Time requirements

The amount of time that is required to install and configure the z/OS® Explorer 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
  • Whether OMVS segments are defined for z/OS Explorer users
  • 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 of the z/OS Explorer host system requires from one to four days to complete. 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.
