The command consoles created by the Ironstream agent must be defined to CICS unless auto- install has been configured for EMCS consoles in CICS.

Enter the following commands in CICS to define consoles that Ironstream can use to issue commands for information gathering:
CEDA DEF TE(CNxx) GR(EVOGRP) TY(DFHCONS) CONSN(staticname)
CEDA DEF TE(CNyy) GR(EVOGRP) TY(DFHCONS) CONSN(EVRXCNzz)

where:

EVOGRP: A group name for Ironstream.

CNxx,CNyy: An available terminal name, for example CN10.

staticname: The console name of the extended console defined on Ironstream’s CMD parameter card (see “CMD Parameter Card” definition page 11).

zz: The two-character value of the &SYSCLONE. system symbol for this LPAR. The resulting “EVRXCNzz” console will be dynamically created as needed in Rexx programs.

Run the install transactions after defining the consoles.
CEDA INSTALL GR(EVOGRP) TE(CNxx)
CEDA INSTALL GR(EVOGRP) TE(CNyy)

See also the notes on defining Ironstream extended consoles to RACF in Appendix A.

If CICS Transaction and Program discovery is being performed, the Ironstream discovery agent needs access to two modules in the CICS SDFHLOAD dataset (DFHCSDUP and DFHEITCU). There are three options to providing the agent access to these modules.

  1. Add the SDFHLOAD dataset to the Ironstream Discovery agent STEPLIB DD statement. If this option is chosen then the SDFHLOAD dataset must be APF authorized.

  2. Add SDFHLOAD to the LNKLST.

  3. Copy members DFHCSDUP and DFHEITCU from the SDFHLOAD dataset to the EV390.V74.LOAD dataset. This option should only be used if options 1 or 2 are not possible.

If you do not wish to use the CICS default user, you can assign a user to the terminal that is defined for the agent console. When a terminal is defined as a console to CICS for Micro Focus there is a field that can be used to specify a userid for security. The field is called PRESET SECURITY. This is where you can specify the userid attribute on the TERMINAL resource definition.
