Upgrading SFTP COZ: from v2.4.1 to v3.1.2 Procedures

Post by barry.paulus » Thu Oct 15, 2015 12:07 pm

Currently we are using SFTP CO:z 2.4.1. in production and looking to install and
replace with the CO:Z 3.1.2 edition of the product.
I have gone thru the first preliminary install steps within the
installation document. I have loaded down and created
libraries on the z/os system......(tcpip.coz312.loadlib and
tcpip.coz312.sampjcl), in addition to the unix libraries such as
(/sftp/cozn/binnew and /sftp/cozn....which contain the new unix members.

I am sort of at a roadblock in the installation that I am not totally
familiar with the process.....When I completed the first 8 steps of the
install process, where do you go to proceed with setting up and actually testing the
new product. I don't want to at this stage to rename the 2.4.1 libraries
and replace with the new libraries, just want to test with the new
libraries on my test system now, then when complete replace the old libraries.

Do I proceed with the install of V3.1.2 by starting with the CO:Z Users
Guide....chapter one......please inform.
Im sure i will need to customize the new libraries to suit the current
installation......which ones should I look for......???

Thanks.....Barry Paulus 1-201-321-4086

I am not sure that I understand your question, but I hope that this helps:

Your PDS/E libraries (SAMPJCL, LOADLIB) and Unix install directory can be named anything you want. You can have as many versions installed at the same time as you want. The only caveat to this is that a given IBM Ported Tools SSHD server can only point to one version of the Co:Z SFTP server.
But this is not an issue if you have a separate sandbox LPAR.

I appreciate our response to my question, This is the first time that I am installing the COZ system on the mainframe.
I have successfully loaded down the COZ: V3.1.2. from website to my P/C and moved onto my mainframe system. Encountered NO problems

I am not to sure on how I should proceed further to be able to setup and test this new software. What are the functions....datasets that I need in place to proceed with my testing....Is there a document outlining what is required beyond this point to set up for testing...????

Please assist

Thanks

Barry
