Is it possible to run 2 RCS's on same image?
Remote Console release 2.3
z/OS 2.2 and above
You can run multiple RCS tasks on the same system, but you have to change a few parms.
1) Each proc must be changed to have RCS=MULT similar to the following RCEXEC EXEC PGM=RCSDRBGN,TIME=1440,REGION=4096K,DPRTY=(15,15), PARM=('INITPARM=&INIT','MVSCMNDS=&MCMD','RCSCMNDS=&RCMD', 'REUSE=&RE','RCS=MULT')
2) The INITPARM member has a parm for SSNAME (subsystem). These must be different for each RCS task. 3) You have to add COLLECT statements to MIC for each RCS task (if the customer uses MIC). 4) You need separate ACB's in SYS1.VTAMLST for each RCS task.
If you should receive the following message you have done something wrong. Go back and review your changes.
*RCS0005 RCSF - ALREADY ACTIVE IN THIS SYSTEM
*0048 RCS0048 CA-REMOTE CONSOLE INITIALIZATION FAILURE, DO YOU WANT A DUMP (YES OR NO)
Recommend you reply NO.
