Do the following to create a switch definition that uses IP impersonation:

  1. Use the procedure in Accessing the Work with Switch Definitions display to access the Work with Switch Definitions display.

  2. From the Work with Switch Definitions display, type a 1 (Create) in the Opt column next to the blank line at the top of the list and press Enter.

  3. The Create Switch Definition (CRTSWTDFN) display appears. Do the following:

    1. Specify a unique name for the definition at the Switch prompt. Once the switch definition is created, its name cannot be changed.

    2. At the Switch type prompt, specify *TCP.

    3. At the Production system definition prompt, specify the name of a system definition defined to MIMIX that is the production system during normal operations. To see a list of system definitions available in this product library, press F4 (Prompt).

    4. At the Backup system definition prompt, specify the name of a system definition defined to MIMIX that is the backup system during normal operations. The default value *LOCAL uses the system definition for this system. To see a list of system definitions available in this product library, press F4 (Prompt).

    5. At the Transfer definition prompt, specify the name of the transfer definition that defines the communication method between the production system and the backup system. You should specify the controlling system if it is not the backup system. To see a list of system definitions available in this product library, press F4 (Prompt).

    6. At the Event program prompt, specify the name and library of the user program that is called by the group monitor when the predefined monitor conditions and user-defined conditions are met. An event program is used to handle the triggered event.

      Note: If you want to specify a condition program, you must change the group monitor that is automatically created when the switch definition is created.
  4. Press Enter. Additional parameters appear on the display.

  5. At the Impersonation alias or address prompt, specify the name of a host alias or an address to be used for IP impersonation.

  6. At the Logon message prompt, you can accept the default message or provide the text that you want to appear on devices defined to the switch when the Start Switch Screen (STRSWTSCN) command is used during a switching operation.

  7. At the Description prompt, provide a text description of the switch definition and press Enter.
