Sterling Connect:Direct for i5/OS considerations

You need to be aware of considerations for Sterling Connect:Direct® for i5/OS servers when you are integrating them with IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor.

Set up the following items before you begin using IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor:

  • Create a relational database entry (ADDRDBDIRE or WRKRDBDIRE).
  • Create a user profile with access rights to the Sterling Connect:Direct library. Do not use the user profile called CDADMIN.
  • Ensure that the DDM server is active.
  • If a firewall is configured between a Sterling Connect:Direct for i5/OS server managed by IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor, then IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor uses the following i5/OS services and ports. The ports listed are the default values. These port assignments can be modified using the WRKSRVTBLE command. IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor uses ephemeral ports to establish connections to the i5/OS services. For more information on the WRKSRVTBLE command, refer to the i5/OS manuals. The following table is the list of i5/OS services and ports:
