Time requirements

The amount of time that is required to install and configure the Developer for z/OS® host system components depends on various factors such as these:
  • The current z/OS UNIX and TCP/IP configuration
  • The availability of prerequisite software and maintenance
  • The availability of a user, who has successfully installed the client, to test the installation and report any problems that might occur

Experience has shown that the installation and configuration process for the Developer for z/OS host system requires from one to two days to complete. This time requirement does not include the installation and configuration of IBM® Explorer for z/OS, which is a required product, nor does it include the installation and configuration of other FMIDs provided together with Developer for z/OS. This time requirement is for a clean installation performed by an experienced system programmer. If problems are encountered, or if the required skills are not available, the setup will take longer.
