This document describes the steps for installing the Natural TSO Interface (product code NTI) on z/OS.
When used in this document, the notation

See General Prerequisites and System Support in the section Overview of the Installation Process.
The installation medium contains the following data set required for product installation:
|Data Set Name||Contents|
Copy the data set into your environment as described in Copying Data Sets to a z/OS Disk in the section Installing Natural.
Sample installation jobs are contained in the
NATvrs.JOBS data set
and are prefixed with the product code. The data set is provided on the
installation medium supplied for base Natural.
Be sure to read Installation Process and Major Natural Features before you start the installation procedure.
- Note for LE Options:
If you want Natural to run in the IBM Language Environment (LE), set the System Maintenance Aid (SMA) parameter
Y(Yes). The default setting is
N(No). Additionally, if you want to modify the LE options in the
NATLEOPTsource module or if you use non-Natural programs running in 24-bit mode, set the appropriate SMA parameter as described in Build the Natural-Specific IBM Language Environment Options in Installing Natural.
The installation procedure comprises the following:
(Job I070, Step 2400)
Create a TSO CLIST for Natural.
This CLIST is used later to invoke Natural under TSO. Note that the CLIST supplied with this step is only a basic example which you can adapt to your requirements and to your TSO environment.
(Job I070, Step 2410)
ADARUN cards in a source library.
This is required by the CLIST created in Step 1: Create the CLIST for the Natural TSO Interface.
(Job I080, Steps 0010, 0015)
Modify the Natural parameter module for TSO.
Configure the TSO batch interface:
Modify the settings of the parameters supplied with the
macro in the Natural parameter module to meet your requirements. For
descriptions of these parameters, see the corresponding dynamic profile
TSOP in the
Parameter Reference documentation.
Modify the following parameters:
file-number are the values you
specified when loading the system files during the
Procedure for base Natural.
Global buffer pool:
If you want to use a global buffer pool, specify the
For all other parameters:
You can generally use the default values. Modify only the values of those parameters whose default values do not suit your requirements. For descriptions of the individual parameters contained in the parameter module, refer to the Parameter Reference documentation.
Assemble and link the Natural parameter module.
(Job I080, Step 0020)
Link the environment-dependent nucleus.
Skip this step if the Adabas link module is available in your LPA.
Perform either of the following steps:
Include the Adabas load library in the steplib of your TSO user procedures.
Copy the modules listed in the section referring to installation with TSO of the appropriate Adabas installation documentation to a library of your TSO user steplib.
You can verify the successful installation of the Natural TSO Interface by performing the following steps:
Start a TSO session in ISPF mode.
Invoke the CLIST you created in Step 1: Create the CLIST for the Natural TSO Interface.
