Installation libraries

Before you can install your products, you must unload the installation libraries from tape or from the Electronic Software Distribution (ESD) site. The JCL that is required for unloading or downloading installation libraries depends on the source of the installation libraries and which installation media you are using to install the products.

You have the following options for unloading or downloading the installation libraries, with different JCL for each option:
