    QUESTION:

    How do I connect CATALOG MANAGER to MainView for DB2?


    ANSWER:

    Use the following procedure to enable the hyperlinks from MainView for DB2 views to CATALOG MANAGER to display information from DB2 catalog tables. MainView configuration supports these steps.

    To define the connection to CATALOG MANAGER for DB2

      
       
    1. Choose one of the following options:          

      You must provide the following information from your CATALOG MANAGER installation:

           

      You can only access DB2s that are in a different LPAR from a User Address Space (UAS) if you have defined DDF connections between your DB2s, and have enabled DDF usage in CATALOG MANAGER.

           
      • If you ran MainView configuration

        This step is done automatically. Skip to Step 2.

      •    
      • If you did not run MainView configuration

        Take the following steps:

      •   
      1.    
      2. Manually allocate a hlq.SBBCLIB, and concatenate it to the BBCLIB DD allocation.
      3.    
      4. Move the customized DMRACT CLIST into hlq.SBBCLIB.
      5.   
           
      • HLQ(cathlq)– cathlq identifies the high-level qualifier of the CATALOG MANAGER data sets.

      •    
      • MVHLQ– the high-level qualifier of the MainView for DB2 data sets.

      •    
      • DOPTS(ACTDOPD1)–ACTDOPD1 is the default options module.

      •   
       
    2. To activate the connection to CATALOG MANAGER, edit member DMRACTR in UBBPARM (original source in member DMRACTR in BBPARM). Specify the CATALOG MANAGER version number in the first four characters of the line. (For example, version number 12.1 is specified as 1210.)
