Issue/Introduction

Description:

This document provides the jcl and control statement to download a PAX file, software installation package, from the CA FTP server (scftpd.ca.com) to your z/OS USS file system.

This JCL can be used when there is no direct connection between the z/OS USS partition and the CA FTP server, or when the package is not yet available to CSO (Beta packages and test solutions).

Solution:

The sample JCL to use for the file transfer is:

//   Insert valid jobcard
//*
//*   This job will FTP the pre-req pax file, the MSM Installer
//*   pax file, the current MSM PTFs and the Datacom fixes
//*   into the /u/users/msmserv/msminstall directory created
//*   for MSM installation.
//*
//*  Client may have to specify SYSTCPD DD depending on
//*   configuration
//*SYSTCPD  DD DSN=TCPIP.TCPIP.DATA,DISP=SHR
//*S010     EXEC PGM=FTP,PARM='(EXIT TIMEOUT 720',COND=(0,LT)
//STEP1   EXEC FTPBATCH,
//             PARM='(EXIT TIMEOUT 720',COND=(0,LT)
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//INPUT    DD *
