Import a User Certificate from Broadcom Support Online
To begin the internet service configuration process, register to use the
Common Components and Services
Automated Order Server and import a certificate that identifies you to the server. You must be a registered user on Broadcom Support. The registration process generates a
User Certificate
for you. Certificates have an expiration date. You must obtain a certificate once per year. A single certificate that is generated for you can be used for many PTF and HOLDDATA orders. SMP/E notifies you when the certificate is about to expire to remind you to obtain a new one.

Upload the certificates from your workstation to z/OS.
  1. Upload the certificates as text data to your z/OS system in RECFM=VB and LRECL>=84 format.

  2. If you use FTP, use the following FTP commands to avoid any truncation:
    ASCII QUOTE SITE WRAP LRECL=84 RECFM=VB PUT cert_file_name 'your.mvs.dataset.name' (REPLACE quit
