Here are instructions for applying an EKG on MVS or VSE:
   
When running VSE
Catalog the new EKG key into the CALMPKEY.A member as the first uncommented line of the file. 
Run this batch job: 
// EXEC CAIRIM
/* 
~OR~ 
Release a pause into a partition.
Respond to the paused partition with this command:
pid EXEC CAIRIM,PARM='EKGP'
Respond to the next message with a command like this:
pid EKG(1FBE00CF)
   
When running MVS
THE EMERGENCY KEY GENERATOR (EKG) CAN BE ACTIVATED IN ONE OF TWO METHODS:

(1) INSERTION OF THE EKG CONTROL CARD AS THE *FIRST* CONTROL CARD IN THE KEYS MEMBER.  IF EKG IS USED AS A CONTROL CARD, THE FORMAT IS AS FOLLOWS:

EKG(1FBE00CF)

WHERE  (1FBE00CF) IS THE EIGHT BYTE CODE GENERATED FROM THE EKG DEVICE

*IMPORTANT* THE EKG CONTROL CARD *MUST* BE THE *FIRST* UNCOMMENTED
