Install the Data Set Libraries

This procedure describes how to install the data set libraries. After allocating PDS and SEQ files and the sequential file for FTP, transfer the Data Express sequential data sets to the mainframe so they can be used to populate the product installation PDS libraries. Once completed, you can then load Data Express.
To help you transfer the sequential data sets, we provide both FTP and Personal Communications (PC3270) assistance in the form of the following files. All reside in your installation directory's \**\HostSide\Installation Procedure subdirectory:
  • kbd.srl - A PC3270 transfer file list
  • ftpput.bat - A batch file that executes the ftpput.txt script
  • ftpput.txt - An FTP script that copies the sequential data sets to the mainframe

Before using the provided FTP script or PC3270 transfer file list to transfer the files, you must customize them to include the correct values. See Customization Reference for specific customization details.
