Processors and real storage:Content Manager for z/OS V8.4.3 operates on any processor that supports z/Architecture, including zSeries z800, z890, z900, z990, IBM System z9, or a comparable processor. The processor must have enough real storage to satisfy the combined requirements of:

  • DB2 Universal Database Server
  • HTTP server
  • z/OS
  • Other customer-required applications

DASD: The program directories provide the direct access storage device (DASD) requirements to install Content Manager for z/OS V8.4.3. The actual DASD requirement that is needed for IBM Content Manager to maintain customer data in DB2 databases depends on each customer's specific application requirement.
