Pinned topic Install questions

‏2014-04-08T13:25:56Z |

I've got both the download and the DVD media for RD&T V9.  I can't find zPDT anywhere on them.  Where are the 1090 RPM's for zPDT?  Also, I opened an SR for RD&T and they directed me to this forum.  Is this where we come for support and not SR?

Regards,

Tom Conley

    Hello Tom,

    The installation has been changed for version 9 and is now driven by IBM Installation Manager. The installation steps are documented in the Installation and Sample Configuration
    Guide located on the installation disk in the documentation directory.

      John,

       

      Thank you so much!  This install doc is complete garbage.  GNOME would not run the shell script at all.  I had to type in the full pathname and it's finally running.  What a PITA.  Thanks for your help, I'm sure I'll be back later.

       

      Regards,

      Tom Conley

    As John S. indicated previously, RD&T V.9.0 uses Install Manager to install the RD&T executables from an encrypted location on disk to a customer location in your file system.  Once the executable is in place, IM will run the 1091 installer to install the emulator.  It will then delete the executables.  You can also run the IM installer in line mode.  If this applies to your situation, see the doc for details on how to do this.  Some other things to note.  With RD&T V9.0 we diverge from zPDT in several places.  The most obvious is that RD&T V9.0 will only run with an RD&T USB hardware key and license file.  The other is that the RD&T usb hardware key is called a 1091 key.  Corresponding commands and documentation are in the process of being switched over to reference 1091 vs. the zPDT equivalent, z1090.

    As for service, this forum is the place to go for support for RD&T.  Remember, we support the installer and the emulator only.  For z/OS and z/OS product support, you'll need to pursue support through an alternate mainframe supported channel.
