Installing Java

2020-06-30 Thread Gadi Ben-Avi
Hi,
When I ordered z/OS v2.4, I only ordered the 64 bit version of Java.
When we tried to start PFA, it failed. A quick search showed that PFA requires 
the 31 bit version of java.
I ordered it using shopzseries.
The resulting package was over 13GB.
It looks like I have the base version and over 50 PTF's that upgrade it to the 
current version.

Can I prevent SMP/E from installing all of those versions, and just install the 
final fix?

hi Gadi,


Perhaps the hold data will allow the APPLY job to figure out that only the 
latest ones in the chain actually need to be applied.
Ones in the chain may be superseded, so it's always worth an APPLY CHECK to see 
what's going on.

When downloading, the packaging system may be blindly pulling together related 
fixes, but I'm hoping the SMPHOLD will make the actual apply make sense.

Subject: USS "pwd" returns nothing? Maybe file system created wrong?

All,

have you ever came accross something like that?

I can change into an directory, „ls“ works but „pwd“ returns…. Nothing?!?   
When I’m in this particular directory a „cd ..“ returns „EDC5122I Input/output 
error.“


I’m pretty new to this „USS administration“ (I’m administering a z/OS running 
with an z/PDT)… So let me tell what I’ve done – I might have done something 
really wrong….


I need some space in USS so I’ve created some new fresh volumes (3390-9) for my 
zPDT and formatted them.

INIT UNITADDRESS(0AE0) NOVERIFY VOLID(USS010) -
   STORAGEGROUP -
   VTOC(3,0,50) -
   INDEX(1,0,30)

Now I have some volumes each with 10010 free CYLs.

Then I’ve created a Data Set for the ZFS file system:

DEFINE CLUSTER -
   (NAME (USSSET.DAT.ZFS) -
   VOLUMES (USS002 USS003 USS004 USS005  -
USS006 USS007 USS008 USS009) -
   LINEAR CYL(1 1) SHAREOPTIONS(3))

The idea was that when the file system needs to be enlarged this is done 
automatically (let z/OS allocate an additional extend of 1 CYLs from one of 
the dedicated volumes). I know that every extend neary uses the full volume – 
this is okay for me in this case…

Okay, then I’ve created the file system:

FORMAT EXEC PGM=IOEAGFMT,REGION=0M,
 PARM=(' -aggregate USSSET.DAT.ZFS -compat -perms 775 ')


Mounted… everything all right…. I saw that just one of the volumes was „used“. 
So I filled the mounted file system and saw that after some time the log 
messages

IOEZ00312I Dynamic growth of aggregate USSSET.DAT.ZFS in progress, (by user 
ADCDZ).
IOEZ00309I Aggregate USSSET.DAT.ZFS successfully dynamically grown (by user 
ADCDZ).


So for me I guess everything worked as expected… But now…. This „pwd anomaly“ 
….. Did I something wrong? Any idea how to get thigs working as expected?


Thank you,
Michael

If the Java service is packaged correctly then SMP will only install the most

Hi Gadi AMV"SH,
If later PTFs are truly replacements, the hierarchy of PTFs should be 
that every new PTF should SUPersede any old one.

This means that only the last one actually gets installed.

Re: Virtual SHARE Ageenda

2020-06-30 Thread Seymour J Metz
In TSS/360, VPAM datasets can have both sequential and index sequential 
members; you can read and write withing a member either sequentially or by key, 
including inserting a new record between existing members. VIPAM is a 
colloquial term for a VPAM dataset containing VIS members. From the 
documentation:

 Three special Data Management Access methods -- the virtual Access
 Methods (VAM)-- have been provided with TSS. They are specifically
 designed for a time-sharing environment and are used to read and write
 data to and from direct access storage devices. For all three of the
 VAM access methods, the data set management (for example, formatting)
 is performed in virtual storage -- using virtual addresses that are
 part of the user's virtual storage address space -- although physical
 device management (e.g., I/O) is performed by system programs in
 resident storage.  Each access method provides access and processing
 capabilities for data sets organized in a specific manner.

  * sequentially (Virtual Sequential Access Method -- VSAM)

  * indexed sequential (Virtual Indexed Sequential Access Method --
VISAM)

  * partitioned (Virtual Partitioned Access Method -- VPAM)

 In TSS, data sets organized for processing by one of the virtual
 access Methods are generally referred to as VAM data sets.

and

 Partitioned Organization
  A data set with partitioned organization has elements, or
  members, that are other data sets; these elements are in either
  sequential or indexed organization.

What is the logical difference between VPAM (found it in a TSS360

Re: Migrate z/OS DASD volumes from Mainframe to Hercules Environment

2020-06-30 Thread Mike Schwab
If you are only testing on Hercules and will continue to run
production on IBM z series hardware, I believe IBM doesn't care.  But
the SOFTWARE does check the hardware levels and you have to include a
particular configuration statement for a recent Z operating system to
run on Hercules.  But if you post the exact message we can help you
figure out the problem you are actually experiencing.

Hi,

When we tried to start PFA, it failed. A quick search showed that PFA requires

I ordered it using shopzseries.
The resulting package was over 13GB.
It looks like I have the base version and over 50 PTF's that upgrade it to the

Can I prevent SMP/E from installing all of those versions, and just install the 
final fix?
From past experience I know that each PTF is a full replacement of the who java

Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

2020-06-30 Thread Marshall Stone
There are 2 types of FTP in use today on most mainframes.

SFTP  - which uses Open/SSH (SSHAGNT as client and SSHD as a server) and the 
encryption/authentication is generally provided by the use of RSA/DSA 
public/private key pairs. The public keys are exchanged and stored in 
known_hosts files (if acting as client) or authorized_keys file (if acting as 
server) - Uses Server PORT 22 and ephemeral ports

FTPS - completely different mechanism the AT/TLS functions are provided by ICSF 
and policy agent (PAGENT) - You must configure an FTPS TLS rule to allow the 
connection and the partner side also will require a similar rule. The 
encryption/authentication come from the PAGENT rule and the use of x.509 
certificates.  These are exchanged between partners and loaded onto the RACF 
keyring. The PAGNET rule points back to the keyring. - Uses Server PORT 990 by 
an old implicit default most sites use a different port and connect clients 
with ephemeral port ranges. FTPS handles MVS datasets better if possible use 
FTPS for MF to MF and use SFTP for MF to Other platforms(MS,UNIX,etc)

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

I've tried to skim some of the AT-TLS doc, and even attended an IBM webinar 
last week, but I'm still missing what I imagine are important background 
points.  Maybe someone here can explain things, but don't worry too much about 
it.

Client and server programs like SSH/SSHD call programs such as OpenSSL to 
handle the encryption handshake and processing.  So when you set those up, 
there is no AT-TLS needed for encryption.  Same with the
TN3270 server and client, as long as you set that up with keys and parameters 
on the host side, and settings on the client side.

I'm thinking because of the name "Application Transparent" that AT-TLS was made 
for programs that DON'T have their own logic to call OpenSSL (or whatever) to 
do their own encryption.  Let's use clear-text FTP as an example.  So somehow, 
AT-TLS hooks into the processing and provides an encrypted "tunnel", kind of 
like VPN does, but only for that one application.  Does that sound correct?

If so, then the encryption is "transparent" to the FTP server code and FTP does 
not need to be changed, which I think is the whole idea here.
Yet we now have an encrypted session.  Does that sound correct?

Then if so, what happens on the FTP client side?  I certainly can't use the 
Windows FTP command, for example, because it's not setup for any kind of 
encryption.  That's kind of my big question here.

and policy agent (PAGENT) - You must configure an FTPS TLS rule to allow the 
connection and the partner side also will require a similar rule. The 
encryption/authentication come from the PAGENT rule and the use of x.509 
certificates.  These are exchanged between partners and loaded onto the RACF 
keyring. The PAGNET rule points back to the keyring. - Uses Server PORT 990 by 
an old implicit default most sites use a different port and connect clients 
with ephemeral port ranges. FTPS handles MVS datasets better if possible use 
FTPS for MF to MF and use SFTP for MF to Other platforms(MS,UNIX,etc)

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

I've tried to skim some of the AT-TLS doc, and even attended an IBM webinar 
last week, but I'm still missing what I imagine are important background 
points.  Maybe someone here can explain things, but don't worry too much about 
it.

Client and server programs like SSH/SSHD call programs such as OpenSSL to 
handle the encryption handshake and processing.  So when you set those up, 
there is no AT-TLS needed for encryption.  Same with the
TN3270 server and client, as long as you set that up with keys and parameters 
on the host side, and settings on the client side.

I'm thinking because of the name "Application Transparent" that AT-TLS was made for 
programs that DON'T have their own logic to call OpenSSL (or whatever) to do their own encryption.  
Let's use clear-text FTP as an example.  So somehow, AT-TLS hooks into the processing and provides 
an encrypted "tunnel", kind of like VPN does, but only for that one application.  Does 
that sound correct?

If so, then the encryption is "transparent" to the FTP server code and FTP does 
not need to be changed, which I think is the whole idea here.
Yet we now have an encrypted session.  Does that sound correct?

Then if so, what happens on the FTP client side?  I certainly can't use the 
Windows FTP command, for example, because it's not setup for any kind of 
encryption.  That's kind of my big question here.

I can't see that anyone answered your last question. Yes, the default Windows
FTP doesn't support encryption. There are third-party FTPS client programs you 
can purchase that do so. Or your could run lftp on the Windows Ubuntu shell.

A note, without addressing your entire post (certainly not my area of 
expertise):  AT-TLS is required for TN3270 (and others) if you want to use TLS 
1.2 and higher.  In your TELNETPARMS for the port, instead of using SECUREPORT, 
you use TTLSPORT, referencing a port specified in a TTLSRule in AT-TLS.

A note, without addressing your entire post (certainly not my area of 
expertise):  AT-TLS is required for TN3270 (and others) if you want to use TLS 
1.2 and higher.  In your TELNETPARMS for the port, instead of using SECUREPORT, 
you use TTLSPORT, referencing a port specified in a TTLSRule in AT-TLS.

I've tried to skim some of the AT-TLS doc, and even attended an IBM webinar 
last week, but I'm still missing what I imagine are important background 
points.  Maybe someone here can explain things, but don't worry too much about 
it.

Client and server programs like SSH/SSHD call programs such as OpenSSL to 
handle the encryption handshake and processing.  So when you set those up, 
there is no AT-TLS needed for encryption.  Same with the
TN3270 server and client, as long as you set that up with keys and parameters 
on the host side, and settings on the client side.

I'm thinking because of the name "Application Transparent" that AT-TLS was made 
for programs that DON'T have their own logic to call OpenSSL (or whatever) to 
do their own encryption.  Let's use clear-text FTP as an example.  So somehow, 
AT-TLS hooks into the processing and provides an encrypted "tunnel", kind of 
like VPN does, but only for that one application.  Does that sound correct?

If so, then the encryption is "transparent" to the FTP server code and FTP does 
not need to be changed, which I think is the whole idea here.
Yet we now have an encrypted session.  Does that sound correct?

Then if so, what happens on the FTP client side?  I certainly can't use the 
Windows FTP command, for example, because it's not setup for any kind of 
encryption.  That's kind of my big question here.

z/OS use of "legacy" programming languages

2020-06-30 Thread Frank Swarbrick
Some time ago I noticed that z/OS Language Environment has support for both 
"FORTRAN IV" and "VS FORTRAN" (FORTRAN 77 standard), even though the latest 
Fortran compiler hasn't been enhanced since 1993 (??).  I've been learning 
modern Fortran (standards Fortran 90, 95, 03 and 08) using GNU Fortran and 
actually quite like it, but I can't imagine using anything prior to the 1990 
standard.  Anyway, I am curious if anyone uses Fortran on z/OS in their shop, 
and if so, why?

Is Pascal also still supported/used?  I don't see any mention of it in LE 
documentation.  Are there any other "legacy" MVS languages still in use (i.e., 
ones that haven't been updated in the last 30 years...)?  I've seen mention of 
APL2 on MVS, and maybe even Smalltalk?

Just wondering!

I'm going to answer what I take as the tone of your
questions, rather than the specifics.

In a production environment, once a program has been
written and debugged, when it has been working fine for
years, you don't want to touch it, if at all possible.
Unless it needs updating, you just keep running it,
regardless of what language it was written in.

I someone wants to recompile a FORTRAN IV program with a
modern compiler, that person is taking the responsibility
for its future behavior, and that its behavior will match
what it was before. That person is also taking
responsibility for making sure that the source for the
program is actually the source that was compiled decades
ago, when there may be no one left from that programming
team. And think of the hours to be lost in creating tests,
running them, and going through all of the quality-control
paperwork involved; and if it's only in order to recompile
with a modern compiler, all that work and time is just to
end with the same functionality you already had.

During the time of the 370s, I knew of a company which kept
a 360 because it could do 1401 emulation in order to run a
critical program. While I have no actual knowledge, I have
little doubt that there are companies running old FORTRAN
code, RPG, COBOL Report Writer, and pretty much anything
else you can think of.

Downward compatibility means you can say, "If it ain't
broke, don't fix it."

Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

2020-06-30 Thread Allan Staller
Hopefully this will provide the clarity needed.

AT-TLS works at the physical layer.
FTPS and SFTP work at the logical layer

Although not mutually exclusive, If you are doing one, the other is unnecessary.

Start the flame wars! Shields up. Condition Red! AT-TLS vs. SFTP!

Do you know if either of those require AT-TLS?  When I installed and configured 
SSHD last (a couple of years ago) it did its own encryption.
I never worked with anything called FTPS.

Client and server programs like SSH/SSHD call programs such as OpenSSL to 
handle the encryption handshake and processing.  So when you set those up, 
there is no AT-TLS needed for encryption.  Same with the
TN3270 server and client, as long as you set that up with keys and parameters 
on the host side, and settings on the client side.

I'm thinking because of the name "Application Transparent" that AT-TLS was made 
for programs that DON'T have their own logic to call OpenSSL (or whatever) to 
do their own encryption.  Let's use clear-text FTP as an example.  So somehow, 
AT-TLS hooks into the processing and provides an encrypted "tunnel", kind of 
like VPN does, but only for that one application.  Does that sound correct?

If so, then the encryption is "transparent" to the FTP server code and FTP does 
not need to be changed, which I think is the whole idea here.
Yet we now have an encrypted session.  Does that sound correct?

Then if so, what happens on the FTP client side?  I certainly can't use the 
Windows FTP command, for example, because it's not setup for any kind of 
encryption.  That's kind of my big question here.

Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

2020-06-30 Thread Tom Brennan
Thanks Allan.  In TCP/IP programs I've written in C (both mainframe and 
non-mainframe), I've used connect(), send(), recv() and similar C 
functions for clear-text communication.  So I think that would be called 
the "logical layer".


And I'm assuming the "physical layer" would be at the point where 
software is talking to an OSA card.  In this case that would be the 
TCPIP address space, since my program doesn't talk directly to hardware.


That would mean AT-TLS comes into play via the TCPIP task, doing the 
encryption at that point, while my clear-text program has no idea and 
doesn't care.  Certificates and other encryption parameters would be 
handled by AT-TLS at that point.


That's the picture I have so far.

Now in my own program if I called OpenSSL functions like SSL_connect() 
or SSL_read(), then encryption would be done at the logical layer, and 
my own program would then be responsible for certificates.  AT-TLS would 
not be needed, well, unless an auditor doesn't trust my SSL code.  That 
actually could be a consideration even for things like SFTP I guess - 
there's your first flame :)

I'm going to answer what I take as the tone of your

In a production environment, once a program has been 
written and debugged, when it has been working fine for 
years, you don't want to touch it, if at all possible. 
Unless it needs updating, you just keep running it, 
regardless of what language it was written in.


I someone wants to recompile a FORTRAN IV program with a 
modern compiler, that person is taking the responsibility 
for its future behavior, and that its behavior will match 
what it was before. That person is also taking 
responsibility for making sure that the source for the 
program is actually the source that was compiled decades 
ago, when there may be no one left from that programming 
team. And think of the hours to be lost in creating tests, 
running them, and going through all of the quality-control 
paperwork involved; and if it's only in order to recompile 
with a modern compiler, all that work and time is just to 
end with the same functionality you already had.


During the time of the 370s, I knew of a company which kept 
a 360 because it could do 1401 emulation in order to run a 
critical program. While I have no actual knowledge, I have 
little doubt that there are companies running old FORTRAN 
code, RPG, COBOL Report Writer, and pretty much anything 
else you can think of.

SMS Data Class attribute Extended

2020-06-30 Thread PINION, RICHARD W.
We are attempting, on our QA LPAR, to use the SMS DC attributes,

Data Set Name Type  . . . . . : EXTENDED
  If Extended . . . . . . . . : PREFERRED
  Extended Addressability . . : YES

for all of our sequential data sets.  Of several hundred/thousands of dataset 
allocations, during the test
period, we ran into 4 ABENDS, 3 S213-94 and 1 S213-B8.  Which is pretty good, 
in my opinion.

IEC143I 213-94 - An OPEN macro instruction was attempted against an 
extended-format data set, but the access method is not BSAM or QSAM, or is BDAM 
load mode.

IEC143I 213-B8 - An OPEN was attempted against an extended-format data set with 
a DCB that specified EXCP. EXCP is not supported for extended-format data sets.

I would like to examine our SMF 14/15 records from our production LPAR to 
identify other potential problem
datasets.  I have an ancient user written assembler program, 1980's, that 
reports on SMF 14/15 records.  One
of the reported columns is MACREF, which has a test for EXCP processing.  If it 
was EXCP processing, the record
is reported with an "E" for that column.  I'm able to see all 14/15 activity 
that has activity for EXCP processing.
However, I noticed that SORT and ICEGENER use EXCP processing.   We didn't have 
any ABENDS with SORT
or ICEGENER.

Two questions,   1)  In addition to my ancient assembler program, can anyone 
recommend a free reporting tool,
that we could use to identify datasets not eligible for EXT format, and 2) Why 
does SORT/ICEGENER work against
EXT type datasets with EXCP process?

Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

2020-06-30 Thread Allan Staller
AT-TLS Operates at the transport layer of the OSI model.
SFTP (open SSH,...) operates at the session layer of the OSI model.

BTW, TLS has been supported "forever" by FTP, etc. The problem is, with TLS, 
the application needs to be modified to make TLS calls in the session layer. 
With AT-TLS, session layer TLS calls are moved to the transport layer and 
eliminated from the session layer. 
No application changes are needed.

Re: AT-TLS ? Very Basic Questions

2020-06-30 Thread Tom Brennan
I tried "Let's Encrypt" https://letsencrypt.org/ once for some web site 
names I have on a Linux server under my desk.  I can't remember why I 
didn't like it, but I ended up making my own CA cert to sign my https 
certificates, and then got the few people using the sites to import my 
CA into their browser.  Cheating a bit but it works great for isolated use.


But yes, if things like certificates could be all piled into one 
application and handled by one person in a company, things would get 
easier.  The first time I dealt with a certificate on the mainframe was 
for IBM's ITIM system which (the developer mentioned) had just switched 
to use OpenSSL.  We had multiple meetings with project leaders and 
others just to get a paid-for certificate in place (2 year expiration), 
when we probably could have created something self-signed with a 30 year 
expiration if we knew better :)

update when TLS1.x comes along.

But if I'm wrong with any of the general notes above, please correct me.

Client and server programs like SSH/SSHD call programs such as OpenSSL
to handle the encryption handshake and processing. So when you set
those up, there is no AT-TLS needed for encryption. Same with the
TN3270 server and client, as long as you set that up with keys and
parameters on the host side, and settings on the client side.
I'm thinking because of the name "Application Transparent" that AT-TLS
was made for programs that DON'T have their own logic to call OpenSSL
(or whatever) to do their own encryption. Let's use clear-text FTP as
an example. So somehow, AT-TLS hooks into the processing and provides
an encrypted "tunnel", kind of like VPN does, but only for that one
application. Does that sound correct?
If so, then the encryption is "transparent" to the FTP server code and
FTP does not need to be changed, which I think is the whole idea here.
Yet we now have an encrypted session. Does that sound correct?
Then if so, what happens on the FTP client side? I certainly can't use
the Windows FTP command, for example, because it's not setup for any
kind of encryption. That's kind of my big question here.
