4 Configuring Business Copy Z
This chapter provides instructions for configuring BC Z.
Workflow for setting up Business Copy Z
Set up BC Z before you create the copy pair. You must have Storage Administrator (Local Copy)
role to perform BC Z operations.
Use the following workflow to set up BC Z:
(Optional) If you have created CGs, manage the CG IDs (see
IDs for Business Copy Z" (page
Release the reserved mainframe consistency groups (see
consistency groups" (page
(Optional) Enable the system options (see
Workflow for managing CG IDs for Business Copy Z
Use the following workflow to manage CG IDs for BC Z using RWC:
If you plan to use CGs in BCM/IBM PPRC, reserve the CGs for BC Z so that you can perform
tasks on the pairs in the group, using RWC. Otherwise, skip this step.
For more information about reserving CGs, see
Complete one of the following:
If you are using BCM/IBM PPRC to create CGs, assign the same CG ID to all of the BC
Z pairs in the group. Use a CG value that was reserved in step 1.
You can use CTG ID 00 to 7F (or 0 to 127) for BC, BC Z, and FS. The HP XP7 storage
system exclusively uses CTG IDs 80 to FF (or 128 to 255) for FS.
If you are using BCM or IBM PPRC to run commands, create the BC Z pair and assign it
to a CG.
For more information about creating BC Z pairs and assigning the pair to a CG, see
"Creating BC Z pairs" (page
For more information about creating CGs using IBM PPRC/BCM, see the IBM z/OS DFSMS
Advanced Copy Services documentation.
For information about setting up CGs and performing pair tasks using RAID Manager, see
the HP XP7 RAID Manager User Guide and the HP XP7 RAID Manager Reference Guide.

If you plan to use CGs in BCM/IBM PPRC, use RWC to reserve the CGs, which includes specifying
the CTG ID.
