Issue/Introduction

How to change a locally resident resource in ACF2/CICS to be a Globally resident resource.

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

Add the resource type codes to infodir as globally resident.
ACF
SET CONTROL(GSO)
CHANGE INFODIR TYPES(R-Rxxx R-Ryyy) ADD
F ACF2,REFRESH(INFODIR)
F ACF2,REBUILD(xxx)
F ACF2,REBUILD(yyy)
END

Then either restart the CICS regions (maybe at next IPL)
or rebuild the local directory in each region.
When the rebuld directory is issued via the ACFM transaction, it will
inform you that the directory is global and no rebuild is needed.

Obviously the changover to global at IPL or region restart is simplest.
