Special Considerations

This section contains considerations in addition to the procedures defined. Refer to the following notes before installing the product.

  • Although Connect:Direct® for UNIX Process names can be up to 255 characters long, some IBM® Connect:Direct platforms, such as Connect:Direct for z/OS® limit Process names to eight characters. Processes running between UNIX and platforms that limit Process names to eight characters can have unpredictable results if longer names are specified.
  • The Connect:Direct Secure Plus initparms record and the user authority that have been added to Connect:Direct for UNIX version 4.1.00 support remote configuration of Connect:Direct Secure Plus. These configuration options are needed when using the Central Management feature available in Control Center 5.0 and later.
  • If you are using a certificate that was created with an older version of Certificate Wizard, the certificate may contain a blank line between the "BEGIN" and "END" statements that define a private key. This version cannot process the blank line, resulting in an error. If a certificate generates an error, delete the blank line in the certificate.
