z/OSMF z/OS V2R1 Migration Workflow

Introducing another advancement in z/OS migration assistance! z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF) V2.1 contains an infrastructure called Workflow. The migration of z/OS V2.1 has exploited this infrastructure. Using the simplest form of this infrastructure, the z/OS V2.1 Migration book has been moved into a z/OSMF z/OS V2R1 Migration Workflow. 

 

z/OS V2R1 zEnterprise® Data Compression Setup Workflow

IBM zEnterprise® Data Compression (zEDC) is a compression acceleration capability introduced with z/OS V2R1. When you combine zEDC with zEDC Express, a new I/O feature provided on IBM zEnterprise EC12 and IBM zEnterprise BC12, you obtain a compression acceleration solution designed for high performance, low latency compression.

 

BatchPipes - SMF analysis tool

Use the SMF analysis tool to determine whether BatchPipes is right for you. Run this tool on your system's SMF data to produce a report of the estimated time savings you can achieve with BatchPipes. The tool reads SMF record types 14, 15 and 30 (subtypes 1,4 and 5) from your SMF data.
 

FLASHDA

Use the FLASHDA SAS®-based tool to manage your transition to Solid State Drives (SSD); the tool provides DASD and data set usage reports using SAS code to analyze SMF 42 subtype 6 and SMF 74 subtype 5 records to help you identify volumes and datasets that are good candidates to reside on SSD.


Be sure to read the FLASHDA tool description (PDF - 1.68MB).


IBM Configuration Assistant for z/OS Communications Server

IBM Configuration Assistant for z/OS Communications Server provides centralized configuration of AT-TLS, IP Security, NSS, PBR, QoS, and IDS policies.


IBM Encryption Facility for z/OS Client V1.2

The IBM Encryption Facility for z/OS Client V1.2 is composed of two parts:


  • The IBM Java Client enables you to control encryption and decryption of data on platforms other than z/OS or on z/OS systems that do not use the Encryption Services Feature of the IBM Encryption Facility for z/OS V1.1 product. In that way, you can exchange encrypted data between z/OS and non-z/OS platforms when the encrypted data is created through the Encryption Services Feature.

  • The IBM Decryption Client for z/OS allows you to decrypt data that has been created through the Encryption Services Feature. The Decryption Client is installed on z/OS platforms.

Additional information:


Publications are available on the Encryption Facility for z/OS V1.2 bookshelf.


Sample JCL is available to assist you with the following scenarios:

  • Using the Encryption Services feature of the IBM Encryption Facility for z/OS product to encrypt an MVS dataset and store it in a tape data set.

  • Using IEBGENER and the IBM Encryption Facility for z/OS Client - Java Client to decrypt the data and store it in an MVS dataset. A sample Unix System Services script used by this sample job is also provided. Both samples reflect the use of passwords.

Just read and accept the terms and conditions before you download the samples.


IBM Health Checker for z/OS and Sysplex V3.01 (October 2003)

This download is no longer available.


IBM Migration Checker for z/OS

This tool is still available but no updates are planned for z/OS V1.10. Beginning with z/OS V1.10, new migration checks use the IBM Health Checker for z/OS (which is an integral part of the z/OS product). More migration checks are planned over time.


The new migration checks can assist with planning before migrating to z/OS V1.10 or after migrating to z/OS V1.10, to verify that the migration actions were successfully performed. As with any IBM Health Checker for z/OS check, no updates are made to the system. For more information, see Using IBM Health Checker for z/OS for migration checking in the z/OS V1R10 Migration manual.


Though the IBM Migration Checker for z/OS tool is planned to be withdrawn at some point, you can still use this tool in addition to the new migration checks. If you use the tool, read the installation documentation for the tool and use it with the z/OS V1R10 Migration manual. You can run the tool as often as you like: on your current z/OS system, after installing z/OS V1.10, and after deploying each z/OS V1.10 image into your enterprise. The tool checks the level of the system on which it is running but does not make any changes to the system. The tool can:

  • Alert you to migration actions that you should plan for in the future
  • Detect some migration actions that you can do now to ease your migration to z/OS V1.10 (or to z/OS V1.8 or z/OS V1.9)
  • Verify that you've done some migration actions correctly when you're running z/OS V1.10 (or to z/OS V1.8 or z/OS V1.9)

IBMRRAP code, documentation, and utilities for WebSphere Application Server (WAS) 6.0 and WAS 6.1

IBMRRAP adds RACF authorization to the WebSphere container for J2EE applications. IBMRRAP is designed to enable non-z/OS Websphere servers to use RACF services on z/OS to provide authorization and audit capabilities, allowing for centralization of authorization and audit functions to z/OS.


ICTX Java API Javadoc

The ICTX Java API is the primary interface for working with the z/OS Identity Cache. The z/OS Identity Cache can be used by applications to communicate user authentication information across security domain boundaries. An application running on a z/OS or non-z/OS system can use the ICTX Java API to store identity context information in the Identity Cache on the local, or on a remote, z/OS system. The ICTX Java API provides two logical sets of services �- one for specifying and parsing authentication information, and one for storing that information in, and retrieving it from, the z/OS Identity Cache. These two logical sets of services are provided in three packages which are documented in the ICTX Java API Javadoc.

SMP/E installable z/OS Web deliverables

The following z/OS downloads are considered Web deliverables and are SMP/E-installable.

Why are there z/OS Web deliverables? Stated simply, because we want you to be able to select new non-priced functions for your z/OS or OS/390 releases (releases for which Web deliverables are offered may or may not be currently orderable). Since we can't offer new features to products that aren't currently marketed, we're using the Internet to provide you with these functions (More).
