|Setting Up an IOM Bridge Server|
The SAS Integration Technologies Administrator provides a wizard to guide you through the process of creating LDAP-based metadata for an IOM Bridge server and spawner. (Alternatively, you can create this metadata using the regular IT Administrator interface.) For general information about IT Administrator, refer to Using the Integration Technologies (IT) Administrator.
Before beginning this procedure, be sure that you have:
Installed an LDAP directory server and configured it for use with SAS software. For detailed instructions, refer to Setting up an LDAP Directory Server.
Installed the Integration Technologies (IT) Administrator application. For details, see IT Administrator Installation and Startup.
Defined a SAS login object that the object server can use to authenticate users. For details, see Using IT Administrator to Define a SAS Login.
Note: For Release 8.2, do not use the Multi-User Process ID Login attribute which appears in the Comnnections tab of the IT Administrator interface.
To define an IOM Bridge server object and spawner object using the wizard:
Start IT Administrator.
Select the SAS Configuration button in the Manager Bar.
Click the Wizard button (). The welcome screen for the wizard appears.
On each screen of the wizard, follow the instructions given; then select the Next button to move to the next screen. The Next button remains grayed out until you enter the required information. If you need to change information you have already entered, select the Back button. Select the Help button on any screen of the Wizard to receive instructions for the screen currently displayed. Select the Cancel button to exit the wizard at any time; if you select Cancel, no server object or spawner object will be created.
Each wizard screen is described below. For detailed information about a field, click on the corresponding attribute name, which is shown in parentheses. The appropriate definition on the sasServer Attributes List or sasSpawner Attributes List will be displayed. You can then use your browser's Back button to return to this page. The wizard screens are as follows:
Select a Logical Grouping. On this screen, select a defined logical name (sasLogicalName) from the list. If you want to create a new logical name, select the Create button; the wizard will help you create a new sasLogicalNameInfo object. For more information about logical names, refer to Assigning Logical Names.
Specify a Protocol. On this screen, select the IOM Bridge protocol (sasProtocol).
Specify IOM Bridge Connection Information. On this screen, specify a fully-qualified host name (sasMachineDNSName). Also enter a service (sasService) and/or a port number (sasPort). The port number is required if the server will have Java clients.
Specify the IOM Bridge Server Type. On this screen, select the type of server platform: either OS/390 or Other.
Set the Command for this Server. Enter the command (sasCommand) used to start the object server. Include the path relative to the directory in which the spawner will be started. This screen appears only if the server is a machine other than an OS/390.
Specify the OS/390 Command Information. Enter the OS/390 Partner Logical Unit Name (sasPluName) and the OS/390 Transaction Program Name (sasTpName). This screen appears only if the server is an OS/390 machine.
Done. On this screen, select the Advanced button if you want to add support for encryption. (Multi-user logins should not be used). Otherwise, select Next to skip to the Configure a New Spawner window. If you select Cancel, the server object will not be created.
Specify IOM Bridge Server Security Settings. On this screen, specify client encryption algorithms and server (sasNetEncrAlg) encryption algorithms. Also make a selection to indicate what to encrypt (sasRequiredEncryptionLevel).
Configure a New Spawner. On this screen, select the Next button to begin configuring the spawner. If you select Cancel, the server object will not be created.
New Spawner. This screen displays the domain, host name, and logical name information that are associated with the new server you have just configured. Review this information and, if necessary, select the Back button to make needed corrections. If the information is correct, select the Next button to proceed. If you select Cancel, the server and spawner object will not be created.
Modify Existing Spawner. This screen displays a list of existing spawner definitions that contain the same domain, host name, and logical name as the new server. If you want to use an existing spawner, select the spawner's name and the Next button; the wizard will skip to the Done screen, where you can finish defining the new server. If you want to create a new spawner definition using the displayed domain, host name, and logical name, select the Create button.
Specify the Operator Information. On this screen, enter the service (sasOperatorService) and/or port (sasOperatorPort) and the password (sasOperatorPassword) to allow a user to connect to the new spawner for administration purposes.
Specify the Encryption Information. On this screen, specify the path for the encryption modules (sasEncryptionModulesPath), select the key length (sasNetEncrKey), and select the checkbox if you want to use MAC encryption (sasNetMac).
Done. On this screen, select the Advanced button if your configuration will include dependent spawners, if you want to add UID support, or if you want to configure logging. Otherwise, select Next to skip to the Done screen, where you can finish defining the new server and spawner. If you select Cancel, the server and spawner definitions will not be created.
Specify the Master Information. If your server configuration will include dependent spawners, enter the service (sasMasterService) and port (sasMasterPort) which dependent spawners will use to connect to this spawner.
Specify the UUID Information. If you are setting up the spawner for UUID generation, specify the service (sasUUIDService), port (sasUUIDPort), and node (sasUUIDNode) to allow SAS to connect to the spawner and obtain UUID information. For more information about UUID generation, see Configuring a UUID Generator.
Specify the OS/390 Logical Unit Name. Enter the OS/390 spawner's logical name (sasLUName). This screen appears only if the server is an OS/390 machine.
Done. On this screen:
When you complete all of the steps in the above procedure, your LDAP directory will contain fully defined sasServer, sasSpawner, and sasLogicalNameInfo objects. You can now start the spawner and begin using the server. For details, see Invoking/Starting the Spawner.
