Review the following requirements prior to installing
CA Datacom Server:
The hardware requirements for the mainframe portion of the
CA Datacom Serverare as follows:
- Requires an IBM or compatible mainframe computer.
- Is distributed by electronic delivery through CA CSM, from theBroadcomOnline.
The software requirements for
CA Datacom Serverare as follows:
- CA Datacom/DBVersion 14.0 or Version 15.x with the SQL Option must be installed.The Multi-User Facility that supports aCA Datacom Servermust be active for theCA Datacom Serverto run and must contain the following SYSIN statement in its startup job:DATACOM DTCMSRVR
- A version of z/OS as supported by IBM.
- SMP/E Release 1.8.1 or later must be installed prior to installation.
- If you are installing the UNIX System Services (USS) component, you must have IBM USS installed.
- If you are installing the USS component, you must have at least JRE 6 installed on USS.CA Datacom Server15.x is incompatible with any previous Java Runtime Environments.
- The CA Common Services for z/OS components that are used by this product are the following:
- CAICCI is required on the mainframe if implementing CCI communication. However, CAICCI (CCIPCSSL) is optional on a client except when using CCI communication.
- CAIENF (required)
- CAIRIM (required), and its subcomponent CA LMP
- CAISSF (required if security validation will be utilized, otherwise, CAISSF is optional)
- When running with CA ACF2, CA Top Secret, or IBM RACF, the server must be set up to communicate with the external security package.
CA Common Services for z/OS
CA Common Services for z/OS is a group of system services that protect your investment in products by helping you manage your data center more efficiently. Each service provided by CA Common Services for z/OS offers individual benefits. The following components are used with this product:
- CAICCI letsCA Datacom/DBproducts work together across platforms.
- CAIENF, CAIRIM, and CA LMP assist you in getting your products running and keeping them running.
- CAISSF enables your products to offer standardized security interfaces.
CAICCI, CAI Common Communications Interface, enables CA products to communicate with one another. This facility provides a layer that isolates application software from the specifics of the communications environment. Some of the features include:
- Single point of control
- Multiple platform support
- Performance optimization
- Peer-to-peer (program-to-program) communication
- Parallel conversations
- Dynamic installation configuration
- Ease of customization
- Error handling
The CAI Event Notification Facility (CAIENF) is an operating system interface service that offers a simple and flexible approach for CA products to obtain data from z/OS. By centralizing operating system interfaces within CAIENF, many features that were formerly available within a single product can be shared across the entire product line. CAIENF features include the following:
- Dynamic installation and reconfiguration
- True recovery from system or individual power outages
- High performance asynchronous processing
- Single interface between CA products and operating system data
- Built-in diagnostic aids
- Ease of customization
- Exploitation of relational database technology
The CAI Resource Initialization Manager (CAIRIM) is the common driver for a collection of dynamic initialization routines that eliminate the need for user SVCs, SMF exits, subsystems, and other installation requirements commonly encountered when installing system software. CAIRIM features include the following:
- Obtaining SMF data
- Verification of proper software installation
- Installation of z/OS interfaces
- Automatic startup of CA and other vendor products
- Proper timing and order of initialization
The CA License Management Program (CA LMP) provides a standardized and automated approach to the tracking of licensed software. It uses common real-time enforcement software to validate user configuration. CA LMP reports on activities related to the license, usage, and financials of your CA products. CA LMP features include the following:
- Common key data set that can be shared among many CPUs
- Check digits detects errors in transcribing key information
- Execution keys you can enter without affecting any CA product already running
- No special maintenance requirements
The CAI Standard Security Facility (CAISSF) allows CA products to offer standardized security interfaces without regard to the particular needs of underlying access control software. CAISSF offers user authentication and resource access validation facilities, and can interface with CA security products (CA ACF2 or CA Top Secret) or compatible non-CA security products.
For CA security products, CAISSF features include the following:
- A single security mechanism
- Isolation of CA products from CA or vendor mechanisms
For non-CA security products, CAISSF features include the following:
- Resource class translation
- Access level translation
- Selective logging of requests
- Request type control
- Message support for failed access
CA LMP Tracks Licensed Software
CA Datacom Serverrequires CA LMP to initialize correctly. CA LMP provides a standardized and automated approach to the tracking of licensed software.
The DATACOM startup option specifies the licensed CA products that will execute with this Multi-User Facility. These features will be verified as licensed for execution by CA LMP.
Examine the CA LMP Key Certificate you received with your product installation package. The certificate contains the following information:
- Product NameSpecifies the trademarked or registered name of the product licensed for the designated site and CPUs.
- SupplementSpecifies the reference number (in the formatnnnnnn - nnn) of your license for the particular product. This format differs slightly inside and outside of North America, and in some cases may not be provided at all.
- Expiration DateSpecifies the date (month dd, yyyy, as in July 10, 2007) your license for this product expires.
- Technical ContactSpecifies the name of the technical contact at your site who is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the designated product. CA addresses all CA LMP correspondence to this person.
- MIS DirectorSpecifies the name of the Director of MIS or the person who performs that function at the site. If the title, but not the name of the person, is indicated on the Certificate, supply the actual name when correcting and verifying the Certificate.
- CPU LocationSpecifies the address of the building where the CPU is installed.
- Execution KeySpecifies an encrypted code required by CA LMP for product initialization. During installation, it is referred to as the LMP Code.
- Product CodeSpecifies the two-character code that corresponds to this particular product.
- CPU IDIdentifies the specific CPU for which installation of your product is valid.
How the CA LMP Execution Key is Defined
The CA LMP execution key, provided on the Key Certificate, must be added to the CAIRIM parameters to ensure proper initialization of all CA products. To define a CA LMP execution key to the CAIRIM parameters, modify member KEYS in the OPTLIB data set. Parameter structure for member KEYS appears following:
PROD(pp) DATE(ddmmmyy) CPU(tttt-mmmm/ssssss) LMPCODE(kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk)
- ppSpecifies the two-character product code. For any given CA LMP product, this code agrees with the product code already in use by the CAIRIM initialization parameters for earlier genlevels of the product.
- ddmmmyySpecifies the CA LMP licensing agreement expiration date.
- tttt-mmmmSpecifies the CPU type and model (for example, 3090-600) on which the CA LMP product will run. If the CPU type, model, or both require less than four characters, blank spaces are inserted for the unused characters.
- ssssssSpecifies the serial number of the CPU on which the CA LMP product will run.
- kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkSpecifies the execution key needed to run the CA LMP product. The CA LMP execution key is provided on the Key Certificate shipped with each CA LMP product.
In this example of a control card for the CA LMP execution software parameter, the execution key value is invalid and provided
as an example only.
PROD(YT) DATE(15JAN07) CPU(3090-600 /370623) LMPCODE(52H2K06130Z7RZD6)
For a description of the procedure for defining the CA LMP execution key to the CAIRIM parameters, see the CA Common Services for z/OS Getting Started documentation.
