Issue/Introduction

ENF/CCI procedures uses NODE and CONNECT statements so that during ENF startup (after VTAM initialization is complete) CONNECT is established .
How do you dynamically remove these connections (prior to changing CCIPARMs in ENF procedure) so that no retries are generated for remaining z/OS lpars .

Cause

shut down z/OS lpars that now communicate with others via Common Services and VTAM links 

Environment

Releases 14.1 and 15.0

Component :CA COMMON SERVICES FOR Z/OS CCIMVS

Resolution

To remove a node within a VTAM/LU0 connection, it must be inactivated
before the remove e.g.

1 - /ENF,VARY(INACT,SYSID,ASYS)
2 - /ENF,REMOVE(SYSID,ASYS)

If the connections are driven from multiple systems, the vary/remove commands must be executed from each connected system.
