Question:

Where the IBM Hardware Console Management API DLL HWMCAAPI file should be deployed for both CA OPS/MVS product install and execution?

Answer:

CA OPS/MVS supported releases requires that the IBM Hardware Console Management API DLL HWMCAAPI file is deployed in the /user/dll/ path specified in the DDDEF HWMCADLL for installation purposes. Also that path and file must be made available for execution when the feature provided for it is required.

For installation purposes just make sure the IBM Hardware Console Management API DLL HWMCAAPI file is copied, via a FTP session in binary transfer mode, to the USS path that has been defined in your DDDEF HWMCADLL on your CA OPS/MVS CSI. The location of the DLL can be any USS path that conforms your site standards.

This DLL is used to communicate with the IBM Hardware Console Management workstation through the SNMP protocol that runs over TCP/IP.  So it will be needed in the future so make sure it is then placed on a location that is a standard for both install/maintenance and execution.
