Operating system requirements for the Content Manager OnDemand server


Supported operating system version
z/OS
Additional requirements
z/OS Version 1.9
Content Manager OnDemand uses approximately 2100 pages of the limit set by the MAXMMAPAREA parameter of the BPXPRMxx parmlib member. Review the MAXMMAPAREA limit to ensure that additional use by Content Manager OnDemand does not cause that limit to be exceeded.

Additionally, each Content Manager OnDemand process uses approximately 2100 pages of the limit imposed by the MAXSHAREPAGES parameter of the BPXPRMxx parmlib member. Review the MAXSHAREPAGES limit to ensure that the additional use by Content Manager OnDemand does not cause that limit to be exceeded. This calculation should be based on the maximum number of simultaneous Content Manager OnDemand processes that are running at any one time.
