Connection profile created in portal - loses DB2 zOS properties once connected to by DataMaker


Article ID: 129131


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


After the new profile, denoted by p(old conn name) is created for zOS DB2 with properties: protocol=TCPIP;datetimestringformat=JIS;authentication=SERVER. It saves and is seen on the portal. If I look at list of all profiles in DataMaker before logging in, I can see new pDSG with all properties. Open DataMaker and connect to that new profile created within portal, part of the properties are truncated to only show: protocol=TCPIP from DataMaker. Open Portal for this same pDSG profile and it shows no connection properties from the Connection profile edit window.
