Detailed System Requirements for IBM® InfoSphere® Optim™ Solution for z/OS® 7.2

Detailed system requirements


This document provides information about prerequisites for IBM InfoSphere Optim Solution for z/OS and its features and components.


General Information

  • DFSORT is used in functions such as ARCHIVE INDEX creation. In order for DFSORT to process large amounts of data, APAR PM77027 / PTF UK83743 is required.

  • A minimum TSO region size of 32M is recommended. If a lower region size is used, processing large numbers of objects may limit product functions and cause "out of storage" conditions.
  • These default LE processing options are recommended:
    HEAP(...,ANYWHERE,...) and ANYHEAP(...,ANYWHERE,...).

    Using HEAP/ANYHEAP(...,BELOW,...) may limit product functions and cause "out of storage" conditions.
  • During installation Optim attempts to obtain the DB2 release value of the target DB2 subsystem through the DSNREXX interface. Therefore the DSNREXX plan must be bound and accessible by the Optim installer in the target DB2 subsystem. Also, the DSNREXX load module must be made available through the TSO logon procedure (STEPLIB or ISPLLIB), the system link list, or the link pack area. If the installer fails to obtain the DB2 release information using DSNREXX, it will attempt to load DSNHDECP to obtain the release value.

Database and Platform Considerations
Support Level
DB2 for z/OS 9.1 Supported
DB2 for z/OS 10.1 Supported
DB2 for z/OS 11.1 Supported
DB2 for z/OS 12.1 Tolerated
IMS 11 Supported
IMS 12 Supported
IMS 13 Supported
IMS 14 Supported
z/OS 1.12 Supported
z/OS 1.13 Supported
z/OS 2.1 Supported

IBM InfoSphere Optim Solution for z/OS 7.2 is packaged with IBM Optim 9.1. Use the following link to see Detailed System Requirements for the Optim 9.1 solutions and components:

The required Optim 7.2 support level for DB2 for z/OS 12.1 toleration is: APAR PM92220, PTF UK96410.

DB2 for z/OS 9.1 and 10.1 are out of support. Therefore, support of these being used with Optim 7.2 will be limited.
