To use MIMIX Monitor to perform switching, you need the following:

  • Two or more IBM® Power™ Systems, or partitions; one system must be designated as a backup system.

  • Communications facilities between the production system and a backup system. If you have more than one production system to switch to the backup, each production system must have communication facilities between it and the backup system. Additionally, when a switch occurs you will still need to maintain a communications channel that MIMIX can use that is not affected by the switch.

  • Assure MIMIX must be installed. Refer to the License Manager for IBM i Products for the system and software requirements for these products and details about where you need these products installed.

  • System definitions and transfer definitions configured for the replication environment. If MIMIX is not already configured, you can use the Assure MIMIX Administrator Referencebook to help you.

  • Configuration dependent equipment.

  • MIMIX Model Switch Framework also requires that a switch framework be configured. For more information, see Operating requirements.
