Z Common Components server configuration

The default name of the ZCC server is HFISRV. You can change this name to suit your site's requirements.

You must provide and configure the server options in a data set specified on the CONFIG DD statement in the server procedure (HFISRV). The data set defined, or concatenated, to this DD statement must be sequential, or a member from a PDS or PDSE.

Sample configuration data is provided in the HFM.SHFMSAM1 member HFMSAMCS. The sample configuration data needs customizing to your environment.

The Z Data Tools sample HFI configuration member HFMSAMCS specifies SPAWN_PROGRAM=HFMCSEP. This program allows Z Data Tools to run authorized and ensures that ZDT/CICS can:
  • Perform auditing
  • Access tapes
  • Use remote services

High level qualifiers for both Z Data Tools and the ZCC server should be adjusted according to your site installation details. To simplify the creation of this configuration data, a sample REXX exec is supplied in the HFM.SHFMEXEC library, called HFMCSTCS. Running this exec from TSO prompts for the various data set names required, and produces a usable configuration for the ZCC server.

Refer to the Z Common Components Customization Guide and User Guide for any additional customization which may be required.
