I'm very new to IBM Z/os and mainframes but I have a lot of unix experience, not that it is relevant.
This is my first post here.. I'm creating this under the emulator forum because this is an emulated setup, so please forgive me if this is the wrong location for this topic.
My scenario: I want to run a java7 app on Z/os 1.10 under hercules
What works: Z/os works, connectivity is fine over the tun interface.
The problem: The volumes I have don't have enough space for me to download and install the java7 pax.z
My approach so far :
I've used dasdinit to create a large volume set outside hercules...
$ dasdinit JAVA17.CCKD 3390-9 JAVA17
HHCDU044I Creating 3390 volume JAVA17: 10017 cyls, 15 trks/cyl, 56832 bytes/track
HHCDU041I 2519 cylinders successfully written to file JAVA17_1.CCKD
HHCDU041I 2519 cylinders successfully written to file JAVA17_2.CCKD
HHCDU041I 2519 cylinders successfully written to file JAVA17_3.CCKD
HHCDU041I 2460 cylinders successfully written to file JAVA17_4.CCKD
HHCDI001I DASD initialization successfully completed.
I've configured hercules to allocates them to OAB5 3390 device..
# special java7 vol
0AB5 3390 $(DASD)/SYS/JAVA17_1.CCKD
in ISPF / ICKDSF I see the volume, but I can't seem to issue an INSTALL against it
VOLUME LIST VOLUME IN ERROR STATUS

---(1)---- -(2)-- ---(3)--- (4)- ---(5)--- -(6)- ---(7)--- --(8)--
?INSTALL JAVA17 ????????? ??? ????????? 0 ????????? ???????
---------- ------ ----------- BOTTOM OF DATA ----------- ------ ----
So, this isn't working.. The obvious question is what else should I try ?
Other approaches that also failed.. :
I've also tried copying an existing CCKD but it conflicted on volser and I can't work out how to change a volser from outside hercules.
I'd be grateful for any help or guidance here.
