To authenticate users/applications based on the Certificates rather than using userid and passwords
Currently, Any user trying to access NDM has to logon with userid and password either manually or via batch jobs. In order to avoid clear text passwords, Users can be authenticated based on certificates.
Improve on C:D z/OS the last STEP COPY with all information after many restarts on the File Transfer incoming traffic
Description: To avoid information inconsistency of the STEP COPY (restart) of the file received and the C:D statistics information as records and VTAM bytes. Proposal is for C:D z/OS Caching all of the STEP COPY (restart) information on incoming F...
Provide additional granularity for the UPPER.CASE= initialization parameter
Currently, as documented in the C:D for zOS V5.2 Administration Guide, the UPPER.CASE= parameter determines if initialization messages are send to the console in Upper (YES) or Lower/Mixed case (NO). However, this parameter also dictates if inform...
Improve on C:D z/OS the caching all of the RACF userid support on the File Transfer incoming traffic
Description: To reduce the allocation time of a file, would be better to implement on the C:D z/OS the caching of all userid that RACF (ACEE) support on the inbound traffic, that is basically to memorize the accesses and minimize the queries to th...
Enhance C:D to provide better support for zEDC datasets
We are implementing zEDC across our production environment and are trying to avoid mass updates to all of our C:D processes.
We would like to be able to transmit a zEDC dataset without having to update hundreds of existing processes.
Connect:Direct for zOS copying files to SNODE (Linux or Windows ) at the same time using a '*' mask to individual datasets
The client SERPRO would like that was possible in Connect:Direct CDP pull a list of datasets that meet your dataset mask with the '*' (for eg. ABCDEF*.TXT)and based on that list of datasets that match then to start copies each of the datasets one ...
C:D Link failure mesage ids - SVTN001I and SVTO022I documentation
There are few of the transfers ended (failed) with connect: direct completion code 10 along with completion link failure message text SVTN001I and SVTO022I. We checked under below path for the allocation errors message id along with max retry limi...
Allow longer string compares in Modal Logic in C:D Z/OS processes
See PMR 23729,060,618
In Connect Direct z/OS Processes a recent NF Apar allowed to check Variables
IF (&TEST EQ C'NO') THEN ..
But this is limited to 8 char according to our findings in PMR
"The description should have noted that when usin...
