Description:

What does the Librarian Access Method do and how can I determine if it is active?

Solution:

CA-Librarian Access Method (LIB/AM) is an option providing a direct read-only interface between IBM language translators and CA-Librarian master files. LIB/AM allows members stored on a master file to be read as if they were members stored on a partitioned data set. LIB/AM is installed as a Z/OS subsystem.

To determine if the subsystem has been successfully initialized after a IPL or after running CAS9 proc the messages from CAIRIMnn will be displayed:

 CAS9115I - INPUT: PRODUCT(CA-LIBRARIAN-PRD) VERSION(LJ43) INIT(LJ43INIT)
 LAMDT001I - Installation successful
 ===>> LAM002O LAM SUBSYSTEM SUCCESSFULLY INITIALIZED.
 LAM004O LAM RELEASE 4.3
 CA-LIBRARIAN SUBSYSTEM INITIALIZED
 CAS9130I - MODULE LJ43INIT COMPLETE, RC=00

To check which Subsystems are currently active, LAM, LAMx, and which initialization routine was run.

Use /D SSI from the master console or job CAIRIMU for list of SUBSYSTEMS.
