Pinned topic Install RDz,TXSeries,DB2,etc

‏2013-05-22T01:22:55Z |

Hello,

I have a new Windows 7 laptop and can start a new 'clean' life. I will install:  RDz 8.5, TXSeries 7.1, DB2 (not sure of appropriate version at this moment), probably HATS, probably CTG (if its available).

Is there a recommended/necessary order of installation. I am tired of reading this and that article that never really give definitive answers.

Please, thanks,
Graham Hobbs

    Walexand,

    I read your refs in detail. Unless I missed something amongst the acronyms, I cannot determine what is meant by 'Host'.

    I operate standalone with RDz, DB2, TXSeries and SFS-Server on a W7 laptop, have developed and do run CICS transactions thereon. They need a GUI frontend.

    Need the 'host' to be my laptop. Can it?

     

    The 'host' is meant to be System z.

    Have you had a chance to review the RDz Installation Guide (GI11-8297-07) ?    You can find it at the RDz Library: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27038516#85x

     

    You should also note that HATS requires either RAD or RBD as a prerequisite.   Besides that, I think the order you list them in your original post should be fine.

    Hello walexand,

    Good pointers, cheers for confirming the order is fine. For HATS, one of:

    RDB = RDB Synchronization, Transcoding and LDAP Directory Services in IBM WebSphere Everyplace Access Version 4.1.1?

    RAD = Rapid Application Developer for Websphere?

    (if I have the acronyms right?) is vital for HATS .. absolutely can't be done without one thereof? As crude as it might sound, can one manually or automate create what HATS needs from a BMS macro? Depending on what you say I may/may not take the IBM Education Assistant tutorial on HATS.

    substantial thanks, Graham

    I am sorry, I should have spelled out the acronyms in my original post. 

    RBD = Rational Business Developer

    RAD = Rational Application Developer

    Here is a link to the HATS System requirements page where you should find the details you are looking for:

    http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/us/en/rhats#HATSToolkitrequirements

    Also here is an article that I think does a nice job explaining the capabilities of HATS:

    Gotcha, thanks,

    What could I use as a GUI frontend on a laptop?

    In RDz 8.5.1 client, do we still need to install TXSeries / DB2 Connect to allow RDz to do local syntax check for CICS / DB2 programs?
