JCLCheck General Transaction Server (GTS) and DVIPA support

JCLCheck Workload Automation


We are using the General Transaction Server (GTS) for doing remote checking with JCLCHECK. It is configured to use TCP as a communication method as the checking is being done between LPARs in the development sysplex and production sysplex.

I am looking for a way to be able to move the production GTS server to a different LPAR within the same sysplex without changing the client definitions on the development GTS server and without changing any DNS names, i.e. having the GTS server listen on a dynamic VIPA which moves as the server is moved.

Question: Is there a way for GTS to bind either to a specified DVIPA (which is defined in the TCPIPSxx member) or to INADDR_ANY so that the DVIPA can be assigned via the PORT BIND statement in TCP.


Release : 12.0

Component : JCLCheck workload Automation

Feature: ChekPlex Remote Validation


Answer: The CA General Transaction Server (GTS) currently does not support either method.
