Equipment Requirements

​​To access CIRS, all equipment (printers, and PC’s) must be hooked up to a control unit that is connected to the SCO mainframe computer. CIRS is compatible with all equipment currently hooked up to PIMS.  

All PC’s require a 3270 terminal emulation board (e.g., IRMA 3270 PCI Adapter), and emulation software with file transfer capabilities (e.g., myExtra Enterprise).  Contact your campus IT support for recommendations and installation assistance. 

The SCO must be advised of and approve changes to the telecommunication environment used to access the SCO’s computer.  This includes the addition of new terminals or personal computers, conversion to LANs, WAN’s and/or replacement of control units with gateways, routers, or bridges. 

To add or change hardware used for CIRS, please submit Form CIRS 001 to HR-ISA. This form is available under the section CIRS Forms​. ​
