- When using FICON to define a CP whose device numbers are 310 and 311, supply the following information:
Add Channel panel Channel path ID: 3 Number of CHPIDs: 1 Channel path type: channel_path_type (first) Add Control Unit panel Control unit number: 310 Control unit type: DUMMY (second) Add Control Unit panel Channel path IDs: 3 Unit address: 10 Number of units: 2 Protocol: protocol_type I/O concurrency level: 2 Add Device panel Device number: 310 Number of devices: 2 Device type: DUMMY Connected to CUs: 310
Where variable... is... channel_path_type
“BL” if a Bus and Tag channel is used.
“CVC” if the Block Multiplexer device is connected to an ESCON channel through the use of an ESCON converter, such as an IBM 9034.
“S” for all servers with the channel interface set for data streaming at 3 MB per second.
“S4” for all servers with the channel interface set for data streaming at 4.5 MB per second.
