Print support statement


With ERi/CICS release 3.1.1 maintenance has been applied
as required to keep ERI/CICS
compatible with the latest
releases of CICS.

In addition, several ERI fixes
have been applied.

Step 1
 

Download the Distribution Libraries

The ERI web site contains a directory with four libraries:

INSTILB.BIN Sample JCL for installation jobs
COPYLIB.BIN CICS table definition copybooks, sample code for ERI/CICS exits
LOAD.BIN ERI/CICS object modules for CICS
ERIINIT.BIN Initialization data for ERICNTL

Download the distribution libraries by going to the ERI/CICS download directory.

Your web browser will prompt you for an authorized userid and password,
please contact ERI for this information, 919/406-0067.


Step 2
 

Catalog the following installation datasets used to receive the uploaded libraries.

your.UPLOAD.INSTLIB target for uploaded INSTLIB.BIN (PS, FB, 80x3120, 1Trk)
your.UPLOAD.COPYLIB target for uploaded COPYLIB.BIN (PS, FB, 80x3120, 3Trk)
your.UPLOAD.LOAD target for uploaded LOAD.BIN (PS, FB, 80x3120, 2Cyl)
your.UPLOAD.ERIINIT target for uploaded ERIINIT.BIN (PS, VB, 1000x6160, 1Trk)

Step 3
 

Upload the following distribution libraries. Transfer as binary files; do not specify EBCDIC conversion or CRLF.

INSTLIB.BIN your.UPLOAD.INSTLIB
COPYLIB.BIN your.UPLOAD.COPYLIB
LOAD.BIN your.UPLOAD.LOAD


Step 4
 

Upload the following distribution library. Transfer as a binary file; do not specify EBCDIC conversion; specify CRLF, Blocksize=6160, and Variable Blocked.

ERIINIT.BIN your.UPLOAD.ERIINIT


Step 5
 

Use the TSO RECEIVE command to build distribution libraries.

At a TSO READY prompt, enter:

RECEIVE INDSN('your.UPLOAD.INSTLIB')

When prompted for restore parameters, enter:

DSN('your.ERI.INSTLIB')

Your.ERI.INSTLIB now contains the sample installation jobs. Repeat these commands for each of the uploaded binary files.

Note: this step assumes you have pre-allocated your.ERI.datasets using your installation standards.


Step 6
 

Delete the following datasets:

your.UPLOAD.INSTLIB
your.UPLOAD.COPYLIB
your.UPLOAD.LOAD
your.UPLOAD.ERIINIT

Please continue the installation process art Step 2, Installing the ERI/CICS Software, in your User Manual.
