Abstract

OSP-COMM-TCPIP-OTHER-UNPRED HOSTTABLE ENTRIES CAPITAL LETTERS

Error Description

It has been found an issue where a PTF in 7.2 had changed the  
behavior of how host names are stored in the IBM i host table.  
We started converting everything to upper case. This probably  
should have only happened for the Japanese CCSID.              

Problem Summary

ADDTCPHTE and CHGTCPHTE convert all host names to upper case    
characters whether the name is enclosed in apostrophes or not.  
Mixed case host names are necessary only for some cross-platform
applications.                                                  

Problem Conclusion

A change has been made that will allow the use of mixed case    
host names if it's required by an application. However, most    
applications will work correctly with upper case host names.    
Refer to the special instructions for this PTF if there is a    
specific application requirement for mixed case host names.
