Configuring an interactive subsystem

The information in this section explains how to set up a new interactive subsystem.

These steps are described as if the commands are entered manually. However, you can easily re-create your configurations for recovery purposes by using a CL program to create your subsystems.

When you set up a new interactive subsystem you should consider how many devices will be allocated to that subsystem. Since the subsystem performs device management functions, such as presenting the sign-on display and handling device error recovery, you might want to limit the number of devices allocated to a single subsystem. See the Communications limits topic for more information.

Note: This topic provides a synopsis of what is involved in configuring interactive subsystems. The experience reports about subsystems contain detailed explanations of each step and additional options available for each step.
