Visa would like to see Connect Direct transmission of SMS compressed datasets improved. Today, when we transmit a compressed dataset, if it is done with out coding the DCB parms in the process it always fails on the remote node with a space abend....
Terminate the Process Waiting for Dynamic Allocation or Unallocation
CDz runs into temporarily unresponsive periodically 5 to 10 min or even longer due to the reason that SYSZTIOT ENQ exclusively held by CDz itself in which one process can't perform dynamical allocation or un allocation holding all other processes ...
We need NDM to read/write files from NAS connected drives. NAS is becoming a larger portion of our datacenter and will need to send/receive files on NAS. This worked under 5.1 but not for 5.2...I know it was never supported but was handy it worked...
Connect Direct Z/OS Password-less Sign-On : Use certificate authentication for the CD session. CD currently supports this for the API connection (e.g. port 1363) and exploring if this could be added for the server connection (i.e. port 1364). The goal would be to use the certificate Common Name as the user ID as we do for the API connection or expand to allow other sources for the user ID – Jobname, SPOE, in-line SIGNON, batch user ID, etc. – and define order of precedence.
Issue Description: Client has security initiative to remove passwords being exposed in jobs. If there is a sign on ID used it is ignored if there is a password less ID and defaults to the job card ID. If client removes password from the sign-on ca...
RACF currently supports 100 characters for passphrases. Having all z/OS software/products also support that limit aligns them with the RACF limitations. This allows users even greater options at creating longer passphrases thus a more secure one.
