Creating a new z/OS UNIX file

You can use z/OS® Explorer to create a new file in a directory in your z/OS UNIX file system.

Ensure that you are in the z/OS perspective.

Ensure that you are connected to an FTP server on your host system.

  1. In the z/OS UNIX Files view, navigate to the directory where you want to create the new file.
  2. Right-click the directory name and click New File.
    The New z/OS file window shows the contents of the selected directory.
  3. Optional: Either navigate to a different directory, or type the name of a different directory in the parent directory field. You must type the name of an existing directory.
  4. Type the new file name in New file name, then click Finish.

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