    Since Java is used for the Assure Client, you can use the jar command to unpack the file, including on z/OS USS. You may need to set JAVA_HOME before running this command:

    jar -xvf IA-9.3-client.zip

    I also just updated our Assure Client Installation (z/OS) article and replaced the unzip command with the one above.

    Having trouble editing setupzos.sh in TSO


    If I browse it it looks good





    export JAVA_HOME


    DIRBASE=`dirname $0`

    DIRNAME=`(cd $DIRBASE; pwd)`


    HOSTNAME=`uname -n`

    export HOSTNAME


    unset CLASSPATH



    But when I edit it looks like gibberish.  What is the proper way to edit this in TSO ?

    Appears that the member is ebcdic but the editor is trying to treat it as ascii

    I got past that and did the rest of the install but when I run aboutAssure.sh I get following errors.  Do I need to be on Java 1,8 instead of 1.7 ?

    Yes, Java 8 is required. For reference, Assure Client specs is part of the "Command Line Specifications" section within the v9.3 System Requirements
