Issue/Introduction

Have mainframe bridge enabled on DEVTEST server.

LPAR and CICS agents are properly configured.

Using the recording feature, are able to choose the program and record the transaction and built the virtual service.

When the VS is deployed on the VSE, get this error:

Unable to contact the Mainframe Bridge. Ensure the Mainframe Bridge has been enabled and is running.

Cause

lisa.pathfinder.on was set to false 

The property "lisa.pathfinder.on"   turns on and off large sections of code that deals with the agent.

With this property set to false, the VSE cannot talk to the Broker.

Environment

All supported DevTest releases.

Resolution

Set lisa.pathfinder.on=true for the VSE machine in the local.properties file.

Restart the VSE.
