Is it possible to run 2 RCS's on same image?

Environment

Remote Console release 2.3

z/OS 2.2 and above

Resolution

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.
