Meaning – The term other-domain resource, refers to a representation for a logical unit that is owned by another domain and is referenced by a symbolic name, which can be qualified by a network identifier.
Cross-domain resources are logical units (application programs, peripheral nodes, and terminals) that are controlled by another VTAM domain. You define cross-domain resources in one or more cross-domain resource major nodes. Each cross-domain resource represents a minor node. You can also define model cross-domain resources in one or more cross-domain resource major nodes. Each model cross-domain resource represents a potential group of similarly named cross-domain resource minor nodes.
Example of usage – “You define a cross-domain resource major node with one VBUILD definition statement for the major node, one CDRSC definition statement for each cross-domain resource in the major node, and one CDRSC definition statement for each model cross-domain resource in the major node.”
