master control program
CMS MCS shell
    the launch task reports: ABORTED .


If the request status above is not ABORTED or STOPPED, a MCP¹ shell session is or shortly will be running on support provisioned from core domain space or DIY inventory. These and the remaining states ACTIVE, INUSE, or COMPLETEDOK, implicitly reference the DS station at which you're currently a DS agent.

It may be accessed at <station-name> where

  • <station-name>  ::= ipV6Address | ipV4Address | FQDSuserName 
  • <domain>        ::= ai-integration | | <yourTLD>
  • FQDSuserName    ::= your DS agent nick FQDN, e.g. 'janedoe.<domainName>[.dom]'.
  • <yourTLD>       ::= your alt-root TLD or its public linking zone.

Launch states ABORTED, COMPLETED, OR STOPPED, imply receipt of diagnostic info by the currently selected means of notification in your home profile (icon). ABORTED is the immediate result if you are not authenticated.

Enable ssh access from your commons profile which assigns the port. The suffixless host name and IPV6 forms require DS routing. Sessions launched by ip do not persist and are strictly contained within the agent's session.

A running SPO counts as a mcpcms launch against account limits.

¹NB: 'Unisys CANDE', 'Unisys MCP', and 'Unisys WFL' are distinct from the unaffixed names and will be supported in a free feature of later DCP versions.

MCP shells may have any one of the following natures:

  • shcl, common lisp nature
  • shelly, haskell nature
  • upsh, prolog nature

  • or
  • CMS, the default nature for mcpcms, which is bash modified for DCP/MCP/WFL.

    Only mcpcms can be set in /etc/shells, the others execute as commands in a mcp shell, and only shcl gives a live default command line like fish under standard bash. The other two require a user supplied hs or pl script, and are not general interactive shells unless that script provides that functionality.

Shells have either MCP (single linux host) or DCP (whole cluster) scope, ip shells are limited to the former.
GHC and SWI are assumed for haskell and prolog, but lisp can be any combination of Allegro, CCL, (user supplied) or sbcl (the default).

The CMS level is always present, the others are outer shells adapted for the domain space knowledge engineering context.
Although adapted for MCP, I try to keep them close to the standard versions, as generic lang specific outer shells.
My preferred DDD uses the three HOLs² listed but the bash level is appropriate for shell ops with MCP unaware software, CANDE, and WFL jobs.

SYSTEM/CMS is the prototypical CL/MCS. It is meant to be a generalization of CANDE and VM/CMS .

While initially the linux bash capable terminal is supported, ODT and 3270 support are intended.
