    1. Hi Archinline,
      The Dezhi mainframe and online user support website are up and running now. Some times the website will be down due to high traffic, so if you are not able to access it, wait for some time and do try to create the Id again.

      1. Hi,
        Yesterday i downloaded an 3270 emulator and tried to connect to the host “zos.efglobe.com” and another “fandezhi.efglobe.com”. But i am not getting connected, i get an error saying “Conduit error: could not open socket”. I have installed 3270 on windows 7 PC for practising.
        Also as suggested in this page i tried to apply for TSO user id. but i keep getting this message.
        “Sorry, due to our overloaded system resources, we have stopped this service.”
        please let me know how to solve this issue of conduit error and how can i apply for tso user id.

        Thanks

        1. Hi Mahalakshmi,
          I can see that the dezhi service is still up and running. Since the mainframe access is free many training centers from India started offloading their loads into Dezhi mainframe and that may caused admins to put a restriction on the mainframe usage. You may want to retry later. I donot have much idea about the socket error you are facing, try a different emulator. IBM provides free 60 day trial of Personal communications (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/r/pcomm/).

  1. Sir whenever i want to create mainframe user id and i try to Apply New Tso Id. then i got message every time “Sorry, due to our overloaded system resources, we have stopped this service”.What can i do.please help.
    .

  2. There is no separate option to get on to ispf.just we could log on to tso segment.Initially it worked fie for two times,then it leaves this message and gets closed off.Please help.Thanks in advance.

    1. Sam,
      Can you be more specific on you question like the issue you are facing with the message you are getting. I just used efglobe mainframe and I was not getting any issues. I just had to press enter few times till I get into ispf.

  3. i WANT TO COMPILE MY COBOL PROGRAM FANDEZHI SYSTEM…Can any one provide the suitable jcl for this particular FANDEZHI system….i tried the usual IGYWCL procedure..but that seems to be not available here…

    1. Hi rajaopalan,
      You could see the available procs in the PDS: SYSFAN.PROCLIB. If you are specifically looking for the JCL to compile cobol codes then you can use the below JCL (Dont forget to replace your user ID, your source and load libraries. The Load Lib record format should be “U”. In the below JCL hllwrld is just a sample program name you could replace it with your program name.

      //USERIDJ JOB ‘SHIBU THANNIKKUNNATH’,CLASS=A,NOTIFY=&SYSUID
      //JS0010 EXEC IGYWCLG
      //COBOL.SYSIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.COBOL.SRC(HLLWRLD)
      //LKED.SYSLIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.LOAD.LIB(HLLWRLD)
      //LKED.SYSLMOD DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.LOAD.LIB(HLLWRLD)

      Let me know if you are facing any other issues.
      Cheers
      Shibu

      1. Thank you Shibu…i was searching for sys1.proclib or zos.proclib…i never knew about sysfan.proclib…
        another doubt I have…when we write exec proc=igywclg , where exactly is the default search path is mentioned..how does the system know it has to search sysfan.proclib

        1. Hi Rajagopalan,

          Glad it helped, The default procedure lib is the part of zOS customization. you can also see the Proc lib under the High level Qualifier where the product is installed. e.g IGYWCL can be found under IGY330.SIGYPROC

  15. Hi Shibu,
    I have received my TSO ID but unfortunately I am unable to get into the TSO panel after I give the TSO user id and password. It displays all the notifications followed by the error message,”Error running ISP , line 764: Unexpected or Unmatched End.”

    Please help.

    Thanks.

      1. Hi Shibu,

        I am using the IBM Personal Communication for the connection .
        Just for your information I had successfully logged in once yesterday evening.
        Unable to put a screenshot here.
        #Error(encountered last evening)
        Pree enter when you have read the above
        764 *** end
        164 *** x=ShowMessage()
        35 *** x=setISPF()
        Error running ISP, line 784: Unexpected or Unmatched END

        Note:-Today morning I was even unable to reach this place.Once the pwd is entered it throws me out of the session.Are you able to login.

  16. Hi can anyone tell me how long this process take to get the user id and password ??? because i had applied it some 5 days back and i have still not any credentials !!

  17. Hi – I have been trying to create a new TSO ID – seems they have stopped the service and also trying to register in forums , always getting invalid email address and not found. Seems even though a valid id which I am using for past 12 years , does not work. So basically it is intended to create any new more IDs.

  18. Hey Shibu, first of all congrats for the great work you’ve been doing here, man.

    I have a problem, probably a simple one. I’m trying to run the IGYWCLG proc but it says the module can’t be found. I’ve tried setting a new steplib for SYSFAN.PROCLIB, IGY330.SIGYPROC but it doesn’t work..

    Do you know of any changes in the proclibs? Could you help me out? I’m logged on right now.
