a dialog opens. Follow the prompts to download the installer.
      The installer then downloads your product files to the location on your PC, as specified in the installer. Go to Step 8.
    • If you select 
      , you are redirected to 
      Cart History
      You receive an email notification when your files are ready. The email includes a link to your 
      Cart History
      . Go to Step 7.

  7. Select 
    next to your package in
     Cart History
    • Your FTP download details appear including hostname, username, and password. 
       To find the file names with the package, click 
      FTP via Browser
    • Download the shopping cart file to your workstation.
  8. If you downloaded a zip file, unzip the file to prepare the product pax files for use.
    The pax file is ready for FTP.
     change the format of the pax.Z.
  9. FTP the pax.Z files in binary mode to your mainframe USS file system.
    Sample FTP commands from a Windows command prompt are provided in the following steps.
    1. Open a Windows command prompt.
      The command prompt appears.
    2. Customize and enter the following FTP commands:
      lcd C:\PC\
      cd /
      • mainframe
        Specifies the z/OS system IP address or DNS name.
      • userid
        Specifies your z/OS user ID.
      • password
        Specifies your z/OS password.
      • C:
        Specifies the location of the pax file on your PC.
        If you specify a location that has blanks or special characters in the path name, enclose that value in double quotation marks.
      • yourUSSpaxdirectory
        Specifies the name of the USS directory that you use for pax downloads.
      • paxfile
        Specifies the name of the pax file to upload.
    The pax file is transferred to the mainframe. Go to Install the Products Using Pax-ESD to create a product directory from the pax file and prepare the SMP/E environment.
