NetMaster Network Management for SNA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Issue/Introduction

I'm a bit confused over the ROUTE command in Netmaster under OCS.

The help panels say 

ROUTE   { linkname | DOMAIN=domain-id | SSCP=sscp-name } text

However, when I use the SSCP name of one of my remote VTAMs, Netmaster comes back with

START ROUTE fmr0g d net,id=vtam                      
N13104 UNABLE TO ROUTE COMMAND, FMR0G NOT CONNECTED. 

Is there a way to leverage the SSCP names of my remote VTAMs, instead of having to start a LINK to each target? 

I'm able to start a link using the VTAM ACB name of the remote Netmaster and then issue a ROUTE command to that LINK name. However, I was wondering if there was an easier way instead of always having to start a link.

 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

 

The syntax for the ROUTE using the SSCP parameter would be ROUTE SSCP=fmr0g d net,id=vtam  

 

To use the ROUTE command the 2 regions have to be LINKED before the using the ROUTE SSCP command.

We need a LINK to the region before we can ROUTE the command.

Again, you could create a small NCL which would LINK the regions. This way the LINKS are established when you require them
