Issue/Introduction

We are upgrading from 12.1 to 12.2 and need to determine the userid and password that were entered for Connect:Direct statistics monitoring.

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster File Transfer Management

Resolution

The Connect:Direct userid and password are maintained in the CDAPI parameter group in /PARMS (=A.C.P).
The password does not appear in the screen for security reasons.
Similarly, both the userid and password are encrypted in the INIFILE.

The INIFILE contains the complete content from /PARMS as a text file in the TESTEXEC.

Using the INIFILE to migrate from 12.1 to 12.2 allows retention of the userid and password values without having to know what they are.

The process for preparing and using the INIFILE during migration is described here
