Upload the software

z/Server is available as an XMIT file. Upload the file install.xmit in binary format to a sequential dataset with LRECL 80 and BLKSIZE 3120. It is easiest to preallocate the dataset using the batch job below.

Optionally add a valid VOLSER and/or change the UNIT parameter. hlq will be the high level qualifier you have chosen for the installation. Add a job card before submitting, if necessary.

//            DSORG=PS,RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=3120, 
//*           VOL=SER=vvvvvv,UNIT=SYSALLDA, 
//            SPACE=(CYL,(30,5))

You can use FTP to upload the file. In the sample dialog below, commands and other information entered by the user are shown bold:
