Issue

Solution Information

Cause

Many customers looking for a alternate communication channel to deal status and commands between mainframe and MDL / DLm (Virtuent) systems.
The normal way to communicate is over the channel (FICON / ESCON) and not over TCP/IP

mainstorconcept has developed the product mzHOST to execute commands over TCP/IP on remote systems,  directly from the z/OS system environment (console) and then process the output in z/OS.
Alternatively you can receive information from an external system per PUSH in the console

Virtuent is the main software application from a MDL / DLm system to emulate mainframe VTL functionality.
In fact, you can also operate with tapes in virtuent. With mzHOST integration in Virtuent is it possible to send commands to z/OS and receive the result.
