Connect:Direct netmap may contain only 3 addresses on HP Nonstop
Today on unix, mainframe or windows the number of alternate ip addresses that we may enter in a netmap definition is unlimited.
On HP Nonstop (not HP-UX), we are limited to 3 hostnames or ip addresses (the documentation says:
IPADDR=ip.address|hostname|(list) Identifies the host name or IP address of the computer running Sterling Connect:Direct, in the format of hostname or nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn (IPv4) or x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x (IPv6). A list of multiple host names or addresses (maximum of 3) can be specified in parentheses
Due to the use of three data centers and load balancing configurations, we often have the case when one connect configuration may have up to 5 different ip addresses (and aliases). I also have one machine where one ip address is resolved by 7 aliases.
So I would like to create (/enlist to ) an enhancement request so that we may use more ip addresses in the definition of an adjacent node on HP Non stop
