This book is intended to provide planning information to be considered during the
incorporation of Data Facility Hierarchical Storage Manager (DFHSM) into your
present data processing environment.
This book contains information written primarily for data processing personnel who
are planning the initial installation of DFHSM on a system. These individuals
should understand the information presented in Data Facility Hierarchical Storage
Manager: Version 2 Release 5.0 General Information.
Data Facility Hierarchical Storage Manager: Version 2 Release 5.0 Planning Guide
provides no programming interfaces for customers.
Some terms that must also be understood are:
Planning is the task of making fundamental decisions about the
options a program offers. In this context it is deciding how to
use the functions that DFHSM offers to make your
environment more productive.
Installation is the task of preparing a program for productive
work. This may include installing DFHSM using the System
Modification Program Extended (SMP/E), initializing the
DFHSM program product, and applying maintenance to
DFHSM as necessary. It also includes defining DFHSM to
other supporting system products.
Customization is the process of selecting available functions,
and the parameters that control those functions, to perform
work towards the installation's objectives.
