Answer:

After a transfer is complete, how is it possible to tell when Encryption Algorithm was used for a particular transfer?

Answer: 

  1. These instructions may be used for CA XCOM for Windows, UNIX and LINUX.

  2. Specify XCOM_SHOW_CIPHER=YES in the xcom.glb file.

  3. Make sure that the EXPIRATION_TIME parameter is set high enough to allow you to view queue items in the queue after the transfer is complete. Set a higher value if required. This parameter is specified in seconds.

  4. Stop and start xcomd to reload the global parameter settings.

  5. View the list of all the active transfers from the command line with:
    xcomqm -La
  6. Note the transfer id number for the transfer you are interested in.

  7. Display the queue detailed information
             xcomqm -Dnnnn
    where nnnn is the tid number displayed by xcomqm ?La
  8. Restore xcom.glb parameters to their initial values 

  9. Stop and start xcomd to reload the global parameter settings.
