ibm360-370:vm370_first_start

VM/370 Initial Startup

At this point - the system files, virtual disks and other files have been properly located, but then environment will need to be prepared for next steps.

File sixpack.conf will need to be reviewed

Adjust Config File

As delivered, the configuration file will need to be adjusted for subsequent validation/test activities.

  • Beneath the commented httpport line, add the timezone offset for your local system
    #HTTPPORT       8081
    TZOFFSET       -0800
  • Locate these statements
    # These two packs are for CMS/DOS.  I have not tested CMS/DOS!
    # Un-comment them if you use them.
    #06a0    3350    disks/sysres.3350.cckd ro sf=disks/shadows/sysres_
    #07a0    3350    disks/mcat01.3350.cckd ro sf=disks/shadows/mcat01_
  • Uncomment them so they look like this:
    06a0    3350    disks/sysres.3350.cckd ro sf=disks/shadows/sysres_
    07a0    3350    disks/mcat01.3350.cckd ro sf=disks/shadows/mcat01_

Adjust Startup File

As delivered, the startup file sixpack.cmd is very rudimentary:

sixpack.cmd
: This command file launches the VM/370 SixPack.
: Ensure that the Hercules executable (hercules.exe) is in your path.
 
start hercules -f sixpack.conf > Log.txt
 
: Now start the 3270 emulator.
: Feel free to replace this with your preferred terminal emulation program.
cd WC3270
start wc3270.exe -keymap 3270 -title "VM Login" Model5.wc3270
cd ..

This will need to be replaced later - but for now, we assume that a properly installed hercules.exe file is available in your path and you may now launch sixpack.cmd.

Initial Logon

Once launched, two screens will appear

VM3270 Terminal Window

Although the SixPack default window (as distributed) is a Model 5, for purposes of demonstration, we are showing a smaller window.
