You have downloaded the MICS pax.Z file from the Support site to your desktop using the HTTP link. You now need to upload the pax file to a USS directory on the mainframe.


When you FTP from a DOS shell to the mainframe and logon, the default directory/HLQ is your userid.

At this point you can issue a cd command to change the directory to a valid target directory that you will use for the install. For example:

  • cd /esd/mics

Now you are ready to issue the binary and put command.
