Reporting available for Secure+ data within Connect Direct 4.1x and 4.2x

I am being tasked with providing numbers on a monthly basis on how many remote nodes I have configured for Secure+ on each of my supported servers. I need to be able to detect in the nodes subdirectory which of the nodes are set up for Secure+ by some kind of visual confirmation, or something that I can trigger on in a script that goes and gathers the information. Currently, the only way I can find out which nodes are set up for Secure+ is to go into either the spadmin.sh or the spcli.sh tools and visually inspect each node, and manually write down which nodes are set up for Secure+. This is untenable because I'm being asked for updates to this information on a monthly basis.

    Thank you for your patience as we've progressed with the enhancement request backlog for Connect:Direct. Unfortunately after additional consideration we believe that the decision on this request must be changed and that it will not be considered for inclusion into Connect:Direct moving forward. We believe that this request would be better served through IBM Control Center as it has reports that can be used to easily gather this information.

    Sincerely,

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that it would be beneficial for Connect:Direct to provide a better way to track various configuration settings across an entire C:D environment.  I have accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will work to move it to the roadmap moving into the future.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
