Registering non-sap system into SLD

I am at a customer site and the customer have a mainframe non-SAP application. They want to extract data from the mainframe client into MDS (MDM) and after data cleansing it will push the data back to MDC (mainframe computer).

How do you register the mainframe application on XI because when I entered as the third party software, there is no field to choose for mainframe. I have the IP address which I entered as the host name.

The second part is how do you create the logical system MDS and XI on the non-SAP system????

My suspicious is not to register the non-sap system with XI on their SLD but use XML file to load into MDS and after cleansing somehow use external file to load data back into the mainframe computer. Does any XI experts out there have experience on this??? Your help is appreciated.

    Why do you need to register anything on the mainframe system ? Nothing needs to be defined here for systems defined in the SLD.

    When defining the mainframe in the SLD,it should be defined as a <b>3rd party technical system</b>. The type of system is a <b>3rd party system</b> then you should enter the name such as Mainframe and the IP address of the machine.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards
