Configuring Cross-System Coupling Facility (XCF) component of z/os to provide service to the entire SYSPLEX.

 

 

 

Environment

Component: ESP Workload Automaion
Release: All Releases 

Resolution

ESP Workload Automation uses XCF for communication between ESP and PROXY subsystems. 

To enable the use of XCF in ESP Workload Automation, add the following statements in the ESP initialization parmlib data set for both the Master and its Proxy subsystems: 

  1. SYSPLEX GROUP(name) MEMBER(name). The GROUP name must be the same for this family of ESP Master and its Proxy subsystems. The MEMBER name must be unique for each ESP subsystem. 
  2. XCF START SERVICE TRACKING: to enable job-tracking records to be transmitted from the ESP Proxy to the Master via XCF 
  3. XCF START SERVICE DSTRIG: to enable data set triggering records to be transmitted from the ESP Proxy to the Master via XCF. 
  4. XCF START SERVICE ROUTING: to enable the users to connect to an ESP proxy on any system in the sysplex, and route the commands to the ESP Master. This service requires add-on product ESP Workload Automation High Availability or Workload Automation Service Governor. 
  5. XCF START SERVICE SCOREBD: to enable the users to view the ESP scoreboard (application and job status) on an ESP Proxy subsystem. This service requires add-on product ESP Workload Automation High Availability or ESP Workload Automation Service Governor.
