Installation verification

The detailed description of the various installation verification programs (IVPs) is located in Installation verification because some of the IVPs are for the optional components.

You can test the basic functions with the following scenario:
  1. Start the JMON started task or user job. The startup information in DD STDOUT should end with the following message:
    FEJ211I Server ready to accept connections.

    If the job ends with return code 66, FEK.SFEKAUTH is not APF-authorized.

  2. Start the RSED started task or user job with the IVP=IVP parameter. With this parameter, the server will end after doing some installation verification tests. Check DD STDOUT for messages indicating that the following IVPs were successful:
    • Java™ startup
    • JES Job Monitor connection
    • TCP/IP setup
  3. Start the RSED started task or user job without the IVP parameter. RSE daemon issues the following console message upon successful startup:
    FEK002I RseDaemon started. (port=4035)
  4. Issue the following operator commands and verify in the resulting console messages that the tests ran successfully:

    Replace userid with a valid TSO user ID that has a unique z/OS® UNIX UID. If this UID is not unique, all users sharing it must be valid TSO users.

Note: These IVPs do not prompt for a password, and the RSE daemon will generate a PassTicket that will be used as a password. Therefore, do not use a user ID that requires you to present a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) token before PassTickets are allowed.
