We solve, and provide analytical expressions, for current-free magnetic configurations in the context of initial setups of 3-dimensional simulations of astrophysical jets involving an accretion disk corona in hydrostatic balance around a central object. These configurations which thread through the accretion disk and its corona preserve the initial hydrostatic state. This work sets stage for future 3-dimensional jet simulations (including disk rotation and mass-load) where launching, acceleration and collimation mechanisms can be investigated.
