Abstract

HASM-HA-NF HA 4.0.1 NEW FUNCTION MRI

Error Description

Provides MRI for the following new functionality and            
enhancements:                                                  
                                                               
New Features:                                                  
1. The administrative domain's monitored resource entry limit  
has increased by over 340% to support up to 200,000 monitored  
resource entries, enabling support for the largest environments.
2. The WRKCADMRE command is enhanced with new parameters that  
enable filtering based on several criteria, including monitored
resource, library, resource type, and global status. These      
filters can be combined and support generic wildcards.          
3. The Add Cluster Administrative Domain Monitored Resource    
Entry (ADDCADMRE) command has been enhanced to support *ALL and
wildcards on the monitored resource and library parameters. In  
addition, an omit parameter has been added. These new options  
are supported for user profiles, authorization lists, classes,  
job descriptions and subsystem descriptions. Now, many resources
can be added to the administrative domain with a single command,
simplifying administrative domain setup.                        
                                                               
Enhancements:                                                  
1. Support for replicating encrypted passwords set with the    
QSYSUPWD API. Previously, the use of the QSYSUPWD API would    
cause the user-affected profile to be marked as inconsistent    
within the administrative domain.                              
2. Improved control over changing the synchronization option for
an administrative domain using the CHGCAD command even when some
nodes in the administrative domain are inactive.                
3. The WRKCADMRE command has been enhanced to work even when    
clustering is inactive. With this function, users can view      
monitored resources within an administrative domain on a local  
node even during maintenance windows.                          
4. Integrated and streamlined recovery from a data-center outage
in a HyperSwap with a LUN-level switching environment that      
enables HyperSwap protection to be restored with a single      
command.                                                        
5. Confirmation panels in PowerHA have been enhanced to use F16
instead of enter for confirm.                                  
6. Several PowerHA work panels have been enhanced to show both  
error and completion messages at the bottom of the panel upon  
execution of actions on the work panel.                        
(WRKHAPCY,WRKASPCPYD,WRKHACFGD,WRKHYSSTS,Work with cluster      
resource groups)                                                
7. A status of detached for Copy Services Manager Sessions has  
been enhanced to display as XXXX instead of blanks for          
consistency and ease of understanding.                          
8. CHGCRGCNR switch type of *SAMESITE behavior has been improved
to be more consistent in handling of ordering of the recovery  
domain.                                                        
9. User queue and user space objects used for PowerHA operation
have been moved from the QGPL library to the QUSRHASM library.  
10. Function key 'F13=Release notes' has been added to the      
WRKCLU menu to show                                            
the release notes for the PowerHA product.
