XCOM Data Transport XCOM Data Transport - z/OS XCOM - SUPPORT

Issue/Introduction

Customer has provided the scenario--being executed under TSO/ISPF:


We are running XCOM on z/OS with two members in an XCOM plex. Since the migration, from one member to having

two members in the XCOM plex, the operators need to search twice for the results of file transfers, through the XCOM

panels--meaning, 
first selecting one member of the plex and then the other. For example: Server: AAAA and         then

Server: BBBB. We ask:  Is there a 
way of looking at the results for both members at the same time?  


Note: AAAA and BBBB are changed from the original.

Cause

-

Environment

OS : z/OS

Release : 12.0

C
omponent : CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS

Resolution

First we confirmed the following with customer: When you say "XCOM plex" do you mean the old XCOMPLEX feature

or are you referring to the current PLEXQ? 
They replied they use the current PLEXQ. Next we provided them with  the

response from Sustaining Engineering:
-


If you are using PLEXQ, this can be done, but you MUST use the PLQ protocol     and

reference the GROUP name used by the servers participating in the PLEXQ  GROUP.
