Configuring the Runtime Service
To configure the CICS run-time service, you must define either a TCP/IP or SNA connection to the host (referred to as a "System"), and then map Task IDs to each System (referred to as "Mappings"), which enables tasks to be run.
|To configure a run-time server
- In the MCS left pane, point to Products and then click Services Builder for CICS.
- Under Services Builder for CICS, click next to the Runtime Servers tree, and then expand a run-time server.
- Click Configure.
The Configuration window appears in the right pane with the Systems page displayed.
- Click New in the host connection pane for which you want add a new system connection configuration.
||Before you can create a new system, you may be prompted to use a default configuration file. For additional information about default configuration files and Runtime Service for CICS, refer to Server Configuration Files.
Depending upon your selection, the New TCP/IP System or the New SNA Gateway dialog box appears.
- Complete the system options, and then click OK. For detailed information about the options on these pages, click Help.
- From the Mappings page, assign Task IDs to Systems as desired.
Task IDs are specified at design-time. Each configuration includes one or more host connections, and each host connection must have one or more tasks assigned to it.
- Click Save Configuration and then re-start the run-time computer.
||Configurations are saved as either remote or local:
