Creating a new z/OS UNIX directory

You can use z/OS® Explorer to create a new directory in your z/OS UNIX file system. You can then edit the member and copy and paste content from other members.

Ensure that you are in the z/OS perspective.

Ensure that you are connected to an FTP server on your host system. For more information, see the related links later in this topic.

  1. Right-click anywhere in the z/OS UNIX Files view and click New z/OS directory.
    The New z/OS directory window shows the contents of the home directory.
  2. Either navigate to and select the parent directory in the list, or type the name of the parent directory in the parent directory field. You must type the name of an existing directory.
  3. Type the new directory name in New directory name, then click Finish.

The new directory is created and displayed in the z/OS UNIX files view.
