Pinned topic CTG on NT and z/os v1.12

‏2011-06-16T09:09:48Z |
Hi there - we currently have CTG running on a Windows NT server, which connects into CICS on z/os on an LU6.2 connection. We are going to be rolling out z/so v.12 late this year, and the migration document states :
"Upgrade Windows 2000, 95, 98, and NT clients (Recommended)
© 2010 IBM Corporation Page 8 of 94 August 4, 2010 Migrating to z/OS 1.12: Part 2 of 2
Recommended because z/OS does not support service for client operating systems whose service is withdrawn by the operating system manufacturer.

z/OS no longer supports service for client operating systems whose service is withdrawn by the operating system manufacturer. As a result, IBM no longer supports service for clients running Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT Workstation 4"

My understanding of the above statement, is that that it means this set-up will no longer work, and that the application will need to find an alternative to CTG on NT - is that right?

    Hi Sharon,

    It does appear that z/OS support will not be available for any kind of issues arising from interoperation with out of support Operating Systems generally.

    In terms of the CICS Transaction Gateway portfolio of products, today there is no in-support releases that support the operating systems you have listed.

    Best regards,
    Rob.
