Issue:

When using the NDS (Network Delivery Services) method to communicate between two CA Workload Automation ESP Edition Master subsystems, the tracking data is not posted to the original node.  ESP initialization statement ISCOPT NETWORK SENDNET(ORIGNODE) is used.

 

Environment:  

CA Workload Automation ESP Edition release 11.4

 

Cause: 

If ISCOPT initialization parameter specifies NETWORK SENDNET(ORIGNODE), and a NETDEST statement describing the ESP Master subsystem does not specify the network destination, then CA WA ESP cannot determine the originating node.

 

Resolution:

The NETDEST initialization parameter/command needs to be defined with SYSPLEX, or XCFGROUP, JESNODE, and SYSID parameters.  These are necessary when ISCOPT NETWORK SENDNET(ORIGNODE) is in use.  

Example: NETDEST ADD NETNODE(espm_newyork) SYSPLEX(newyork) JESNODE(nyc) SYSID(espm_nyc)

Note: If PTF RO88003 is applied, then the JESNODE parameter is no longer required.  ESP will set JESNODE automatically.
