Environment

DATABridge version 6.2 SP1

Situation

This technical note lists the hardware and software requirements for DATABridge Host, DATABridge Enterprise Server, and DATABridge Client: Windows, UNIX, and Linux.

To install and run DATABridge 6.2 Service Pack 1 (SP1), your system must meet the following hardware and software requirements.

Resolution

DATABridge Host

Hardware Requirements

DATABridge runs on all Unisys MCP-hosted mainframes.

Software requirements

  • Unisys mainframe system with an MCP level SSR 51.1 or higher. Note: Beginning with DATABridge 6.2 SP1, MCP level SSR 56.1 is supported.
  • DMSII software (including the DMALGOL compiler).
  • DMSII database DESCRIPTION, CONTROL, DMSUPPORT library, and audit files.
  • Access to the DMSII database.

DATABridge Enterprise Server

In addition to the following requirements for DATABridge Enterprise Server, DATABridge Host and Client software must be installed and running.

Hardware requirements

  • ClearPath PC with Logical disks or MCP disks (VSS disks in MCP format), or a Windows PC with visibility to MCP disks on a storage area network (SAN).
  • Unisys mainframe system with an MCP level SSR 51.1 or higher. Note: Beginning with DATABridge 6.2 SP1, MCP level SSR 56.1 is supported.

Software requirements

  • Windows 7, Vista, or Windows Server 2008 R2, 2008, or 2003
  • DATABridge Host version 5.2 or higher (MIRROR and XFER commands require version 5.2 or higher)

Important: To avoid potential problems, we strongly recommend that you upgrade both the Host and Enterprise Server software to 6.2 Service Pack 1 simultaneously.

  • DATABridge Client version 6.0 or higher
  • An Internet browser is required to view the application Help. JavaScript must be enabled to use navigation, search, and other Help features. Supported browsers include IE, Firefox, and Google Chrome.

DATABridge Client

To use the DATABridge Client, the DATABridge Host software must be installed, configured, and running on a Unisys MCP-based host.

Note the following:

  • For best results, we strongly recommend using a RAID disk array to keep the database disks separate from the operating system and client storage disks.
  • This list does not include disk space requirements for replicated DMSII data. Your relational database is likely to consume at least twice as much disk space as the DMSII data you plan to clone.

Windows Client

Hardware Requirements

Either of the following:

  • Unisys ES7000
  • Pentium® PC 1 GHz or higher (multiple CPU configuration recommended)

2 GB of RAM (4 GB recommended)

100 GB of disk space (in addition to disk space for the relational database built from DMSII data)

TCP/IP transport

Operating System

Any of the following:

  • Windows Server 2012
  • Microsoft Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (up to SP4)
  • Oracle 9i, 10g, 11g (up to 11.2.0.3)

Software

The Client Console requires Java Runtime Environment version 6 or later (available via the installer).

UNIX and Linux Clients

Hardware

Any of the following:

  • 2 GB of RAM (4 GB recommended)
  • 100 GB of free disk space for installation (in addition to disk space for the relational database built from DMSII data)
  • TCP/IP transport
