Installing

Review the steps to acquire, install, deploy, and configure your product.
Standard SMP/E installation and maintenance best practices are used to install and maintain
Broadcom
mainframe z/OS products. The installation process includes all the tasks that are typically performed by a systems programmer to acquire the products and make them ready for use in a production environment. 
You can install
Broadcom
mainframe product software using IBM z/OSMF,
CA CSM
, or native SMP/E batch processing.
z/OSMF installation is
not
available for every product.
z/OSMF and
CA CSM
are intuitive web-based tools that automate and simplify many installation activities on z/OS systems. These applications also make obtaining and applying corrective, preventive, and recommended maintenance easier.
The following graphic provides a high-level overview of the installation process for
Broadcom
mainframe products:
This image shows the workflow for a system programmer to prepare for installation by addressing prerequisite software, security, and other requirements; and then acquire, install, and configure products and maintenance using z/OSMF, CA CSM, or native SMP/E JCL.
These steps are described in the following procedure:
  1. Prepare for the installation by reviewing best practices and verifying that the software, hardware, security, and other installation requirements have been met.
  2. Acquire the product software using
    one
    of the following methods:
    • From
      Broadcom Support
      , download a z/OSMF (filename.zOSMF.pax.Z) or classic SMP/E JCL (filename.pax.Z) package.
      Only one can be selected.
      If a z/OSMF package is not available, select the SMP/E JCL package. A z/OSMF package is
      not
      available for all products.
    • From
      CA CSM
      , select a classic SMP/E JCL package from the product list.
      You cannot acquire a z/OSMF portable software instance from
      CA CSM
      .
  3. Perform an SMP/E installation to install the product software using
    one
    of the following methods:
    • If you downloaded a z/OSMF package from
      Broadcom Support
      , install using z/OSMF Deployments.
    • If you downloaded a classic SMP/E JCL package from
      Broadcom Support
      , use
      either
      of the following options:
      • Install using native SMP/E JCL
      • Install using
        CA CSM
    • If you downloaded a classic SMP/E JCL package from
      CA CSM
      , start the installation process from the
      SMP/E Environments
      tab in
      CA CSM
      .
  4. Install maintenance using z/OSMF Software Update, SMP/E JCL, or
    CA CSM
    .
    Use
    to download and receive maintenance. This service lets you acquire maintenance on demand and to schedule an SMP/E job to run as needed. The
    can reduce hours of maintenance time to just minutes, making your system programmers more productive and allowing them to focus on higher value tasks. Migrate existing CSIs to z/OSMF and use z/OSMF Software Update to manage software updates.
  5. Finalize the installation:
    • Configure your product.
    • Deploy your product.
    For these tasks, use the methods that your product supports and in the preferred sequence per your site.
