The file transfer process
HLASM Installation and Customization Guide
There are four files on the 3480 tape which should be uploaded to the host system. The four files are sequential data sets which can be copied to DASD using a utility such as IEBGENER (for z/OS), or equivalent utilities for z/VM or z/VSE. See Sample JCL for sample job control to copy the files to a z/OS system.
Once the files are on DASD, then normal ftp can be used to transfer them to the zLinux system. The type of transfer and resulting Linux file names are:
The RPM package ASMA90.RPM must be renamed during or after the file transfer so that RPM will correctly recognize the package.
The RPM package is the only file that is actually needed to be present on the zLinux system for the RPM installation to succeed. The other files can be transferred to any suitable computer platform which allows viewing of text and pdf files.
