Initial Setup

The Initial Setup steps ensure that the required products and components are installed. Some basic configuration needs to be done before you configure Automated Sign-on for Mainframe.

The installation requirements are summarized in System Requirements and Prerequisites.

In brief, the administrators will

  1. Install or upgrade Management and Security Server
  2. Activate the Automated Sign-On for Mainframe Add-On
  3. Configure DCAS and RACF on z/OS
  4. Configure Authentication & Authorization
  5. Establish trust between the MSS Administrative Server and the DCAS server
  6. Enable your emulator for automated sign-on
  7. Create an IBM 3270 session with an automated sign-on macro

See the Configuration Workflow for an overview of the tasks and where they need to be done.

Use the Administrators' Task List to distribute the configuration tasks to the appropriate administrator.
