When I specify both the IP address AND a port number on the PROTOCOL statement of my CCI parms,
I receive a “CAS9216E - Invalid command - bad variable length or format when ENF attempts to start CCI.”
If I specify ONLY an IP address OR a port number, CCI starts successfully.
Netparm data on the GATEWAY, NODE, and PROTOCOL control options is restricted to 32 characters. Specifying both the IP address and port number exceeded that value.
CA Common Services for z/OS r14.1 starting CCI from ENF
· You can code only the IP address or the port number on the NETPARM statement to stay under the 32 character limit
· If you have a need to include parms that are more than 32 characters, you can:
· Update the parms directly in the PROC
· Use the NODEDATA control option
• Use the NETPARM DD statement to define the quantity of characters that you require.
Refer to the netparm description found under the section labelled PROTOCOL(protocol,netparm,retry,sysid,maxru,start/stop) included within the CA Common Services Documentation wiki.
