z/OS installation overview
Since the code modules on z/OS require multiple components in both the mainframe and distributed environment, the installation process is more complex compared to standard OneAgent installation. However, with a bit of planning and coordination with the varied architecture groups, the installation of the code modules can go smoothly.
Efficient code module installation on z/OS is typically a team effort involving the following:
- Mainframe Systems Programmer—Downloads and installs the Dynatrace product datasets for z/OS.
- Mainframe Security Administrator—Sets up security for the zDC subsystem.
- Mainframe Systems Programmer—Installs the code modules in each of the regions to be monitored.
- Distributed Systems Administrator—Installs the zRemote module and Dynatrace ActiveGate.
Depending on your team, a single individual may be able to administer more than one of the required tasks.
