4. Download and MSHP INSTALL all 
Datacom Server
 - VSE 11.0 Maintenance.
    a. Review the published solutions from the Maintenance Grid for z/VSE.
    b. Look for 
Datacom Server
 Option (DBSRV) 11.0.  
    c. Click on SP0 in column ‘PTFs Available’.  
        This brings you to a page where you can download the published solutions.
5. Change the MUF startup JCL  
Do this by adding option 
        DATACOM DTCMSRVR CA-DATACOM/SERVER  
The MUF requires a SYSIPT statement in its startup job to identify each of the 
Datacom
 products and options it is operating. 
If a product or option is omitted from the list in the startup SYSIPT, the MUF does not permit the omitted product or option access to 
Datacom/DB
.
Verify that you also have enough free tasks available in the running MUF. When you start Datacom Server in step 7 you need a number of MUF tasks dedicated to this server as coded in Datacom Server SVDBSPR startup card DBUSERS. If there are not enough free tasks, then increase the number of tasks in DBMUFPR TASKS with the number of needed Server tasks.   
6. Recycle the Multi-User.  
7. Configure Datacom Server and start it.
8. Download the latest 
Datacom Server
 Windows 11.0 solution RO69962, rename it to RO69962.EXE and run it.
 This installs 
Datacom Server
 PC which you then configure as documented in the 
Datacom Server
 User Guide
 under:
    • Chapter 4: ODBC Driver Implementation and Configuration
    • Chapter 5: JDBC Driver Implementation and Configuration
