Abstract

This article describes the function to allow the user to automatically perform an Initial Program Load (IPL) of the System/36, run these start up procedures, and leave the system in a ready state for communicating in a network. This implies that the system can recover from a power outage and be brought to a usable state without jeopardizing system security and without operator intervention.
