You need to define/adapt your I/O configuration with the Input/Output Configuration Program (IOCP).
Before you perform an initial installation the I/O configuration need to be defined in the IOCDS. If you want to run your z/VSE system together with z/OS or z/VM you may use the online version of IOCP on those systems to generate a new IOCDS, or use the stand-alone version. As input, you can also use an already customized IOCDS, that was generated on another server. During the initial installation of z/VSE the online version of IOCP is automatically installed.
You can use this online version of IOCP to:
For detailed information about IOCP, consult the IOCP publication of your server. More information is in the z/VSE Planning book too.
