Requirements - Operate z/OS Data Sets and UNIX FilesΒΆ

To use above modules and roles, it needs to ensure z/OS data set and file REST services is configured in z/OSMF. Please refer to here for a quick approach to set up z/OSMF dependencies.

Besides the Overall Requirements, the following nodes require specific versions of software:

Control Node:

Managed Node:

  • z/OS Management Facility: V02.03.00 or later

    The z/OS data set and USS file managed by each z/OS managed node can be accessed by at least one z/OSMF server. Typically, this could be done by setup one z/OSMF in the same sysplex.


    • To use the encoding function (by variable dataset_encoding or file_encoding) for modules: zmf_dataset_fetch, zmf_file_fetch, zmf_dataset_copy and zmf_file_copy, it also requires: z/OSMF APAR PH15263 (PTF UI65882 for V2R3, PTF UI65883 for V2R4)

    • To use the create-like function (by variable dataset_create_like) for modules: zmf_dataset_copy and zmf_dataset, it also requires: z/OSMF APAR PH22030 (PTF UI68974 for V2R3, PTF UI68975 for V2R4)
