Use C:D Manager to correlate SNODE and PNODE to IP addresses in Netmaster

NetMaster File Transfer Management


This site runs most of their file transfer processing through C:D. While the File Transfer Management product is activated, it is not currently being utilized. 
One issue with C:D is that there is currently a need to manually correlate the IP addresses of tranfers to the C:D SNODE or PNODE.
Does Netmaster offer a way of providing that information automatically?


Release : 12.2


Netmaster File Transfer cannot correlate the IP addresses of transfers to the C:D SNODE and PNODE.

Here's an example of what Netmaster would show:
17.41.13 RFCDEVI8 ID=I01 - NDMFDR: Copy Start Received - PNODE:FDRNDM01 PName:LOOKAT#1 PNum:21708 Step:COPYSTEP SNODE:TPLNDM01 EXIT Ver:  
17.41.13 RFCDEVI8 ID=I02 - NDMFDR: CI  Received - FK:FDRNDM01 21708 LOOKAT#1TPLNDM01 COPYSTEP                                            
17.41.13 RFCDEVI8 ID=S01 - CI  Raising Start Event - FK:FDRNDM01 21708 LOOKAT#1TPLNDM01 COPYSTEP AFTCor:CD20210617224113.733258          
17.41.13 RFCDEVI8 ID=I04 - NDMFDR: CT received - FK:TPLNDM01 21708 LOOKAT#1FDRNDM01 COPYSTEP                                              
17.41.13 RFCDEVI8 ID=X05 - UNMATCHED CT RECEIVED - FK:TPLNDM01 21708 LOOKAT#1FDRNDM01 COPYSTEP                                            
17.41.13 RFCDEVI8 ID=I05 - CT Status set:END - FK:TPLNDM01 21708 LOOKAT#1FDRNDM01 COPYSTEP 

It shows the SNODE and PNODE, but there is no IP address anywhere.

Everything Netmaster File Transfer understands about C:D transfers comes from the C:D  STATISTICs exit, which works in terms of SNODE and PNODE.   SNODE and PNODE are node names,  not IP ADDRESSES.  Once the C:D record arrives via the exit, Netmaster has no way of further manipulating the data to correlate the nodes to IP addresses.
