do

sudo apt-get install hercules

Now to bring it up we run the emulator however we connect with a REGULAR telnet program on the localhost to port 3270. Run the emulator like this:

hercules -f herc.cnf

Then next start the telnet session:

telnet localhost 3270

Input the following command onto the emulator:

ipl 131

Then in your telnet session you should see:

VM/370 VERSION 06 LEVEL 00 PLC 0029; 09/07/85 09:42:40 NOW 06:19:13 PST SUNDAY 10/18/09 CHANGE TOD CLOCK (YES NO) :HHCTE006A Enter input for console device 001F

The telnet session will now look like this:

RUNNING

Going from here

You can then issue the command ‘log’ on the regular telnet session. This will logout the operator user. Then on the 3270 session simply type in:

l operator

This will start the logon process for the operator user, and it’s password is operator.The other default userid password is MAINT/CPCMS.

Shutting down

In the telnet session simply type in:SHUTDOWNAnd you should see:

DMKCKP960I SYSTEM WARM START DATA SAVED DMKCKP961W SYSTEM SHUTDOWN COMPLETE
