A mainframe operating system is networking software infrastructure that allows a mainframe computer to run programs, connect linked machines, and process complex numerical and data-driven tasks. Modern mainframe design is generally defined by redundant internal engineering, extensive input-output facilities, strict backward compatibility with older software, high hardware and computational utilization rates and high stability and reliability. Well-known operating systems include IBM z/OS, z/VM, zTPF, z/VSE, OS/390, and their predecessors, along with MCP for Unisys ClearPath, and NonStop OS/Guardian on HP/Tandem, and questions regarding the IBM midrange operating system called IBM i, OS/400, and i5/OS.

Hi,
I am jumping around to different vendor site and would like to know if there is a master list of all end of life operating systems in a spreadsheet.

Thanks in advance.

Dear experts.
I am connecting via a ODBC connection to a IBM Mainframe Datacom server.
Now the problem is, that the Datacom server is not the most recent version. Updating unfortunately is not an option.
Although a fix: RO40776 exists
Apparently some MSAccess SQL Statistics command, when querying the MainFrame DB via ODBC crashes the Datacom server.
ANY Idea how I can disable those MSAccess SQL Statistic commands?
Many thanks for your help

Hello,

We have installed some Windows7 PCs, installed IBM Client Access V5R4 on them for display and printer emulation.  Our AS/400 is running V5R1M0.  We are printing to an HP Laserjet 2300D printer.  In the printer emulation, we have specified font 011-courier 10, and NO host print transform.  We are printing on regular 8 1/2" x 11" paper, and the user wants the print to be as large as possible.  The reports print landscape, and pretty large, but since moving to Windows 7 and Client Access V5R4, the print is very, very light, and the font may be just ever so slightly smaller.  The main problem is that it is so light, it looks like the printer is running out of toner, but it isn't.  I tried using a workstation customization file with this printer, specifying asciifnt=204 and fntwth=108 for cpicor  cpi=10, but that only created more problems, reports then print on legal paper, and the user has to press a button on the printer each time a report is sent to it.  Does anyone know how we can get our dark print back?

Please see attached an image of what my question is about. I have 4 physical drives 2 separate Arrays A&B.
Array A have Drive C: and D:
Array B have Drive B: and L:

Both RAID1 setup.

For me to do a hardware expansion, I will have to purchase additional disk drive, but we are budget tight. I want to use Windows software extension by shrinking drive D: so I can have some disk space to add to Drive C: without any system file corruption or Windows start acting funny. Can this be done without no issue as far as windows start failing after the expansion.

Thanks,
Haji

After multiple tries at starting an SBS 2011 installation with an Answer file, the vm network adapter stopped working and I now get a "network adapter not found" dialog box.

The strange thing is that it worked with no issues each time I re-installed SBS 2011 (5-10 times at least).

I have deleted the VM and rebuilt it to no avail so I'm thinking it's an issue on the host system but don't know enough about VMware to troubleshoot.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

NOTE: DB2 database on an IBM server

I have a table (Answers) that holds the results for a questionnaire.
table layout:
     RowID
     QuestionnaireID
     ClientID
     QuestionNumber
     Answer
     Commnets

I would like to be able to return the data with the answers in there own column's with the question numbers as the column header.
example:
     QuestionnaireID  ClientID  1  2        3          ...
     123                       0001        Y  Dog   Yellow ...
     124                       0002        N NULL Red      ...

there are about 80 questions in the questionnaire and not all will have answers so not all question numbers will be listed on the answer table in every case.

How does one spool a pcl file to an iSeries As400 server using the jt400 java sdk. I can spool a text file to an as400 outq ok and it prints ok.
a pcl file prints gibberish.

My program runs on a Windows 7 workstation.

Some working code snippets would help in java or .net would be very useful.

A customer has lost its QSECOFR, QSYSOPR, and DST passwords (sysadmin left). They are on V5R3. There is no other profile with *SECADM or *ALLOBJ authority (we are still looking). We know of no programs that will adopt *OWNER rights. We found the V5R3 DVDs but no backups.

Is there a way to recover or reset the QSECOFR password?

What is the difference between the old technology when we work on dos prompt and use chkdsk or I remember long time i think over 15 years ago I use scandisk to check my 1.2/1.44 or harddisk for bad sectors and increase the performance of my hard disk. What is new now a days to increase the performance of the hardisk. What methods new operating systems use for the disk performance?

Thanks

I am not understanding that. Can any one please describe it in a different way.  Thanks

Execution of the process will depend on the; Arrival time, the importance of the process, length of the process and most importantly the algorithm used by the CPU to allocate resources

Scheduling is the method by which processes, methods and threads are given the access to the resources in the system. The modern multitasking where two processes are to be executed at the same time makes scheduling a requirement in the current computing.
