Introduction




z/OS is an operating system that runs on IBM Z hardware, which is designed for high performance, reliability, security, and scalability. z/OS supports a wide range of applications, from traditional mainframe workloads to modern cloud-native services. z/OS also provides a rich set of middleware products that enable developers and testers to create, deploy, and manage applications on IBM Z.


However, accessing and maintaining a real IBM Z system can be costly and complex, especially for independent software vendors (ISVs) who want to develop and test their products on z/OS. That's where ADCD comes in.


ADCD stands for Application Developer Controlled Distribution, which is a customized bundle of z/OS and related products that provides a pre-configured z/OS environment for developers and testers who want to work with IBM z Systems software products. ADCD is not an IBM program product and is not supported as a product, but rather as a way to quickly implement a z/OS system in order to concentrate on application development.


ADCD is built on a twice per year schedule, typically coinciding with the release of new versions of z/OS. The latest version of ADCD is z/OS ADCD 2.1, which was released in November 2020. However, some developers and testers might still prefer to use an older version of ADCD, such as z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13, which was released in July 2013.


z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 is based on z/OS V1R13, which was announced in July 2010 and became generally available in September 2010. Some of the features of Continuing the article: z/OS V1R13 include: - Enhanced support for zEnterprise hybrid computing - Improved scalability and performance for large-scale workloads - Increased security and compliance capabilities - Simplified installation and migration processes - Extended support for modern development tools and languages If you want to learn more about z/OS V1R13 features, you can refer to the z/OS V1R13 Elements and Features PDF Downloads . Now that you have a basic understanding of what z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 is, let's see how you can request and install it on your z Systems Development and Test Environment (zD&T). How to request and install z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13




Before you can use z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13, you need to meet some prerequisites and follow some steps to request and install it.


Prerequisites

You can contact s390net@us.ibm.com to verify and update your contracts and agreements. - A z Systems Development and Test Environment (zD&T) system that meets the minimum hardware and software requirements. You can check the requirements here. - An activated license key file that entitles you to run z Systems Development and Test Environment and install z/OS ADCD. You can obtain the license key file from IBM Passport Advantage or from a product license server or a license manager. - A sufficient amount of disk space to store the downloaded or received files. The total size of z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 is about 40 GB.


Requesting z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13




Once you have met the prerequisites, you can request z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 from IBM Dallas by sending an email to s390net@us.ibm.com with "ADCD 1.13 July 2013 Request" in the subject line. You can choose between two delivery methods: electronic download or DVDs.


If you choose electronic download, you need to provide the following information in your email: - Company name - zPDT Serial Number After your request is verified and approved, you will receive a user ID and download instructions from IBM Dallas. You can then access the download site and download the components that you need. The components are in Linux gzip format, which can be extracted using the gunzip command.


If you choose DVDs, you need to provide the following information in your email: - Company name - zPDT Serial Number - Ship to address - Ship to contact - Telephone Number - E-Mail Address After your request is verified and approved, the ADCD package will be shipped out within 10 business days. You will also receive a receipt-verification note from IBM Dallas, which you need to reply to confirm that you have received the package.


Installing z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13




After you have downloaded or received z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13, you can proceed to install it on your z Systems Development and Test Environment system. The installation process consists of two main steps: installing the system resident volumes and installing the optional middleware products.


To install the system resident volumes, you need to use the Z1091_ADCD_install command, which requires access to an activated license key file. The command syntax is as follows:


Z1091_ADCD_install [-d <directory>] [-k <keyfile>] [-s <server>] [-u <userid>] [-p <password>] [-l <port>] [-n <name>] [-v]


The command options are: - -d <directory>: Specifies the directory where the system resident volumes are located. The default is /usr/lpp/z1091/adcd. - -k <keyfile>: Specifies the path of the activated license key file on a locally attached USB hardware device. - -s <server>: Specifies the IP address or host name of the product license server or license manager. - -u <userid>: Specifies the user ID for accessing the product license server or license manager. - -p <password>: Specifies the password for accessing the product license server or license manager. - Continuing the article: - -l <port>: Specifies the port number for accessing the product license server or license manager. The default is 27000. - -n <name>: Specifies the name of the license key file on the product license server or license manager. - -v: Specifies verbose mode, which displays detailed messages during the installation. The Z1091_ADCD_install command will create a z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 configuration file and a set of virtual disks that contain the system resident volumes. The command will also update the z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 IPL statements in the zD&T configuration file. You can then start the z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 system using the z1091 command.


To install the optional middleware products, you need to use the Z1091_ADCD_middleware_install command, which also requires access to an activated license key file. The command syntax is as follows:


Z1091_ADCD_middleware_install [-d <directory>] [-k <keyfile>] [-s <server>] [-u <userid>] [-p <password>] [-l <port>] [-n <name>] [-v]


The command options are the same as the Z1091_ADCD_install command, except for -d <directory>, which specifies the directory where the optional middleware products are located. The default is /usr/lpp/z1091/adcd/middleware.


The Z1091_ADCD_middleware_install command will create a set of virtual disks that contain the optional middleware products and update the z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 IPL statements in the zD&T configuration file. You can then start the z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 system with the optional middleware products using the z1091 command.


How to use z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13




After you have installed z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13, you can use it to access and work with a variety of IBM z Systems software products, such as CICS, DB2, IMS, MQSeries, WebSphere, and more. You can also apply maintenance service levels and fixes for reported problems.


Accessing z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13




To access z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13, you need to start the system using the z1091 command and specify the configuration file that was created by the Z1091_ADCD_install command or the Z1091_ADCD_middleware_install command. For example:


z1091 /usr/lpp/z1091/adcd/zos113.cfg


This will start z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 with the system resident volumes and the optional middleware products.


Once the system is started, you can log on to z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13 using a terminal emulator program, such as x3270 or PuTTY, and connect to port 3270 on your z Systems Development and Test Environment system. You can use any of the pre-defined user IDs and passwords that are listed in the README file that comes with z/OS ADCD 1.13 - 13.
