A Netfinity Enabled for S/390, generally known as a Netfinity/EFS system, is the smallest S/390 fully supportedby IBM. It is based on a PC Server, running UNIX, and the S/390 emulation product FLEX-ES. FLEX-ES is a product of Fundamental Software, Incorporated (FSI) of Fremont, California. This package (the Server, UNIX, and FLEX-ES) is intended to run all current S/390 operating systems.
This IBM Redbooks publication introduces the Netfinity/EFS system, describes the setup process of the system in some detail, and then describes the installation and use of a particular z/OS package known as the z/OS AD CD-ROM system. While this document is primarily directed at members of IBM’s S/390 Partners in Development program (also known as PartnerWorld), most of the content applies to any Netfinity/EFS system.
