Installing WASOEM.

Postby MeSh » Sun Dec 22, 2013 6:23 pm

Dear friends:
I was downloaded the "IBM WebSphere Application Server OEM" pack from the JAZZ website. Then I FTP'ed these dataset to Mainframe. Now I have following datasets in mainframe:
                                Tracks %Used   XT
 ------------------------------------------------
  BBN.SBBN7HFS                  36000    1     1
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F1             8903  100     1
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F2            15597  100     2
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F3            15395  100     1
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F4                5  100     1
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F5                4  100     1
  HBBN700.HBBN700.JCL              14   92     5
  HBBN700.HBBN700.SMPMCS            5   20     1
  HBBN700.MEFP5.JCL                 3   33     1
                                                       
                             Dsorg  Recfm  Lrecl  Blksz
 ------------------------------------------------------
  BBN.SBBN7HFS                HFS   U          0      0
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F1          PS    VS     32650  32654
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F2          PS    VS     32650  32654
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F3          PS    VS     32650  32654
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F4          PS    VS     12976  12980
  HBBN700.HBBN700.F5          PS    VS      8816   8820
  HBBN700.HBBN700.JCL         PO    FB        80   8800
  HBBN700.HBBN700.SMPMCS      PS    FB        80  27920
  HBBN700.MEFP5.JCL           PO    FB        80  27920

Now might be a JCL taht OMVS can be able to identify or see the content of the HFS. (Any JCL that can introduce the "HBBN700.HBBN700.Fx" date set series to OMVS) and therefor I'll be able to see the WASOEM.sh script from the appropriate path in OMVS and run it for installing compeletion.
(I can't see the WASOEM.sh script in path: /usr/lpp/zWebsphereOEM/V7R0)
Can any body help me?

Those data sets look like an SMP/E installation needs to be done. I suspect the JCL is a PDS that includes jobs to execute SMP/E to RECEIVE, then APPLY the software. If you do not know how to use SMP/E, you need to contact your site support group and get their help to install the software. Assuming SMP/E is used, you will not see an installation script until after the SMP/E APPLY has been executed.

Dear. Robert Sample
Yeah. You are right. But our site doesn't use SMP/E. And we must install WASOEM(and any other subsystems) whithout this facility. Where we can get more information about how to install it manually.

well... You are out of luck
how in heaven does Your support manage the system ???
SMPE is mandatory to apply maintenance, implement user mods, install IBM and other vendor program.

nobody will ever waste time giving suggestion on how to implement on such idiotic requirement...
when the standard approach is so much simpler
time to lock the topic :evil:
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

As enrico stated, basically without SMP/E you will NOT be installing that software -- period. SMP/E does many, many, many things during the installation process, and it would take thousands of hours to develop a replacement for SMP/E.

And, by the way, it is not possible to install z/OS without using SMP/E at some point. IBM tells us at http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/ ... index.html
Overview of SMP/E
SMP/E is the basic tool for installing and maintaining software in z/OS systems and subsystems. It controls these changes at the element level by:

Selecting the proper levels of elements to be installed from a large number of potential changes
Calling system utility programs to install the changes
Keeping records of the installed changes
SMP/E is an integral part of the installation, service, and maintenance processes for z/OS software products and product packages, such as CBPDO, ProductPac, RefreshPac, and selective follow-on service for CustomPac. In addition, SMP/E can be used to install and service any software that is packaged in SMP/E system modification (SYSMOD) format.

SMP/E can be run either using batch jobs or using dialogs under Interactive System Productivity Facility/Program Development Facility (ISPF/PDF). SMP/E dialogs help you interactively query the SMP/E database, as well as create and submit jobs to process SMP/E commands.
