Transfer dump.

Good day. Please, tell me links to guidance on the transfer of dumps from z/OS to an external source, based on iscsi or samba.

frankly, unless the setup is in place for different business reasons
a plain FTP transfer would be much more cost effective

Are you trying to tell us this is a true standalone dump taken to 9 tape volumes? Is it your intent to load this data to DASD for local processing? Or are you ultimately transferring this data to a vendor for analysis? If the latter, you should discuss the matter with the vendor. I used to work for a vendor. We got quite a few dumps through FTP, but I was never involved with something that large. The dumps we got were in the hundreds of megabytes, but they were all SYS1.DUMPxx type dumps.

It drives backups. In addition to tape.

Ooups, "As of z/OS Version 1 Release 13, IBM has withdrawn support for the z/OS Distributed File Service support that utilizes the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) architecture." - Samba will not work. Can anyone help with ISCSI? Or possibly offer other options?

When you say "dump", you mean a backup, not a core dump? And you want to transfer it electronically using iSCSI, effectively accessing a remote SCSI (or SCSI-pretending) device?

yes, i mean a backup. yes, i want to transfer it electronically using iSCSI protocol from the mainframe to the remote SCSI device(or the server? I only heard about the Protocol - I don't know anything else about him, which is right?)

Fit for these purposes NetworkFileSystem? This product is free?

Now there's an idea - can the mainframe to transfer in multi-threaded mode ftp?
Are you searching for information on this. Please, if someone knows the answer, just a hint.
