ACF2 - z/OS Top Secret Common Services

Issue/Introduction

Coding the SMP/E ORDERSERVER control statement URL statement: url="https://192.19.232.182/receiveorder"  in the ORDERSERVER XML text fails. Question pertains to ACF2, Top Secret and RACF.

Symptoms: running batch Internet Service Retrieval job using url="https://141.202.0.16/receiveorder" rather than url="https://eapi.broadcom.com/receiveorder" and getting:
GIM69195S ** RECEIVE PROCESSING HAS FAILED. THE SERVER AT https://141.202.0.16/receiveorder DETECTED AN ERROR: 404 - Not Found.

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

When using Internet Service Retrieval the SMP/E ORDERSERVER control statement URL cannot specify the ip address as part of the URL. The host (eapi.broadcom.com (http://eapi.broadcom.com/) ) is what should be part of the URL and sites can allow the ip address on the firewall side to allow the ip from customer side.
