Abstract:After applying EPC845, using host monitor will show 'Connect to LANSA System' prompt and connection will fail

Description:

After applying EPC845 to LANSA V11 SP5, you may experience a situation whereby starting the host monitor or performing an checkin or checkout will show the 'Connect to LANSA System' screen. However, even if you put in the correct connection information for user and password, the connection will fail.

This can occur if you run a system initialization with the Remote System in a different case to the LU Name defined as a host in the LANSA Communications Administrator.

For example, if you had a host defined in the LANSA Communications Administrator with DCXPGMLIB (uppercase) as the Partner LU Name and you performed a system initialization (after applying EPC845) using the Remote System dcxpgmlib (lowercase), then you would generate the connect to master LANSA system dialog and subsequent connection failure.

Solution:

This is scheduled to be fixed in the next V11 SP5 EPC. In the meantime, there are 2 ways of resolving the issue

  1. Create new host in the LANSA Communications administrator with a Partner LU Name that matches the case of the Remote System shown in the Connect to LANSA System dialog.
  2. Perform a system init and specify the remote host in the same case as the LU Name defined for this host in the LANSA Communications Administrator.
