All systems run on a parallel sysplex, TCP/IP is set-up to be located in the Sysplex Distributor and supports DVIPAs. The requirements are that each needs to be installed as standalone system and sized according to the usage. IBM has readied the code on their FTP site under order number DB2112017. Since you have your SMP/E environment you should be able to get the code to the mainframe and install it.
1. Please describe the process of getting DB2 code to your mainframe, what are the steps, what are significant issues which will arise, the time frame until you can start with the first DB2 subsystem, and what are the important milestones?
2. After your DB2 Code installation is done what are the next steps in proceeding with the DB2 installation?
