This IBM® Redbooks® publication helps you install, customize, and configure an IBM z13® and build z/OS® environments.
This book is intended for those readers who are new to the platform and are faced with the task of installing a mainframe for the first time. By the term mainframe in this instance, we refer to the hardware and the system software. The intention is to show you how this installation can be done.
Volume 1 shows you how we set up a mainframe and installed z/OS V2R2 and IBM DB2® V11. The starting point is a basic hardware configuration of an IBM z13 and DS8000® as shipped from the factory. Volume 1 shows you how the following milestones were achieved:
Creating a configuration for the Customized Offering Driver
Stand-alone restoration of the COD
Expanding the configuration
Installing the z/OS V2R2 ServerPac
Loading and running IVPs for z/OS ServerPac
Installing DB2 ServerPac and IVPs
This publication includes figures that show you how the initial builds were achieved.
For this book, we designed a scenario and show you how to build that scenario step-by-step. Although your requirements likely differ from our scenario, we intend to provide you with an example to show you how it can be done and samples and downloadable materials that you can choose to modify to bring you closer to meeting your needs.
This book is divided into the following parts:
Part 1: Overview and Planning
In this part, we introduce you to how we approached the project.
Part 2: Configuration and builds
In this part, we describe the tasks that must be completed to create the initial build for the scenario that is described in Part 1.
