Use this procedure if you want to program the IP impersonation yourself. When you use this procedure, the switch definition you create will not include the information MIMIX Monitor requires to perform IP impersonation. If you want to use IP impersonation with a switch definition created in this way, your event program must include all of the necessary programming.

Do the following to create a switch definition where MIMIX Monitor does not perform switching:

  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 *NONE.

    3. Verify that the value of the Production system definition prompt is what you want. The default value *NONE indicates that MMIX Monitor will not verify the status of the production system.

    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, if the system controlling the switch operations is not the backup system, specify the name of a transfer definition that defines the communication between the production system and the backup system.

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