Is it possible to run a second copy of VVP on the same LPAR and if so, how?


You will need to do the following:

  1. Create a member in SYS1.VTAMLST with the VTAM applids for the second VVP.
  2. Create another VVPFDFCT member, changing the APPLID parameter to match the  one created in step 1.
  3. Assemble and link the new VVPFDFCT member into a second load library.
  4. Create a new VVP proc in your proclib under a new name, placing the load library from step 3 ahead of the first VVP load library.

Member VVPFDFCT is the only one that must be assembled if you place both load libraries on the STEPLIB DD for the second VVP.  The VTAM file can be shared using the RLS feature.
