Environment Variables for Server and Client Applications
The environment variables _CEE_RUNOPTS, _BPXK_AUTOCVT, _BPX_SHAREAS, _BPX_BATCH_UMASK and LIBPATH must be set as shown in SSHENV and sshsetenv when running SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS programs (see below). The server startup procedures described in Section Running the Server set these variables automatically for the server.
The NAME=VALUE format (as in SSHENV) is used when the client or server programs are run under MVS, and the Bourne shell format (as in sshsetenv) is used when the programs are run from a USS command line.
Note: The environment files must not contain line numbers or reading them will fail.
The server will do coded character set conversion on request when transferring files. The iconv function is used for the conversion. iconv() uses the following environment variables. Usually changing these variables is not necessary:
Tells iconv_open(Y, X) which type of a conversion method to set up when there is a choice between "direct" conversion from X to Y and "indirect" X to UCS-2 to Y.
Tells iconv_open() which z/OS dataset name prefix to use to find the UCS-2 tables if they cannot be found in the HFS.
