Setting the Time-Of-Day Clock
The TOD (time-of-day) clock must be set to start up your system. If z/VSE is running as a VM guest, the VM date is retrieved and used by the system. In case the TOD clock is not set, the system displays the following message during IPL:
0I18D ENTER SET CMD THE DATE VALUE FORMAT IS MM/DD/YYYY
Enter the SET DATE command:
For DATE=mm is month, dd is day, yyyy is year.
For CLOCK= hh is hour, mm is minutes, ss is seconds.
For ZONE=hh is hours, mm is minutes in multiples of 30.
Please enter the date and time and time zone of your geographical location. For more information, please refer to Using Commands.
After you have entered the required information, the following message appears:
0I19A ENABLE SETTING OF TOD CLOCK
Enable the setting of the TOD clock via the enable TOD switch, the hardware selection menu, or mode select option. For detailed information, refer to the operating procedures manual for your processor.
z/VSE now starts ASI processing.
