We are currently testing a new processor (z14 zr1) on a tech lpar. I will need to start up tlms to ensure there are no issues. I will not be doing any tape processing. I will only need to bring up CTS ensure that the STC runs and I may jump through a few panels etc. Besides a copy of the VMF and possibly the index, can I get by without a ctsdump, and alog, etc. In our environment tapes are shared across all lpars and thus to protect our production environements, CTS will not have access to the normal VMF, catalog, etc. Since we are only wanting to start CTS, I would like to make it as easy as possible (don't want to clone the vmf, inedex, etc if I don't have to). How can I configure CTS minimally to just see that stc runs on the new processor (I don't care if we use a dummy vmf, etc).
You can bring up CTS with a sample TLMS VMF on the new LPAR. You will need comment out the following DD's within CTS.
//*----------- TLMS (OPTIONAL)
//*CAIALOG DD DISP=SHR,DSN=&ALOG ALTERNATE TRAN LOG
//*CAIVMFXI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=&VMFIDX TAPEDB INDEX (INPUT)
//*CAIVMFXU DD DISP=SHR,DSN=&VMFIDX TAPEDB INDEX (UPDATE)
You will also need to update the TLMS clist.
ALLOC DD(CAIVMFXI) DA('CAI.TLMS.VMFINDEX') SHR * This should give you a base CTS system to work with.
