Installing IBM z/OS Connect
After you install z/OS Connect (OpenAPI 2) or z/OS Connect (OpenAPI 2) Unlimited, you perform the postinstallation tasks.
The SMP/E installation process puts the product code onto your system.
About this task
Follow the instructions in the Program Directory to install the product
using SMP/E. Note:
- By default, the product code is installed in /usr/lpp/IBM/zosconnect/v3r0/bin.
- You can set the WLP_USER_DIR environment variable to the location where you
want your server instances to be stored. If you do not set WLP_USER_DIR, the
default value /var/zosconnect is used.
If you change the WLP_USER_DIR environment variable to a different location, new servers are stored in the new location. The servers in the old location still exist, but can be used only when you change WLP_USER_DIR back to that location again.
- If you are planning to set up an HA environment, you need to customize WLP_USER_DIR, so consider this requirement when you plan your installation.
- Apply the latest maintenance to update the product.
IBM z/OS Connect is installed.
Perform the postinstallation steps in Creating the IBM z/OS Connect shared directory and Setting up the product extensions directory before you attempt to start a server.
What to do next
Consider preparing your new server to provide good diagnostic information if a problem occurs. For more information, see Prepare IBM z/OS Connect for FFDC.
