Secure Plus Error Message Enhancement

Is there any way to capture the SNODE name for which the SSL Handshake failure occurring with the error message CAPA202E, since the affected SNODE name is not present in the same line? We are able to find SVTM055I message in the next line but it's not feasible to scrap the SNODE information from that line in CA-OPS/MVS script.

How will this idea be used?

Automation script is not able to scrap the right node involved in CSPA202E as it's displayed in previous line or next line of the error message. So, the automation alert is misleading to find/analyse the right node where the actual issue occurred.

    This feature is now available in Connect Direct for z/OS 6.1.

    Updated messages SVTM600i and SVTM601i are issued for true SSL handshake errors.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe these capabilities were added in CD zOS 52, PTF UI34005.  In that PTF we added message ids SVTM600I and SVTM601I that includes the information you're seeking. Please download and apply this maintenance and let us know if it doesn't meet your needs.  I will need to decline this request as it already exists, but please don't hesitate to use this tool if you think of other ideas we should consider.
