The following information contains procedures and tips for meeting z/OSMF requirements. For complete information, go to IBM Documentation and read the following documents.

z/OS requirements for z/OSMF configuration

Ensure that the z/OS system meets the following requirements:

RequirementsDescriptionResources in IBM Knowledge Center

Common Event Adapter (CEA) serverThe CEA server, which is a co-requisite of the Common Information Model (CIM) server, enables the ability for z/OSMF to deliver z/OS events to C-language clients.Customizing for CEA
Common Information Model (CIM) serverz/OSMF uses the CIM server to perform capacity-provisioning and workload-management tasks. Start the CIM server before you start z/OSMF (the IZU* started tasks).Reviewing your CIM server setup
CONSOLE and CONSPROF commandsThe CONSOLE and CONSPROF commands must exist in the authorized command table.Customizing the CONSOLE and CONSPROF commands
Java levelIBM® 64-bit SDK for z/OS®, Java Technology Edition V8 or later is required.Software prerequisites for z/OSMF
TSO region sizeTo prevent exceeds maximum region size errors, verify that the TSO maximum region size is a minimum of 65536 KB for the z/OS system.N/A
User IDsUser IDs require a TSO segment (access) and an OMVS segment. During workflow processing and REST API requests, z/OSMF might start one or more TSO address spaces under the following job names: userid; substr(userid, 1, 6) CN (Console).N/A
