Preparing the environment for IMS nodes
Before you can use the IMS nodes, you must set up the integration node runtime environment so that you can access the IMS system.
Before you begin
Complete the following steps to ensure that IBM® Integration Bus can connect to the IMS system.
About this task
- Ensure that IMS Connect is installed and started on the IMS system.
- If you do not want to configure IMS connection properties directly on the IMSRequest node, define a configurable
service for each IMS system to
which you want to connect. For example, to create an IMSConnect configurable service for the IMS instance IMSA that is running on test.ims.ibm.com, port 9999, run the mqsicreateconfigurableservice command as shown:
For details about how to create, change, and report configurable services, see Changing connection information for the IMSRequest node.
mqsicreateconfigurableservice IBNODE -c IMSConnect -o myIMSConnectService -n Hostname,PortNumber,DataStoreName -v test.ims.ibm.com,9999,IMSAYou can use the IMSConnect configurable service to configure the IMSRequest node to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. For more information, see Securing the connection to IMS by using SSL.
- Use the mqsisetdbparms command
to set security details in the integration node store. For example, to associate a user ID and password pair with an IMS Connect connection, run the mqsisetdbparms command as shown:
mqsisetdbparms IBNODE -n ims::mySecurityIdentity -u myuserid -p mypassword
