Chapter 16. Using the Job Scheduling Console with Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS 491
environments that do not already have a TMR server, or one in which a separate
TMR server will be installed for IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler.
In 16.3.1, “Creating connector instances” on page 492 and 16.3.2, “Creating
TMF administrators for Tivoli Workload Scheduler” on page 495, we discuss in
more detail the steps specific to end-to-end scheduling: creating connector
instances and TMF administrators.
The Tivoli Management Framework is easy to install. If you already have the
Framework installed in your organization, it is not necessary to install the
components specific to Tivoli Workload Scheduler (the JSS and connectors) on a
node in your existing Tivoli Managed Region. You may prefer to install a
stand-alone TMR server solely for the purpose of providing the connection
between the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler suite and its interface, the JSC. If
your existing TMR is busy with other operations, such as monitoring or software
distribution, you might want to consider installing a separate stand-alone TMR
server for Tivoli Workload Scheduler.
16.2.3 Install Job Scheduling Services
Follow the instructions in 16.4, “Installing the Job Scheduling Console step by
step” on page 499 to install JSS. JSS is simply a library used by the Framework,
and it is a prerequisite of the connectors.
The hardware and software prerequisites for the Job Scheduling Services are:
IBM Tivoli Management Framework: Version 3.7.1 or later for Microsoft
Windows, AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris, and Red Hat and SUSE Linux.
– CD-ROM drive for installation
– Approximately 4 MB of free disk space
For the latest information about the supported versions of these platforms, refer
to IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console Release Notes,
Feature level 1.4, SC32-1258.
16.3 Installing the connectors
We recommend that when installing the Tivoli Workload Scheduler connector,
you do not select the Create Instance check box. Create the instances after the
connector has been installed.
