Answer:

The CMS Option makes communication possible from one virtual machine to another in a z/VM environment by taking advantage of the VMCF communication facility.

The CMS Option is needed to be able to run CA IDMS. under CMS with or without batch or online communication to other CMS machines. It is also required to run batch or online tasks submitted from a CMS machine to communicate with CA IDMS. running on a guest machine.

The CMS Option must be installed for the following scenarios to be possible under z/VM.

Batch External Communication
