In an Intra environment, MIMIX communicates between two product libraries on the same system instead of between a local system and a remote system. The libraries need to have the same name except the product library (PRDLIB) for the Intra system definition (SYSDFN) must be manually specified, and must have an 'I' appended to the end of the library name. For example, a library named ABC would need to be named ABCI, ABCII, ABCIII, etc... in order to be valid for an Intra configuration.

Important! We recommend that these steps be performed by MIMIX Services personnel. Also, the system name for Intra must be ‘INTRAnnn’ where ‘INTRA’ is required for the first part of the system name and the second part of the name, nnn, can be up to 3 valid system definition characters.

In this example, the MIMIX library is the management system and the MIMIXI library is the network system. If you manually configure the communications necessary for Intra, consider the MIMIX library as the local system and the MIMIXI library as the remote system. You may already have a management system defined and need to add an Intra network system. All the configuration should be done in the MIMIX library on the management system.

Note: If you have multiple network systems, you need to configure your transfer definitions to have the same name with system1 and system2 being different. For more information, see Multiple network system considerations.

To add an entry in the host name table, use the command Configure TCP/IP (CFGTCP) command to access the Configure TCP/IP menu.

Select option 10 (Work with TCP/IP Host Table Entries) from the menu. From the Work with TCP/IP Host Table display, type a 2 (Change) next to the LOOPBACK entry and add 'INTRA' to that entry.

For this example, the host name of the management system is Source and the host name for the network or target system is Intra.

  1. Create the system definitions for the product libraries used for Intra as follows:

    1. For the MIMIX library (local system) enter the following command:

      MIMIX/CRTSYSDFN SYSDFN(source) TYPE(*MGT) TEXT(‘management system’)
      Note: You may have already configured this system.
    2. For the MIMIXI library (remote system), use the following command:

      MIMIX/CRTSYSDFN SYSDFN(INTRA) TYPE(*NET) TEXT(‘network system’) PRDLIB(MIMIXI)
  2. Create the transfer definition between the two product libraries with the following command. Note that the values for PORT1 and PORT2 must be unique.

    MIMIX/CRTTFRDFN TFRDFN(PRIMARY SOURCE INTRA) HOST1(SOURCE) HOST2(INTRA) PORT1(55501) PORT2(55502) MNGAJE(*YES)
  3. Start the server for the management system (source) by entering the following command:

    MIMIX/STRSVR HOST(SOURCE) PORT(55501)
  4. Start the server for the network system (Intra) by entering the following command:

    MIMIXI/STRSVR HOST(INTRA) PORT(55502)
  5. Start the system managers from the management system by entering the following command:
    MIMIX/STRMMXMGR SYSDFN(*ALL)

     Start the remaining managers normally.

Note: You will still need to configure journal definitions and data group definitions on the management system.
