Are you sure?

I thought that environment (after address) was one of the few places in REXX 
where quotes were unnecessary because what's typed there is regarded as a 
constant.

And, that if you actually wanted a variable's value to be used, you'd have to 
code

  address value varname

Even if what you said above was true, I doubt very much that capitalising the 
environment name would ever have make a measurable difference, bearing in mind 
how few times one would typically specify an address statement in a typical 
exec.

It's been years since I wrote any REXX on a mainframe, but I know I didn't 
uppercase my code back then ... and a quick look at current manuals shows 
sample code is sometimes in uppercase, and sometimes mixed case.

Is this idea that uppercase REXX is more efficient something that everyone here 
accepts?

It is not the default; it has to be enabled by job class.  When I first used it

You can also run duplicate batch jobs at the same time if you just feel like 
it; I have twenty running right now, with a thousand more sitting in the input 
queue.


This is a relatively recent enhancement to the operating system.
I don't recall if allowing this is default behavior or needs to be enabled.

You see it more often than you think.  Go do a 'd j,bpxas' or a 'd j,init', as 
examples.  It's common and helpful for others to have duplicates, like your HSM 
product, for instance (not commonly DFSMShsm).  You can also run duplicate

We replaced VPS with NPF, the "free" component of CommServer (not AOP).  We did

I am looking at the base IBM support in this area, The AOP. stuff.
Has anyone else done this? A Redbook by chance?

  And, yes, I know about McKinney and in some ways wish we'd gone there  a 
couple decades ago. The guy who supported this area at that time couldn't get 
the batch AFP to PCL working to our needs. So, we didn't.

   LRS has been silent, when asked about any short term renewal.

Yep, data class is stored in the VVDS, plain as day, right between the storage 
class and the management class for each dataset that has one.  If it doesn't 
have one, there are three bytes of X'00' between the storage class and length 
of the management class.

That shows the storage group but not the dataclass.

I’m pretty sure DATACLAS, for both disk and tape, is used during ACS routines 
and allocation in general, but isn’t ever stored anywhere. It’s a place for the 
system to get information when allocating the dataset, but then it’s discarded.

Is there a way with CA-1 or ISMF to determine what Dataclas a tape dataset used?



I have various sizes of tape in my TS7700.  I am trying to see what dataclas

All,



Do any of you have a copy of IBM AS-IS utility “KEYXFER”?   The copy I have is 
from 2006, was updated in 2018.   IBM has moved all their stuff into GITHUB 
now, and the README is there, but not the REXX code.   The code also used to 
live at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/s390/zos/tools/keyxfer/.  I'm able to get to 
the site, but cant download anything.



FYI, this utility is for exporting/importing PKDS keys out of ICSF.



I do have a ticket open with IBM on this, but they seem to be dragging their 
feet trying to put it back out on GITHUB.



If anyone has a copy, I’d appreciate someone sending it to me?







For the curious, here is the readme



keyxfer

A Key Transfer Tool

Introduction

The key transfer tool (KEYXFER) is a REXX exec that runs on MVS. KEYXFER 
facilitates the transfer of PKDS or CKDS key tokens between systems that use 
the Integrated Cryptographic Services Facility (ICSF).

The KEYXFER tool assumes the following:

1.  ICSF is running on the systems involved in the key transfer

2.  ICSF has an active Key Data Set (CKDS/PKDS)

For a PKA key token transfer the tool retrieves the token from the active PKDS 
and writes it to a data set (file). For a symmetric key token transfer the tool 
retrieves the token from the active CKDS and writes it to a data set (file).

The data set can then be transmitted to any number of systems. On each system 
the tool can be used to read the key token from the transmitted file and store 
it into the active PKDS or CKDS. The tokens are referenced by label.

The format of the command is illustrated below:

Syntax

KEYXFER   OPER, LABEL, DSN,  OPTION



OPER  = READ_PKDS reads from the transmitted data set

 WRITE_PKDS writes to the transmitted data set

 READ_CKDS reads from the transmitted data set

 WRITE_CKDS writes to the transmitted data set

LABEL = label of PKDS or CKDS record to be retreived/stored

DSN   = name of data set holding the token

OPTION= OVERWRITE a label in the PKDS or CKDS.

 If OVERWRITE is specified in the option

 field then an existing label will

 be overwritten with the token from the

 transmitted data set.

DATA SET: A PS or PDS data set can be used. An LRECL=80 is recommended, but not 
required The information stored in the KEYXFER data set consists of the 
following: Date KDS label Length of token Token Notes External key tokens can 
be received on any ICSF system. If the key token is an internal key token (see 
ICSF Application Programmers Guide) then it is encrypted under the ICSF master 
key of the system. Transferring the key token requires that the receiving 
systems use the same ICSF master key.

If ICSF services are RACF protected (CSFSERV) then access will be required by 
the user for the CSNDKRC, CSNDKRR, and CSNDKRW services for PKDS transfers or 
CSNBKRC, CSNBKRR and CSNBKRW for CKDS transfers.

Samples

•   Write the key token stored in the active PKDS under the label 
PKDS.KEY.LABEL to the data set TEMP.MEM

KEYXFER WRITE_PKDS, PKDS.KEY.LABEL, TEMP.MEM

•   Read the key token contained in the data set TEMP.MEM and write the 
token to the active PKDS under the label PKDS.KEY.LABEL. (If the label already 
exists in the PKDS the operation will fail.)

KEYXFER READ_PKDS, PKDS.KEY.LABEL, TEMP.MEM

•   Read the key token contained in the data set TEMP.MEM and write the 
token to the active PKDS under the label PKDS.KEY.LABEL (If the label already 
exists in the PKDS the token for that label will be overwritten.)

KEYXFER READ_PKDS, PKDS.KEY.LABEL, TEMP.MEM, OVERWRITE

•   Read the key token contained in the data set TEMP.MEM and write the 
token to the active PKDS. Since no PLABEL was specified the label Contained in 
the file is used as the label for the token on the new system.

KEYXFER READ_PKDS, , TEMP.MEM

•   Write the key

That would require RACF to allow automation to issue a force command (yes, I 
know I can set it MVS.FORCEARM.STC.AXR*.* specifically). I have been at great 
pains to install a policy where Automation is not even allowed to cancel, much 
less force anything. Not that I am very successful now that I'm not responsible 
for RACF anymore.

I still think that AXR and its AXRnn should show up on a D A,L. As long as they

I know for a fact that DETACH causes (via some route) the ECB to be posted.


To be snide, I'd say that you know for a fact that in all the cases you've seen 
DETACH causes the ECB to be posted.
That's not the same as "know for a fact". Fortunately, it is a fact.

DETACH processing "steals" the field used to hold the address of the attach ECB 
for a while so that the system can wait for the task to terminate. Once that 
has happened, DETACH processing posts the ATTACH-specified ECB.


I always WAIT on the ATTACH ECB and it always works.

Isn't that what began this whole discussion? You wanted to wait for the DETACH 
from your recovery to complete and wanted to do so by waiting on the ATTACH ECB 
(your mainline had already been waiting on it as part of an ECB list). You 
can't just do that because you'd get a 301 abend -- the ECB is already marked 
waiting and nothing in the path that would have gotten you into recovery would 
have changed that ECB. So "it always works" is not "a fact". Perhaps what is a 
fact is the wait that you have chosen to do (in the mainline) always works. To 
avoid the 310 abend, the question would arise of "can you just change the ECB 
not to be waiting anymore?" and the answer would be at best "maybe". Perhaps 
fortunately, the better response is "there is no need to do so if you're going 
to do a DETACH and want to continue only once the task has terminated".

Interesting; centigrade is the one system I use nowadays without having to 
think much about it.  It's so easy:  0s are cold, 10s are cool, 20s are warm, 
30s are hot.

I get kilometers but I think in miles.  For short measurements I like 
centimeters and millimeters, but I couldn't tell you how tall I am in cm.
I'm happy in either pounds or kilos, but I'd have to calculate to tell you how 
many kg I weigh.  But centigrade makes complete sense to me.

I agree on Celsius.  The name disturbs me too.  Centigrade is more pleasant for

Re: Copying Extended format datasets between partitions

2020-07-14 Thread Jackson, Rob
RECFM=U works fine with FTP.  MODE B and TYPE E are your best friends for 
FTPing between mainframes.

That said, I would never FTP hundreds of GB between LPARs with shared DASD.  
Just dump/restore and done.  As far as I know, FTP doesn't work with VSAM (PS-E 
is fine though), so you'll have to dump/restore (with or without FTP) 
anyway--or do some catalog and SMS work.

Because of reasons. ;-)
Seriously: it is better to make it simpler and faster.

Your method: dump, ftp, restore.
Other methods: a) dump, restore. b) copy.
Which is faster?
Which consume less CPU?
Which require less disk space for intermediate copies?

Not to mention issues with RECFM=U and ftp.

Ah, the constant rebranding and re-lingo-ing.  It must really help sales.  The 
last time I had IBM storage, Global Mirror was PPRC/XD and "z/OS Global Mirror" 
was GDPS/XRC.  And Metro Mirror was PPRC synchronous.  I can't see how GDPS/XRC 
would work with non-unique addresses--at least between primary and secondary, 
since they're both online to the SDMs (right?  getting fuzzy on it).  Currently 
we use HUR (love it), but I don't believe it would work with non-unique 
addresses either.

We mirror with XRC, which I believe is Global Mirror. (I cannot keep the 
current lingo straight.) In my shop, we have a business need to put any 
device--DASD or tape--online to any LPAR regardless of location. In order to do 
that, device addresses *must* be unique. If you have absolutely no need to do 
that, then I don't think uniqueness is required. OTOH is costs little to make 
them unique. If you don't do it from the get-go, it will be very difficult in 
the future.

Re: Two Processors and One IODF

2020-07-11 Thread Jackson, Rob
I don't know if anyone has pointed it out, but if this is a brand new, vanilla 
CEC, before you even have to worry about an IODF, you need an IOCDS.  Generally 
you create that deck from an IODF, and I can't imagine you would choose not to. 
 All of our CECs are defined in one IODF.  For a new machine across the state, 
we sent the IOCDS deck for the target CEC (and common ICC configs) to the CE, 
and he put them on a thumb drive; we then ran stand-alone IOCP to load the HSA. 
 Then with any (I would hope) form of replication you use, the IODF needed for 
all the recovery LPARs is "just already there" on your recovery 
SYS1.IPLPARM/IODF volume.

Our DASD CUs and device addresses are different (I'm thinking they had to be 
for either flavor of replication), but we don't have that many, so we don't 
have to worry about running out.  Our LPAR numbers are the same on all CECs, 
and our OS configs are defined only once and are used on all respective LPARs.

There's nothing to it, and I don't know of a single reason not to have one 
common IODF.

Settle down, R.S.  I was agreeing with you, and I certainly wasn't putting

TS7740 definitely wasn't "cheap."  Obviously it was flawed.

I _think_ our TS7760s are described as RAID-S.  I forget how that differs from 
RAID-6, though I know it's supposed to tolerate more than two disk failures per 
array.

At risk of devolving into a long tangential thread, does anyone remember the 
RVA/SVA disk boxes?  I believe they were RAID-6.  I _know_ for a fact they were 
the first storage subsystems we had that didn't require a separate control 
unit.  They were awesome.  I want to say they were like 600 GB each.  Wow, how 
times have changed.  :)

Disclaimer: I HAVE NEVER SAID THAT.
RAID is fallible. Everything is fallible.
I used RAID rhetorically, just as example of "pretty good".
And even then I urged to make backups.

Few words about RAID:
RAID is more reliable than single disk. Assuming same reliablity of disk used 
in RAID.

RAID is more reliable when it has spare drives inside. No waiting for CE. Less 
time needed to start rebuild process.

RAID6 is more reliable than RAID5. Reasons: Data on RAID6 will survive failure 
of 2 drives within a group. The second reason is time to rebuild. The more 
capacious disk the more time is needed to rebuild. At this time there is no 
protection.

Remote copy (PPRC, XRC, SRDF, HRC) is yet another level of protection.
Disk failure will not be replicated. ;-)

Side notes:
Sometimes disk failure is not just isolated case. Sometimes it is a symptom of 
epidemic. What kind? Some of them: disk came form same lot, which is bad. 
Earthquake or just some accident in server room (someone hit the cabinet by 
accident ...and didn't reported it). Or microcode problem (search for HP SSD - 
horror story).
Conclusion: when you observer disk failure, pay attention. It may be isolated 
case or FIRST failure you observe.

Poor quality of the array. It is rather problem of entry level home devices, 
but it does happen. Some guy bought "cheap" raid box, there disks and ...one 
day the array failed. No data, accessible, similar raid box does not recognize 
anything on disks. Everything looks like new and working, but there is no data. 
Of course that person did not make any backup for obvious reason: he has RAID. 
This is real story. After that I observed more cases like this one. Obviously 
no support available. Just warranty, but "c'mon guy, ligths are blinking, you 
can format disks and used it - no failure".

Fun little note on RAID:  it is fallible.  The last Sunday of October 2016 I 
got a call bright and early because our VTS (TS7740) had shut down.  Turns out 
we had a "cache" HDD failure at around 4 AM, and then a second one failed at 
around 7 AM, before the first one had been rebuilt on a spare.  RAID-5 could 
not accommodate it.  Because of IBM politics, we had no tape until Monday at 
16:00.  I am ashamed to say that I sort of took tape for granted.  It was 
astonishing how much of our processing depended on it.

R.S. is spot on:  make backups.  Because of the trauma from this one event, we 
now have a three-way VTS grid, synchronous-mirrored SANs, and two mainframes on

Yes, it is possible to have VTS without real tapes on backend. Some vendors do 
offer only "tapeless tapes", with no option to connect real tape library.
However from OS point of view there is difference between disk (DASD) and tape 
(offline storage).
Price difference is also worth to consider, however I mean the logic.
Even the biggest, cheapest and really huge DASD will not protect you form human 
and application (and other) errors. But backup will do it.
That's why we do backups. We don't afraid of disk failure, because we have 
RAID, spare modules and possibly remote copy. However we do backups.
If you insist on DASD, you may (theoretically) connect another DASD box 
dedicated for backups only. And even (logically) disconnect it between backup 
sessions. However it is IMHO worse version of VTS.

Note: I do not discuss here things like price (initial, per terabyte), 
compression, thruput, scalability, RAID, etc.

Years ago, in Silicon Valley, I worked on ACS/OBS WYLBUR. We had a P/390 that I 
had tuned the I/O for to really speed it up. ACS also sold time on their 
systems.

Contractually, we were only allowed to charge access costs for the P/390. It 
was not to be a "production" machine. So developers could buy access to it, but 
not on a "per CPU time" charge and related. We did have a few takers for the 
P/390.

The system Charles has mentioned has certain caveats and issues. One can't 
control their z/OS image, because the DASD for the RES is controlled by the 
data center.

If one were to obtain a z/OS license, and were to get it to run under KVM, then 
one could have a "production" system, where all source is handled, compiles 
done, etc., while all system level testing is done on another image.

There are costs with this that have to be overcome.

Let's take a look into the future: IBM is going to put out a release of VM 
and/or z/OS that will not run on a z/?? CEC and that is the one you have (or 
SUSE/RHEL, etc. does the same with KVM etc.). You will now have to migrate to 
another machine. Can you get that machine on the used market at a good price?

Meanwhile, you must have HLASM and probably want to have the toolkit 
(separately chargeable as I understand it). You will need all the compilers 
being used COBOL, PL/1, c/C++, etc.. Can you get them under a development 
license?

Ok, let's say you can. You may need to have a small machine that is used for 
compiles so that you do not have to pay for the compilers on the bigger box.

Given that you are going to have those who are doing development where they 
will need to have multiple CPUs, what you want is the slowest machine you can 
get (sub-model?) but with 4-6 General CPs for race condition testing.

Now depending on the number of people/entities interested in this system, one 
may need multiple LPARs and possibly CECs to handle the workload.

If I could (and because of who I work for, and for those of you who think I 
work for Humana, I did at one time, but things change...), I would go to a 
University or college and propose this: A Mainframe Academic center.  And I 
would tie that with somehow teaching COBOL (it ain't dead, and it is still 
growing), and possibly CICS & DB2. If IBM still does an academic licensing 
thing, then this is the cheapest way to go that I am aware of. And if you can 
get the school to do an open semester year tuition allowing one to do self 
directed studies

Believe me, with all the outsourced contractors I deal with who have degrees in 
IT Theory and absolutely no PROGRAMMING experience outside of some OO language, 
I could see this being something that might get some traction since with 
COVID-19 we just found out that we can do classes virtually to anywhere (those 
of us who have been working from Home for decades already knew that).

And you might get certain companies to throw in their tools, such as z/XDC for 
a low price.

Ok, maybe more than 2 cents, but these are my observations having done some of 
this before Outsourcing organizations became Cloud companies.

THE HEADACHE not yet mentioned is, one may not be able to get support for this 
system. So one may have to wait until a production machine somewhere hits your 
problem to get an APAR/PTF.

Steve Thompson

A model to look at might be the IBM Innovation Center, Dallas.

The price is higher than what I picture as your target: $550/month and up IIRC. 
You get two dedicated VM virtual machines: one that runs CMS and that you use

you IPL z/OS. The z/OS -- any current version that you want -- runs from shared

1. Determining what our zIIP and non-zIIP capacity needs would be. In other 
words, since we didn’t have zIIPs before we weren’t sure how much of our 
workload would actually run on the zIIPs.

2. The biggest thing was that we are an Adabas/Natural shop, so we were hoping 
to run both those products zIIP-enabled. However, we have a home-grown security 
system that’s implemented by several thousand lines of assembler code that runs 
as a part of the Natural session, and this code was doing things like issuing 
SVCs and examining the current TCB, and those things don’t work when you’re 
running zIIP-enabled. So the challenge was if we could rewrite all that code to 
work on zIIPs. (And see “how much of our workload could run zIIP-enabled” 
above.)

We were able to get the code rewritten, and we’ve been very happily running 
Adabas and Natural zIIP-enabled ever since.

I just gave a presentation to our user community about the z10 BC → z14 ZR1 
upgrade we did last August. One of the most challenging things about this 
upgrade was our z14 has zIIPs, which we didn’t have before. But try explaining 
zIIPs and CP capacity levels, or processor characterization in general! Those 
are totally irrational, except in the context of how mainframe software is 
priced.

Re: Mainframe co-op

2020-07-03 Thread Jackson, Rob
I think _I_ know the answer to the big question for IBM on Z.  I do suspect 
it's incompatible with their culture.  I think they're bound and determined to 
run the platform into the ground.

I would gladly volunteer my free time to admin a public platform and support 
users; I doubt I am alone.  I grew up in the UNIX/Windoze world.  This platform 
is superior.  I would that it will continue.

Perhaps this kind of spirit is not compitible with spirit of IBM?

Perhaps one not only needs to imagine what could have happened, but also why 
something does not happen / have not happened?

No, I do not have the answers. I think a good question is worth a thousand 
answers, perhaps.

Re: RACF-SailPoint

The exits are needed only if you use the Online Interceptor (send RACF admin 
commands to SailPoint).  We do not use that; I didn't put my foot down (but I 
would have); instead, I gently steered them to nightly/on-demand Aggregation 
only, and that has been good enough.

Re: RACF-SailPoint

2020-07-02 Thread Jackson, Rob
As with Rex, I deal only with the Connector.  The install is kind of kludgy, 
but it's not bad.  If I remember correctly, the security setup for the service 
accounts (requires two) was not well documented.

Unlike Rex, we use ours for dynamic provisioning right now.  Users request and 
get approvals for entitlements in SailPoint; they are immediately provisioned 
in RACF.

The hardest part, by far, was mapping RACF resources to the SailPoint 
structures on the other end.  They still don't match up quite right (and TSO 
segments, etc., are still manual; they couldn't figure that out).  The folks on 
that end speak AD; RACF is a foreign concept to them.  It took them at least a 
year, and perhaps eighteen months, to roll it out.

A few things if you implement it:
Don't wait until it fails--grow your QUEUE file by at least ten times over 
delivered values right at the start.
Expect issues with Aggregation (we use online; offline _sounds_ problematic); 
it is slow and fails often.  The latest Gateway has improved it a lot, but it 
has taken years.
When de-provisioning users, SP disconnects all groups; you will find the need 
to set up a default group for most/all users with no permits and code that into 
SP as something it cannot remove.

Also, and my biggest gripe, which is only operational:  we have a limited 
number of sysplexes and RACF databases, so dev SP points at the sysprog 
sandbox; QA SP points at our "production integration" environment, and prod SP 
points at prod/dev.  I do not know how many times I have had to recover the 
RACF database in dev/QA from the console because the SP folks have 
deprovisioned all the sysprog accounts; they are also fond of removing groups 
from the operators, etc.  Forgive them, for they know not what they do, I 
suppose.

On the bright side, the user exits are in REXX and are easy to use and 
implement.  Lots of exit points as well.  (One we use, for instance, cleans up 
user datasets and aliases upon deprovisioning.)

There are other things I'm forgetting right now; if I think of any, I'll post 
again.

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.

Wha...?  I might have misunderstood you, but it sounds like you're saying I can 
1) collect all the REXX execs I want to transfer to the mainframe, 2) ZIP them 
up (using PKZIP or WinZIP or 7-ZIP or whatever), 3) IND$FILE the .zip file to 
the mainframe, and then 4) ...here's where I bog down.  Is there a mainframe 
utility that can read .zip files?

And if there is (I never dreamt that), maybe I actually bog down at step 3:
Do I do the transfer in text or binary?

Are you sure you're not just having me on?

Even if you are, it suddenly occurs to me that there's a PC-based utility that 
handles XMIT files, and I think I have a copy left over from an old project.  I 
can bundle them all up in a XMIT file, copy that to the host, then RECEIVE it 
there.

Sometimes all that's allowed, though.  Some of my clients lock up FTP, and make 
me use IND$FILE via whatever local 3270 emulation they use.

This can be a major pain.  Whenever I start at a new installation, one of my 
first jobs is to load up a bunch of REXX tools I've written over the years.
If I have to do them one at a time, it's a big bottleneck.  Most apps of that 
sort allow you to set up a list of files - but you have to enter the list 
manually, one by one, providing the filename on your PC and the target DSN on 
the mainframe, so it's not saving anything (and is a one-time job, after all).  
Last time I had to deal with it I reverse-engineered the format used for 
multi-file transfers and had VBA create a longer list for me.  I felt a fine, 
self-congratulatory glow at having hacked the system, but really, it shouldn't 
have been necessary.

Tom's opinion:  Top posting is like a meeting where one person talks, everybody 
hears it, and the conversation continues without having to explain the whole 
meeting each time.  When someone new comes along though, it would be nice to 
have a chronological history of what happened before - that's bottom posting.  
And that includes archiving when the "someone new" might be reading the 
conversation years later.

I like top posting because most of my work is real-time conversations.
If someone really wants bottom posting to catch up or for whatever reason, then 
it doesn't seem too hard for them to make a script or find a program to reverse 
the order of the conversation locally.  I do that manually every once in a 
while when someone at work says, "Tom, can you go through this month-long email 
thread and try to help?"  Ouch.  So the first thing I do is start with a 
notepad window open and make notes from the bottom up, not only reversing the 
email string, but also trying to weed out only what I really need to better 
understand the issue.

Now I sometimes do a combination like Curtis just did, where I'll include 
portions of the original email and make comments underneath each portion.  I'll 
usually do that by top posting with a copy/paste of just the part I'm 
referencing.  I rarely do the "See my response in red/green/blue below" 
intermixed in the entire original email.  When people do that to me, I often 
have trouble finding that one little red word somewhere in the pile.

sticks out like a sore thumb to me.  :)

Outlook or OWA is required; access to private email service is blocked while on

Top-posting isn't enforced.  Didn't you see my awesome manual job?  I could 
edit quoted text.  I cannot control the legal disclaimer; that's added after it 
leaves the Outbox.  It's all audit; don't even get me started on Domain

THANK YOU. Yes, PASSIVEIGNOREADDR is the key (and BTW you can then eliminate 
CCC with its security exposure).

Shows what a kludge FTP is. The client says "Let's go into passive mode. Tell 
me what IP address to use, and I will ignore it. Thank you. Because after all, 
I already know your IP address."

BTW, with EPSV4 I do *not* see 227 response would be (, , , ,8,106). Instead I 
see a 229 response:

EZA1701I >>> EPSV
SC3311 getReply: entered

229 Entering Extended Passive Mode (|||2158|)
SC5291 epsvReply: entered

SC5240 parseEPSVreply: i 9 tmpstr (|||2158|)
SC5249 parseEPSVReply: delimiter is |/4f

But no matter. EPSV4 seems to be a nice-to-have. PASSIVEIGNOREADDR is the key.

Thanks all! Thanks much! Let me try to do one reply here to hold down the noise.

> active mode is the one using PORT; passive mode uses PASV

Thank you! It's a detail but I want to have the details right. Details are of 
the essence here. What *exactly* does the server send? On the client end I see

SC1373 initDsConnection: entered
SC2848 sendCmd: entered
EZA1701I >>> PASV
SC3311 getReply: entered
SC4479 getNextReply: entered with waitForData = TRUE
227 Entering Passive Mode (10,200,40,20,8,106)

Where *exactly* did the client get that 10.200.40.20 from? What *does* the 
serve send to convey "open your data connection on this address"?

Correct, the 227 is the server response.  The first four 
comma-delimited bytes-in-decimal are the server IP; the second two are the 
port:  256*8+106.

In other news:

- "Switching to another type of FTP" is non-trivial because the use of FTP is 
embedded in another product that builds control files on the fly. It would be a 
development project to use "a different FTP." Not out of the question, but a 
development project nonetheless.
- Both ends are z/OS FWIW. There is a mix of "legacy" and zFS. That is all 
under control presently.

Perfect; that should make it easier.
In SYSFTPD on the client side, the first of the below sets PASV; you 
have that.  The second
tells the client to ignore the returned IP and stick with the one it 
opened;
the third tells the server to use EPSV and not to respond with one in 
the first place (227 response would be (, , , ,8,106))
FWFRIENDLY  TRUE;
PASSIVEIGNOREADDR TRUE;
EPSV4 TRUE;

Is that right?

Right, including GDSs.  The only thing I can't make it do is wildcard 
DSNs, though wildcarding OMVS files is fine.

- Big question on SFTP: does it support anything like SITE FILETYPE=JES/GET 
jcl_file system_messages ? That is, submit a job and wait for completion? 
Without that it is a re-architecting, not a re=writing project.

The manual says it supports JES2 and JES3 job submissions, status, and 
spool-file transfers; I've never tried this.

- No program objects at this point but possibly in the future.

It supports PDSE; I've never had a need to send a program object from 
distributed to MVS or vice versa, so I dunno about that.

- Yes, having to install another product is a HUGE obstacle. Not impossible, 
not saying Dovetail is not wonderfulness, just the reality of sales is that 
"you have to install this other product in order to try our product" is always 
a huge obstacle.

But it is free, and it's so good, we've never had to have support 
(sorry, Kirk).

- > FTP's dual port architecture is simply a nightmare. Yeah, it always seemed 
so to me. Why do you need two sessions -- by default initiated in opposite 
directions -- to transfer both files and control information?

I agree!

Re: How is Passive FTP with TLS and NAT supposed to work?

2020-06-12 Thread Jackson, Rob
Before I found out about Co:Z I used shell scripts and REXX in OMVS to copy the 
files back and forth from MVS datasets to OMVS file systems (if sending to the 
mainframe, they would follow up the copy with a SSH and execute a script with a 
table of DSNs with DCBs to copy to a MVS dataset . . . or supply their own DCB 
and dataset name).  It was very cumbersome indeed.  Co:Z makes all that go 
away; it's simple to install, implement, and use.  Highly recommended.

Re: How is Passive FTP with TLS and NAT supposed to work?

2020-06-12 Thread Jackson, Rob
Well, your point is made und understood, but active mode is the one using PORT; 
passive mode uses PASV.  They both have their FW/load balancer issues.

We tend to use a variety of "fixes" for the various issues, given our 
convoluted (typical?) environment.  EPSV can help.  Some clients have the 
option to ignore PASV IP returned.  Our load balancers host our server certs in 
some cases so they can decrypt and modify the IP.  Our MFT proxy cluster has 
multiple nodes of FTP server adapter pairs, and each can be defined to return 
the same IP in the PASV response (they are session-break proxies, so they don't 
use the MFT servers' certs for encryption; they use their own); this IP would 
be the exposed forwarding VIP on the internet.

There are other things, I'm sure I'm forgetting.  Switch to SFTP, and life gets 
much easier--most of the time.

Subject: How is Passive FTP with TLS and NAT supposed to work?

[External Email. Exercise caution when clicking links or opening attachments.]

X-Posted IBMMAIN and IBMTCP. Apologies. This is a question that is both urgent 
for us and perhaps a little obscure.

With Passive FTP, the server uses a PORT command to say to the client "open the 
data connection on this IP address." Unfortunately with NAT that is an internal 
address that is meaningless at the client. Many firewalls or routers that 
support NAT are apparently smart enough to translate that PORT command from an 
internal to an external address, and everything works wonderfully.

The wrinkle comes with TLS: the control connection is encrypted and 
inaccessible to the firewall or router.

Enter CCC:
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_2.3.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r3.ha
lz001/ftpcastlsrfclevel.htm
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4217#page-19

CCC says "stop encrypting the control connection (so the router or firewall can 
see and translate it).

Apparently -- and this is where my knowledge gets fuzzy -- the RFC now requires 
that the partners close the control connection at that point, but z/OS FTP 
perhaps does not support that (?).

CCC has security red flags all over it, which is understandable, and it looks 
like we may be encountering a firewall or router that does not support it, or 
perhaps does not support the non-RFC version of it.

I am asking here "what is the 'right' answer?" How is passive FTP supposed to 
work over a TLS session with NAT in effect?

We still use SleavyTrieve+ in production. Crap, we have some RACF reports, 
written over 28 years ago (before my time) which use EZTP to parse the output 
of an "LU *". I really should replace them all with something using
IRRDBU00 output and ICETOOL along the path of RACFICE. But "we're going away"

Re: Looking for clarification/guidance on SMTP DD FREE/SPIN

2020-05-15 Thread Jackson, Rob
Sounds right to me, but in REXX, I've always just done the following:

"ALLOC FI(MAIL) SYSOUT(B) WRITER(SMTP) LRECL(80) RECFM(F)"

Then open, write to it, close it, and free it; repeat.

Subject: Looking for clarification/guidance on SMTP DD FREE/SPIN

[External Email. Exercise caution when clicking links or opening attachments.]

I am designing a long-running Rexx program that will from time to time generate 
an e-mail via the SMTP server. The idea is to allocate a DD
SYSOUT=(B,SMTP) and write the SMTP commands to it. I've never done that before 
so I have some questions:

- Am I correct in my assumption that I will have to "spin" the dataset before 
the SMTP server will pick it up?
- Assuming Yes to the first question, am I correct (a.) that 
FREE=CLOSE,SPIN=UNALLOC on the DD will get the records over to SMTP on EXECIO 
(FINIS; but that (b.) at that point the DD "no longer exists" -- that I will 
get an error if I try to open it again? (Recall the program is "long-running" 
and needs to generate multiple e-mails "from time to time."
They need to go out more or less as created, not in a big batch later on.)
- Not a huge deal if so, I guess. I can use BPXWDYN to allocate my DD again and 
again rather than JCL. Anyone have any better ideas?

Thanks. Outside-the-above-box suggestions cheerfully considered. I'm pretty 
much set on Rexx, e-mails, and "long-running with multiple e-mails from time to 
time" but will consider other possibilities.

Right, it appears to be magic -- "just say EXECIO and presto there's the record 
count in STEM.0" -- but under the covers it is reading through the whole 
dataset and counting.

Rexx is all 31-bit, right? So the limit would presumably be something in the 1 
to 2 GB range. That is not an implausibly huge dataset. 1GB is what? 800 
cylinders or somewhat more, depending on blocking, short tracks, etc.?

Agree Charles. It's sort of hidden and would need a large memory allocation for 
the stem.

The issue is not whether IBM sanctions Hercules; in fact, IBM employees were 
involved in developing Hercules. Thw iaauw ia that it is illegal to run 
licensed software on Hercules without a license giving you the right to do so.

Note that even if IBM does decide to license, e.g., z/OS, for use on Hercules, 
the price may be more than you are willing to pay.

In my opinion, IBM will never sanction Hercules.

I think that mentioning Hercules in the specific context of MVS 3.8j or
S/390 Linux or other free / non-licensed OSs is probably okay.

Doing so in a way that shows that you understand and respect the licensing 
situation is probably a good thing.

I'll bite, since no one else has.  What's wrong with Interpret/Value()?  I have 
used both to great benefit before, when there didn't seem to be a good--or 
possible--alternative.  I thought they were both very nice features of the

What other reason not to?  Enlighten me.

And that IP address may have been assigned by DHCP.  DHCP may retain the 
association and disclose it on request.  But DHCP might generate a surrogate 
host name, a transformation of the IP address it assigned.
Some might consider making such information generally available a security 
risk.  There's a (weak) argument there for choosing opaque hostnames.

Re: DFDSS copy to pre-allocated dsn

2019-05-16 Thread Jackson, Rob
I don't know for sure if OUTDD works exactly like OUTDY; I was wondering.  I 
used (no longer a DSS shop) OUTDY to list candidate volumes; COPY makes only 
one copy, whether it exists on one volume or is spread across multiple ones.  
Anyway, since this is non-SMS managed, it can be on only one volume--assuming 
it's really HFS.  I guess the same restriction would apply to ZFS.

So you are making 3 copies on 3 different OUTDDNAMES?
If it is one dataset on 3 volumes it would be one OUTDDNAME, right?

Re: DR Failover

2019-05-07 Thread Jackson, Rob
Yes, we have run extended tests.  Yes, the CBU-test ten-day limit comes into 
play.  We have burned more than one CBU for a given DR test to accommodate our 
current DR folks' requirements.  (Interestingly, if you CBU your specialty 
engines, they can't automatically downgrade you if you have an active LPAR 
based solely on them . . . and I won't say anything else about that; they 
definitely downgrade you automatically otherwise.  Though they will call you 
about the expired entitlement when the code prevents the downgrade.)

On 3, we don't have any issues, as far as I know; we haven't switched actual 
prod to the DR infrastructure.  I don't think any of our contracts would 
prohibit it, and I don't think any of our vendors would frown on it.  Perhaps 
it's wishful thinking, but I think most mainframe ISVs are pretty mature about 
it and know their customers largely are not cheating.  We've paid extra for 
CUoD for special events to be fair and honest to our vendors; no one should 
have to pay for a legitimate DR test, in my very humble opinion.  If something 
goes very wrong, and you get stuck at DR for a while, I suppose that would be 
different . . . .

(Resurrecting an old thread) We're being 'urged' to demonstrate that we can 
fail over to our internal DR site, run for a while, then fail back. As I 
indicated previously, we've done countless short tests but never allowed 
production to run in DR; hence no need to fail back. My question here is not 
technical. Our DR site (self-owned and managed) runs normally with a single CP 
supported by enough CBU to run production. We have purchased several full power 
tests to enable up to 10 days of testing per outing. If you have a similar 
setup,

1. Have you performed an extended full-power test?

2. Does the 10-day testing limit come into play?

3. From our perspective, we are only testing, but we would be dealing with real 
production data in and out. Will this lead to a contractual conundrum?

Never got traction on two of my questions, which are independent of technology.

-- During a failover (test I would presume), who actually performs the DR 
procedure whatever it is? Sysprogs, operators, production control folks, or 
someone else? Has anyone dared to bring in a non-technical person like a 
manager? This question is crucial to business resiliency because, depending the 
reason for failover, your top technical folks may be indisposed for an extended 
duration.

-- If you stayed in the DR environment long enough to have captured/updated 
live customer data, how did you eventually return to the production 
environment? This question is crucial to business resiliency because at some 
point down the line, you have to return or, as the poem goes, settle in for a

It's extremely powerful but oh so onerous to install, maintain, and administer. 
 They will push implementation services, and you will wish you'd bought them 
before it's over if you go it on your own.

What are you planning on doing with it?  If it is just MFT, I would highly 
recommend taking a good hard look at MOVEit first (unless you have a bunch of 
Connect:Direct you have to deal with, since SI/SFG does come with CDSA; you may 
end up not having much choice).

Keep in mind too that you won't need only SFG/SI.  You will need SSP and SEAS 
(if you want to do SFTP; that's another joy) as well.  And you probably will 
want CC.  There are other pieces that have to be installed and configured on 
separate servers (SSPcm and Perimeter Server), but they are part of SSP.  In 
short, there are a lot of pieces.

One more thing, IBM just recently outsourced support and development (I think) 
of the suite to Syncsort, if that sways you either way.

The long result code (040B0425) seems to mean "Verify DADSM SCRATCH request; 
enqueue on SYSDSN failed."
What can cause this to occur?  Someone perhaps had the dataset open for 
browsing, perhaps?

Maybe find out what has it allocated at the time and fix the problem before it 
happens.  Backup/migration perhaps?  The DADSM SCRATCH code indicates this:

X'04'   X'0B'   ENQRET  X'25'   Verify DADSM SCRATCH request; enqueue on SYSDSN

Subject: IEC331I 042-006 occurs during GDG roll in process

[External Email]

We have a job that runs dozens of times per day, copying a circular log file to 
a GDG backup.  On occasion we get something like the following:

 IEC331I 042-006(040B0425),INIT,MICR01PR,SCRT,IGG0CLH0
 IEC331I VOL,BK0068,NAME,PROD.XMTIN.MICR.MICRDLY.BKP.G1514V00

The issue does not cause the job itself to fail in any way, or even set a high 
return code for the job.

What seems to be occurring is when z/OS rolls in a new generation of a GDG, and 
that GDG already has reached it's maximum number of generations, it deletes the 
oldest generation.  Except in this case that delete process fails.  The new 
generation is still rolled in, but the old one remains out there indefinitely.  
This does not cause any immediate issues, but (if I am recalling correctly), 
once the G name rolls back around (from , I assume, back to  or 
0001, and then to the specific number -- 1514 in this example) z/OS attempts to 
roll in a generation with this same name.  Only its already cataloged, so that 
fails.

We currently have our AO software look for IEC331I and when it sees it it sends 
an email to the development group, who then has to create a job to have the 
dataset deleted, which is then run by the operators.  Rather a pain.  I'm 
wondering if there's a way to actually automate the process to delete the 
dataset.  Has anyone done this?

Thanks,
Frank

All,
We've retired an application and are in the process of cleanup.  Does anyone 
know of a way to identify what is allocating a given dataset if it's never 
opened?  SMF cuts 14 & 15 records only if the dataset is open.  Other than 
scratch, rename, and other VTOC changes, I haven't found an SMF record that 
contains the dataset name, just the DD name or unit address.  The MONITOR 
option in CONSOLExx can track the deallocation in SYSLOG/OPERLOG, but for TSO 
sessions you can't tie that back to a CLIST or command.  For batch jobs, you 
can eventually tie it back to the step.  The only other way I've seen is the 
hit-or-miss enqueue check and contact the TSO session owner.

Poking the I HATE EBCDIC bear? :)

When I wrote up some doc showing application programmers how to setup mainframe 
SSH keys, the example showed scp to transfer the text public key to the 
non-mainframe box.  It was less error-prone since the translation to ASCII was 
built in and (I think) impossible to turn off.

Re: CTC conventions

2018-10-17 Thread Jackson, Rob
Indeed.  And I didn't follow their guidelines either, though I certainly 
borrowed from them.  I was loathe to eat into two address ranges.  Instead, I 
have always picked one range, added the even-odd nibble for direction, then a 
nibble for the LPAR number, and then the device number.  Never had enough LPARs 
or independent CECs to worry about it further.

Just to be clear, a CTC naming convention is not tied uniquely to ESCON or 
FICON architecture. We implemented a scheme in the mid-90s under ESCON well 
before the advent of FICON. It's still in effect.

The scheme we adopted (at IBM's suggestion) uses CEC, partition, direction (in 
or out for XCF) to construct a four-digit unit number. It has served us well 
for decades. The only 'cost' is that lots of addresses are reserved for CTC. In 
our case, all 4xxx and 5xxx addresses. I'm sure a more limited scheme could be 
utilized, but we connect every LPAR in every CEC to every other LPAR via CTC, 
so lots of addresses are utilized.

Esteemed Listers,

I am in the process of adding a new LPAR to my sysplex and need some 
documentation for CTC naming conventions.

Many moons ago, there existed a document with a suggested naming convention 
such that device addresses could be associated with a particular LPAR and the 
direction of data flow.
This would, in turn, enable simple specification of PATHIN/PATHOUT statements 
in SYS1.PARMLIB(COUPLExx).

After a couple of hours spent with various search engines, websites, etc. I am 
unable to locate this suggested convention.
I have found fragments of documentation that use the convention, but no 
expression of the convention itself.
Does anyone, by chance, still have a copy? If so, can you post a copy or a link?

A virtual beer to all responders, and thanks in advance,

Right. In my child days, we were so poor, we have:

1. Running water - you run outside to get water using your pail and your feet.
2. cold and hot water - cold in the winter, hot in the summer.
3. shools have a tree structure - you just sit under a tree.
4. good transport - donkey car, cycle or just walking.
5. excellent entertainment - you just play outside.
6. But food was at least good - no junk food like those fast take aways.
7. I wish I could remember the rest, but my memory is fading... ;-)

"Readily" and "relatively easy" will probably not apply here, so the answers 
are not likely and nope.

You could dummy up a function/functions and receive the PTFs against it/them, 
but that won't buy you much other than metadata.  Even in IBM, things are 
packaged differently, but I would expect the sysmods would be compacted.  To 
expand them, you would use GIMCPTS, and then you could figure out how to use 
the necessary utilities to install them--and pay attention to the order, of 
course.  Depending on the number of sysmods, that could really be a hag.

Which product?  I'm very curious.  More appealing alternatives might be to 
contact your ever-changing IBM rep, if you can figure out who it is, or a VAR.

Subject: Kind of lame SMP/E question

[External Email]

I have a client who is licensed for and has installed a particular IBM software 
product on z/OS. The product is out of marketing but still in service. They 
have all the actual product libraries but managed apparently to delete the 
SMP/E datasets some time ago. They now need to apply a set of PTFs but are of 
course unable to do so without the SMP/E datasets. They cannot re-order the 
product because it is out of marketing.

I am a self-confessed SMP/E ignoramus. Is there some way to readily create a 
minimal SMP/E environment that would be "good enough"? Is there a relatively 
easy way to apply PTFs outside of SMP/E? Yeah, I know the questions are kind of 
lame, but I am outside of my comfort zone here and trying to help someone solve 
a problem.

Thanks much,
Charles

Re: Co-posted: Rexx performance measures

2018-09-11 Thread Jackson, Rob
Hah, indeed it did.  I was surprised too.  I added in the redundant count in 
the first place simply because I assumed a simple loop might not cause even a 
hundredth of a second CPU usage.  I was astonished, even knowing REXX is 
inherently a pig, albeit a generally pretty pig (yeah, yeah, Python is pretty 
too).

We are on a baby machine, a 2965-Txx, so that accounts for some of it, but 
still, yes, REXX is indeed expensive.

Re: [External] Re: remove bad GDG entry from GDG base

2018-07-05 Thread Jackson, Rob
That's because if the original attempt was tape, there's definitely no NVR.

Sorry, when I mentioned IEHPROGM earlier, I was actually thinking of the CATLG 
command, as in CATLG DSNAME=dataset,VOL=3390=whocares (disk doesn't matter, 
because you just want an entry you can actually delete).  I thought about 
IEHPROGM, because it's still sort of "dumb," and just does what it's told, and 
I hoped it might just make the entry in the catalog.  If it does, the base 
already has it rolled in, and you can simply delete it with noscratch.  I'm not 
sure your IEHPROGM results so far indicate anything other than there is no 
complete catalog entry.

That's a shame about rename giving you a 040842CD, which says duplicate catalog 
entry exists.  It makes me think the IEHPROGM CATLG won't work either, despite 
being old school.  It depends upon which interfaces IEHPROGM does not respect 
(but which ISPF clearly does).

Re: trying to reload a pdse after it has been unloaded and ftp'd

2018-05-16 Thread Jackson, Rob
Also, you should consider using a FTP PUT as the second step of the 
dump-creating job, if the FTP server is running on your target system.  The FTP 
client does a good job of setting the SITE command appropriately for you.  Then 
you just have to worry about setting size on the target, if the defaults are 
not acceptable.

That looks like the DCB for a tersed dataset.  DSS would be creating RECFM=U 
and BLKSIZE=27998 on disk.

Try this instead:

LOCSITE VARrecfm LRECL=27998 RECFM=U BLKSIZE=27998

We DSS dump and FTP hundreds of PDSs and PDSEs every day (don't ask), both text 
and loadlibs.  From z/OS to z/OS you don't need to worry about tersing for 
portability.  You just need 'type e' and 'mode b' in your FTP control cards.

For this I have always used ADRDSSU and then Terse'd the results before doing a

ADRDSSU restore and it has worked.

Hope this helps

Subject: [EXTERNAL] trying to reload a pdse after it has been unloaded and ftp'd

I am trying to reload an unloaded pdse after it has been ftp'd to a target lpar.
there is a known problem with this using IEBCOPY UNLOAD/RELOAD described on 
IBMLINK and none of the work-around overrides to ftp work. TRSMAIN/TERSE does 
not support PDSE. So I switched over to ADRDSSU.

I dump a dataset and am able to restore it on the same lpar.
However, when i ftp the dumped dataset to the remote lpar, the restore fails 
because the input dataset is not valid for ADRDSSU (tried ftp with both BIN and 
EBCDIC default).

both datasets (remote and local) look the same to me when browsing them and 
have the same dcb info.
does anyone know how to restore an unloaded pdse that has been ftp'd?

thanks in advance for any info.
