You need to configure MIMIX on each system that participates in a MIMIX installation. Do the following:

  1. By now, you should have completed the following tasks:

    • The checklist for installing MIMIX software in the License Manager for IBM i Products book

    • You should have also turned on product-level security and granted authority to user profiles to control access to the MIMIX products.

  2. At this time, you should review the information in Data that should not be replicated.

  3. Decide what replication choices are appropriate for your environment. Review the following topics:

  4. If it is not already active, start the MIMIXSBS subsystem using topic Starting the MIMIXSBS subsystem.

  5. Configure each system in the MIMIX installation, beginning with the management system. The chapter Configuration checklists identifies the primary options you have for configuring MIMIX.

  6. Once you complete the configuration process you choose, you may also need to do one or more of the following:
    • If you plan to use MIMIX Monitor in conjunction with MIMIX, you may need to write exit programs for monitoring activity and you may want to ensure that your monitor definitions are replicated. See the Assure MIMIX Operations book for more information.

    • Verify the configuration.

    • Verify any exit programs that are called by MIMIX.

    • Update any automation programs you use with MIMIX and verify their operation.

    • If you plan to use switching support, you or your Certified MIMIX Consultant may need to take additional action to set up and test switching. Customization of the procedures and steps for application groups may be appropriate and should be considered. In environments that do not use application groups, a default model switch framework must be configured and identified in MIMIX policies. For more information about switching and policies, see the Assure MIMIX Operations book.
