Issue/Introduction

We had mainframe bridge enabled on DEVTEST server. LPAR and CICS agents are properly configured. Using the recording feature, we are able to choose the program and record the transaction and built the virtual service. When we deploy this VS on VSE, we 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 Environment. 

Resolution

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