This page provides details of what's new in HCM for z/OS V1R11.
New HCM installation process
The installation process for HCM has changed. The code is delivered as an MSI package and is installed using the Windows® Installer.
New location of the HCM INI file
The location of the EEQHCM.INI file changed from C:\WINDOWS to the user-specific application data directory. HCM creates separate versions of this file, if multiple users are working on the same workstation. Each user can thus take advantage of his own preferred session settings.
Due to changes in the user authorization methods for Windows XP and later versions, the change of the location is necessary to allow users who are not administrators to update this file.
HCM supports the Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6), which you can use when establishing a communication session with HCD.
Handling multi-user access enabled IODFs
HCM lets you load a multi-user access (MUA) enabled IODF from HCD into a new HCM configuration file and lets you also open an existing HCM configuration associated with a MUA enabled IODF. You can use the viewing and reporting features of HCM on such configurations and you may perform physical changes. However, you cannot update the associated IODF.
