VM:Operator

Issue/Introduction

We have VM:Operator configured as a SYSLOGD SENDER. The receiver is not a z/VM system. 

We have been asked to encrypt the connection. 

 Is there a way to specify an encrypted connection for syslog?

Environment

Release : 3.1

Component : CA VM:Operator

Resolution

Download and apply VM:Operator PTF SO08021. 

This enhancement provides support in CA VM:Operator to encrypt data and secure TCP socket connections for RVS and SYSLOGD functions using TLS via z/VM TCP/IP System Services. These TCP socket connections are secured by specifying the new TLSLABEL option on the RVS or SYSLOGD configuration record.
