Description of problem:
iucv requires a host value to be specified. for zVM it is iucv=TCPIP.
There is no mention of this in README-en. There doesn't seem to be a way to pass
this information via the parm file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.perform a standard install for an iucv system
2.specify the netwrok information in the parm file.
also true for s390x.
prompt is issued for missing parameter during pahse one install
I believe its "IUCV=TCPIP" but haven't ever done anything with IUCV -- Karsten?
That's correct, the parameter is IUCV=TCPIP for VM or IUCV=$TCPIP for VIF.
(I don't know if we support Virtual Image Facility and if this is something we can set up
and test on our z900)
If not, we can hardcode IUCV=TCPIP in the linuxrc and don't need a description in the
Bill, any comments about VIF ?
Ok, I've read some docs and IUCV= can't be hardcoded to TCPIP. Although connecting to the
TCPIP service machine is the most common usage, connections to other Linux guests are
possible as well.
Our installer already knows about the IUCV= parameter, it just needs to be documented.
(Mail sent to documentation team)
Verified that IUCV=iucv=TCPIP works. Doc needs to be updated. I will close this
but will make sure doc gets updated prior to the end of the test period.
