Subject: How to emulate the HMC console for 2nd level VM?
I need to bring up a second level VM system that does not
have a definiti=
for any local 3270's. It was set up to use the HMC line mode
Is there a way to emulate this environment second level on
VM? I can defi=
a virtual 3270 console and use LOADP to override the default
setting but =
would rather do the same as the 1st level set up.
Is this what you need? I'm not sure.
Use VINPUT to request the z/VM control program to send the accompanying
data to the operating system running in your virtual machine. To the
operating system, the data appears to have been entered from the system
z/VM, as part of its service processor hardware simulation, assigns to
your virtual machine operator console a subset of system console
functions. If the operating system running in your virtual machine is
able to receive commands from the system console, the specified command
is sent by the control program to the operating system where it is
interpreted and processed as though it had been entered from the system
