Question:

 

-Why an unknown CA Top Secret CPF NODE is displayed when I issue a TSS MODIFY STATUS(CPF)? 
 
-How can I get rid of all record in the CA Top Secret CPF recovery file for that node?
 

 

Answer: 

 

 

 

-The CA Top Secret TSS MODIFY STATUS(CPF) could display data as it follows:
 
TSS9661I CA Top Secret CPF Status 
CPF(ON) CPFWAIT(NO) CPFTARGET(LOCAL) 
CPFRCVUND(YES) CPFrecfl(000%) CPFLISTMULT(NO) 
CPFAUTOUID(NO) CPFAUTOGID(NO) 
CPFNODE(NODE#01)     Static Status(ACTIVE,NOSPOOL) 
CPFNODE(NODE#02)     Static Status(ACTIVE,NOSPOOL) 
CPFNODE(NODE#XX)          Status(INACTIVE,SPOOL,RETRY) 
TSS9070I OKAY 
 
NODEXX being the unknown node.
 
The CA Top Secret CPF control options could be: 
 
CPF(ON) 
CPFNODES(NODE#01,NODE#02)
CPFRCVUND(NO) 
CPFWAIT(NO) 
CPFTARGET(LOCAL)
 
Only NODE#01 and NODE#02 are defined in the TSSPARM0 member which contains the CA Top Secret control options.
 
Note in the output of the CA Top Secret TSS MODIFY STATUS(CPF) for the node NODE#XX, the keyword "Static" is missing.
It means this node is defined to CA Top Secret NDT table which is the Node Description Table.
CA Top Secret nodes can be defined in either the TSSPARM0 member or in the NDT, when they are defined in the TSSPARM0 they are called "Static node",
when they are defined in the NDT, they are called "Dynamic node", but no type is displayed in this case.
 
To remove a node from the CA Top Secret NDT, you have to enter the following command:
 
TSS REM(NDT)  CPFSYSID(SYSA) CPFNODE(NODE#XX)
 
To know what the CPFSYSID is, you have to enter the following command:
 
TSS LIS(NDT) CPFSYSID(*), it will list all CPFSYSID and you will be able to find which one you are interested in to remove the node. 
 
 
-To remove all record in the CA Top Secret CPF recovery file for that node NODE#XX, you have to enter the following command:
 
TSS REMOVE(*CPFRECV) CPFNODE(NODE#XX)
