By performing the enablement of the above products, it allows you to exploit z/OS as a server, thus supporting you in your e-business endeavours.
SystemPac with e-business enabled using IBM default mode provides a base for you to further tailor your system. Detailed instructions are provided in the SystemPac installation guide to inform you what has been done and what configuration was setup. With minimal effort, you should be able to tailor your environment such that selected workstations connected to the z/OS host will be able to access the internet using a browser.
If NFS is in the order, a default configuration is also supplied with the component. You can use this as a base for your further tailoring to match that of your environment so that you can access host data from your workstation or access remote data on other NFS servers.
Similarly for InfoPrint Server, selected function of the product is configured if ordered. You can use this as a base for your further tailoring to match that of your environment so that you can exploit the product to transmit output from z/OS system to printers or servers in a TCP/IP network.
SystemPac comes with e-business enabled in IBM default mode. This means that the following activities are performed on your behalf:
If the InfoPrint Server is included in your SystemPac order, the following are configured and customized:
If NFS is included in your SystemPac order, a default configuration is supplied including:
This allows you to access host data from your workstation or access remote data on other NFS servers
If CICS Transaction Server for z/OS is included in your SystemPac order, common data sets that are required for CICS initialization and CICS logstreams to MVS LOGR are defined:

When you decide to install/upgrade your z/OS, there may be other systems software that may require associated toleration maintenance, e.g. the driving system, accompanying systems, etc. IBM can offload the task of performing the research for this toleration service by providing you with the necessary toleration maintenance PLUS all the necessary pre-req. and co-req. PTF(s) which you need to install the service on your other systems. All you need to do is tell us which z/OS or subsystems (DB2, CICS,IMS) version/release you are installing and provide us with cop(ies) of your SMP/E configurations for the other system(s). We will send you the toleration maintenance as well as all related service applicable to your CSIs. This will save you the time it currently takes for you to perform all the toleration research.
CSIs can be sent to manufacturing centers via internet or physical tape media.
Depending on the geography, the toleration maintenance management is usually offered as an added value to the SystemPac offering or bundled into larger contracts. For details, contact your geography for information.
Note: Toleration maintenance management is only available in selected geographies in Europe, e.g. Germany, UK, France. In the US,toleration maintenance is available through ServiceLink if you have a SoftwareXcel contract with IBM.
