The Ironstream agent runs as a started task on the IBM Z system. Task startup example follows:
("VP390" being the started task name defined by the JCL procedure).
If the agent does not initialize after entering this command, then it is likely that not all installation/configuration steps have been completed. For the agent to start correctly, the following configuration file member must exist in the Ironstream parmlib dataset defined as input to the SYSIN DD statement:
The DDMPARM member contains initialization statements/parameters for the started task.
Error messages and initialization messages are issued during startup and can be found in the VP390 joblog and the syslog.
After the agent has been started the status of all subtasks can be displayed by issuing the following command:
F VP390,SHOW TASK
Check the command output to see that all required subtasks and all optional subtasks for your configuration are active. Also, note the status and compare to the expected status shown in the following list of subtasks.
