Question:

Deploying a product with CA CSM using shared DASD transmission between LPARs but is receiving FTP related failures such as EDC8127I Connection timed out or EDC5111I Permission denied. Why would the deployment need to use FTP if the transmission is based on shared DASD? 

Answer:

FTP is really used in this particular case with  shared DASD. It is not used for transferring files, but it is used for gathering results of gimunzip command execution on a target LPAR.
