Last week I posted a blog entry that provided some information about the TCP/IP stacks on z/VSE Version 6.
Today I have a bit more information for IBM TCP/IP for z/VSE Version 2 users.
As mentioned last week, the CUSTDEF.PHASE and PRODKEYS.PHASE need to be in the LIBDEF search chain of the TCP/IP startup job.
The CUSTDEF.PHASE holds the customer name and customer number, the PRODKEYS.PHASE the license key you got from the IBM key center.
The customer number of the CUSTDEF.PHASE has to match with the customer number you ordered the product and requested the license key.
Otherwise you will get message IPN110E Product key validation failed for Stack reason=GETKNFNB and the job terminates.
More details are in the z/VSE TCP/IP Support book, Chapter 1. The book is here.
