To use TCP/IP communications, the MIMIX TCP/IP server must be started each time the MIMIX subsystem (MIMIXSBS) is started. Because this can become a time consuming task that can be mistakenly forgotten, MIMIX supports automatically creating and managing autostart job entries for the TCP server with the MIMIXSBS subsystem. MIMIX does this when transfer definitions for TCP protocol specify *YES for the Manage autostart job entries (MNGAJE) parameter.

The autostart job entry uses a job description that contains the STRSVR command which will automatically start the Lakeview TCP server when the MIMIXSBS subsystem is started. The STRSVR command is defined in the Request data or command (RQSDTA) parameter of the job description.

When configuring a new installation, transfer definitions and MIMIX-added autostart job entries do not exist on other systems until after the first time the MIMIX managers are started. Therefore, during initial configuration you may need to manually start the TCP server on the other systems using the STRSVR command.

If you prefer, you can create and manage autostart job entries yourself. The transfer definition must specify MNGAJE(*NO) and you must have an autostart job entry on each system that can use the transfer definition.
