The DASD, as planned in Figure 4-4 on page 39. In this case, we defined 14 numbers for model 3390-9 DASD. Figure 4-6 on page 41 shows the address of the common volume for each member, which, in this case, is the same address for all members. Figure 4-6 on page 41 also shows the CTC connections for the entire cluster. At installation time, we can only define two connections between each member. We can add more connections after the installation is complete, if required. The last window from the INSTPLAN EXEC command shows that the DASD will be formatted and the connections will be defined based on the data input. 4.3.2 INSTALL command Next, we executed the INSTALL command to perform the following actions: Format the DASD Copy the content of the DVD to its respective minidisks Install the z/VM system Start each member of the SSI cluster Run PUT2PROD on each member of the SSI cluster The successful completion of the INSTALL command is indicated by the message that is shown in Figure 4-10. Figure 4-10 Completion of the INSTALL command 4.3.3 INSTSCID command We ran the INSTSCID command to set up the SYSTEM CONFIG files to include the correct system identifier statement for each member. 4.3.4 Configuring the system After the last command, we started all four z/VM images in their respective LPARs. Figure 4-11 on page 48 shows that the cluster is ready (SSI Mode: Stable) and all members are running (State: Joined). Chapter 4.
