CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Issue/Introduction

Cust explained: Below is from the NetMaster for TCP/IP 12.2 documentation. This setup section is required to support 
zERT functions--but we probably will only turn on ZERTSUMMARY. With that: What functions are still available    to us
for zERT?:

-

 

Enable the following zERT-related parameters in the TCP/IP STACK PROFILE dataset:

 

GLOBALCONFIG parm ZERT

SMFCONFIG TYPE119 parm ZERTDETAIL

NETMONITOR parm ZERTSERVICE

-

Cause

-

Environment

OS : z/OS

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

NetMaster Level 2 Support provided the response:

 

We do not intercept zERT summary records at the moment--they were not available at the time that we implemented    zERT support.  

 

We use each zERT SMF detail record to send to the Packet Analyzer where it then correlates and updates the encryption information

for each specific connection. ZERTDETAIL is required to use zERT functions in NetMaster for TCP/IP.
