Issue/Introduction

When using the MVS Agent, if the bindaddr is set, file transfers fail due to being unable to connect to make the transfer.

The errors reported will be similar to:

20180726 / 132510.368 - U01002207 Message type 'FTXSENDQ' is not accepted on this connection.

Cause

A problem has been solved where the z/OS Agent was registered in Automation Engine with the wrong IP address causing the agents to try to connect to each other in reverse mode. This issue was not handled properly in the z/OS Agent.

Environment

Release:
Component: AAUTEN

Resolution

To workaround this issue, you can use a version 11.2 MVS Agent on your v12 system.

The issue was found and fixed with:

Automation.Engine 12.1.5 in Agent MVS released 05-20-2019
Automation.Engine 12.2.3 in Agent MVS pending release. 

Hotfix-Description: The z/OS Agent is registered in the Automation Engine with the host's default IP address, not with the IP specified in bindaddr parameter.
