R/2 « R/2

Purpose

The following topics provide an overview about the configuration steps you must perform on the partner systems.

As of R/2 Release 5.0D, you can also use an RFC call instead of a CPI-C call.

If you use RFC, the side info tables XCOM and RFCD must be configured with matching destination entries.

R/2 on MVS/VSE Host

Communication between R/2 Systems is only possible on MVS/VSE hosts if CICS is used as the data communications system. Local communication on an R/2 host is not possible because CICS does not support a local Conversation via SNA LU6.2.

For details on configuration, refer to the following topcis:

R/2 on BS2000 Host

The following constellations are possible for communication between R/2 Systems on BS2000 hosts:

UTM on both Hosts

If UTM is used on both BS2000 systems, a local Conversation can be operated.

For details on configuration, refer to the following topics:

DCAM on both Hosts

An R/2 System on a BS2000 host with DCAM can communicate via the SAP Gateway and DCAM with an R/2 partner system via TCP/IP.

For details on configuration, refer to the following topics:
