Installation Instructions

Follow these steps to install the MP1B SupportPac:

  1. Download the MP1B compressed file to a temporary directory.
  2. Decompress the .zip file.
  3. Upload the files mp1b.load.xmit.bin and mp1b.jcl.xmit.bin to z/OS. The files must be uploaded to data sets that are allocated with the following attributes:
    • Record format: Fixed block (FB)
    • Logical record size: 80
    • Block size: 3200
    For example, follow these steps to upload the files by using FTP:
    a) Start an FTP session to the target z/OS system.
    b) Issue the following command to set the attributes of the data sets that are created: quote site cyl pri=1 sec=1 recfm=fb blksize=3200 lrecl=80
    c) Issue the following command to enter binary mode: bin
    d) Issue the following commands to upload the two files:
       put mp1b.load.xmit.bin 'userid.MP1B.LOAD.XMIT'
       put mp1b.jcl.xmit.bin 'userid.MP1B.JCL.XMIT'

    where userid is your z/OS user ID.
    e) End the FTP session by issuing the quit command.
  4. Issue the following commands on z/OS to receive the uploaded data sets:

    This creates data sets userid.MP1B.LOAD and userid.MP1B.JCL.
  5. Further instructions for how to use MP1B can be found inside PDFs in the installed package.
