Issue/Introduction

CA7 has internal code that uses a TCPIP service to determine the host name. The host name CA7 resolves to is not the TCP v4/v6 dual stack host name we need CA7 to connect to. 
It was found that CA7/Autosys CPX (cross platform scheduling) is looking for old TCP v4 hostname. CA7 support mentioned that it has the same limitation in regard to Dual Stack.

Does  CCITCPGW have  the ability to point to  a desired v4/v6 TCPIP hostname?

 

Cause

 CA7 does not currently have a way of allowing an override  pointing  to the desired dual stack host name. 

Environment

CA COMMON SERVICES Release 14.1 and 15.0

Component : CAICCI-MVS

Resolution

By default, CCISSLGW will be using IPv4 and IPv6 (depending on the ip address of the adjacent system).  Too control which IP address is used, control this from the PROTOCOL statement in your CCI parms.

PROTOCOL(TCPSSLGW,ip_address:port#,retry-time,sysid)

If specifying an IPv6 address place the address between "<" and ">"  for example

PROTOCOL(TCPIPGW,<FF80::CF3A:CF0E:6FD1:EAFC>:7000,01,SYSA)
