Implementing ficon on DCX-4S


What are the parameters/settings to be enabled when implementing ficon on DCX-4S switch? I have an existing DCX-4S switch on production which is catering fcp devices, now we are connecting a mainframe to access tape device with cascaded setup. How can we mix fcp and ficon devices on the switch?

additional keep in mind, DCX must be licensed for FICON, and you should run approved and Certified Ficon FOS Release.
