Error description

  • PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Specifying a parameter of PROTOCOL1=IP.PIPE for the command
    setagentconnection does not result in change in the target
    system's
    configuration.
    
    RECREATE INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. Install ITM TEMS 630 FP4 on Linux
    2. Install ITM 630 FP4 LZ Agent on Linux
    3. Configure LZ Agent to connect to TEMS
    4. Issue the following command to configure the LZ Agent to
    access a
    different TEMS Server
    
    tacmd setagentconnection -n endpoint:LZ -a -p SERVER=otherTEMS
    PROTOCOL1=IP.PIPE IP_PIPE_PORT=1918 BSERVER=otherBTEMS
    BPROTOCOL1=IP.PIPE BIP_PIPE_PORT=1918 BACKUP=Y
    
    5. Examine the envCfg.rsp file located in the
    $CANDLEHOME/tmaitm6/agentdepot directory on the target system
    and
    observe that the keyword NETWORKPROTOCOL is assigned to IP.PIPE
    and not
    ip.pipe.
    

Local fix

  • Configure the endpoint agents locally to reference the new TEMS.
    

Problem summary

  • Specifying a parameter of PROTOCOL1=IP.PIPE for the command
    setagentconnection does not result in change in the target
    system's configuration.  The configuration of the target system
    remains the same as before the command is issued.
    
    
    Parameters specified by the user for the command line command
    setagentconnection are not correctly parsed which may result in
    the command parameters not taking effect for the target agent.
    Fox example, specifying a parameter of PROTOCOL1=IP.PIPE for the
    command setagentconnection does not result in change in the
    target system's configuration.  The configuration of the target
    system remains the same as before the command is issued.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Improved the parsing algorithm to correctly handle user
    specified parameters.
    
    The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance
    packages:
    
      | fix pack | 6.3.0-TIV-ITM-FP0006
    

Temporary fix

  • Do not specify the PROTOCOL1 value when assigning a SERVER.
    This will use the default settings.
