To use the PC communication interface, install the following modules:
- HSISXMS in the Fixed Link Pack Area (FLPA)
- TDPNSPCI in a Pageable Link Pack Area (PLPA) or MPLA)
- The HSISXMS module must be in Page Fixed memory.
- The HSIOSSI and TRDTMAS modules are not used for the PC Communication Interface, so they do not need to be installed in any z/OS Link Pack Area (LPA).
To page fix the HSISXMS load module, add its name to SYS1.PARMLIB(IEAFIXxx). For more details, see the appropriate version of the IBM publication z/OS MVS Initialization and Tuning Reference.
To define the HSISXMS module and the TDPNSPCI interface, add the following TDP command as an entry in the TDPPARM data set:
INITIAL IACMODE PC
The TDPPARM data set is described elsewhere. For details on TDP INITIAL commands, refer to Teradata® Director Program Reference, B035-2416.
During SMP APPLY processing, the HSISXMS and TDPNSPCI modules are installed into dbcpfx.LPALIB. The PC modules do not take effect until the LPA is refreshed through a CLPA or MLPA IPL.
