Pinned topic Can we install zOS connect open Beta and GA versions on the same LPAR

‏2019-04-09T03:50:55Z |

Hi Team,

I have a requirement to install the zOS connect open Beta and zOS connect GA version on the same LPAR.

I see zconsetup uses /var/zosconnect for both open Beta and GA version.

 is it possible to install beta and GA on the same LPAR? can you please give the information.

 

Thanks,

Bujji

    Hello Bujji @FJN7_bujjireddy_regalla

    Yes, you can install the z/OS Connect EE open beta and the z/OS Connect GA version on the same LPAR.

    Your SMP/E installs should be separate, that is, use different SMP CSI, global, target, distribution zones, etc, however both installs can use the same /var/zosconnect/ location for storing your server configuration and SARs and AARs. If you want to keep these separate too, you can use the WLP_USER_DIR parameter (see https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS4SVW_3.0.0/configuring/creating_zC_server.html)
