- 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.
