Precisely recommends that you run the Installation Verification Program (IVP) to ensure GeoTAX and the data files installed correctly. The IVP runs a GeoTAX batch job using sample input data and displays the results.

On Windows:

  1. Click Run GeoTAX Job in the GeoTAX program group window. A GeoTAX pop-up window appears.

  2. Enter sample as the name of the job to be run. Click OK. The job will take a few minutes to run.

  3. When the job completes, you receive notification via a dialog box. Click Yes to review the output for errors.

  4. To ensure that output files were produced, check the data directory where you installed GeoTAX. To view the results of the sample job, view the SAMPLE.RPT file.

If the job ran successfully, the report will show the output counts.

If the IVP job failed or did not run to completion, errors will be noted in the parameter record listing in the SAMPLE.RPT file; in this case, contact Precisely Technical Support at support.precisely.com for assistance.

On UNIX/Linux:

  1. Navigate to the /bin directory.

  2. Source the setup file. For example, enter:

    . ./setup
  3. Source the sample file.

  4. Execute rungtx.

  5. To view the results of the sample job, view the SAMPLE.RPT file.

If the job ran successfully, the report will show the output counts.

If the IVP job failed o

r did not run to completion, errors will be noted in the parameter record listing in the

SAMPLE.RPT file; in this case, contact Precisely Technical Support at

for assistance.

On z/OS:

Run the IVPFILE JCL member to ensure that the batch load modules function properly. The IVP job executes the required programs and files. Uncomment file DD names and change parameters to exercise features you will be using so they can be verified up front. Be sure to add the LE run time library reference to your steplib concatenation.

IVPFILE is a sample installation verification job you can use to confirm the installation was successful.

To edit IVPFILE:

  1. Edit the member IVPFILE, replacing the lower-case variable names with your site-specific names.

  2. Submit the IVPFILE JCL for processing.

  3. Once the IVP job runs, go to your SDSF (Systems Display and Search Facility) or IOF, or use the display tool of choice for viewing reports, logs, system messages, etc.

  4. Select the job id for the IVPFILE job that you just ran.

This procedure should complete with a return code of zero (RC=0). In addition to several other files, each job produces a report and an execution log for each execution of the GeoTAX product. Items that may be of interest are the PRNTPRT Report and PRNTXLG Execution Log created for every driver program.
