Problem conclusion

  • Below new functions are added to z/OSMF Sysplex Management by
    this APAR:
    1. Sysplex Management task is enhanced to allow modifying
    sysplex resources from graphic or table view, such as couple
    data sets, physical and logical status of channel paths to CFs
    and coupling facility structures.
    (1) You can switch an alternate couple data set to primary,
        set alternate couple data set for an primary couple data
    set.
    (2) You can set physical or logical path online or offline on
        the channel paths between systems and CFs.
    (3) You can prepare for disruptive maintenance or restore after
        disruptive maintenance, start or stop maintenance mode for a
    CF.
    (4) You can reallocate all structures in a sysplex, start or
        stop rebuild, start or stop duplexing a structure or all
        structures on a CF.
    (5) You can view action history of a sysplex in Commands Log
    table,
        and manage commands log in Commands Log table.
    
    2. Sysplex Management task is also enhanced to allow viewing
       sysplex resources more easily, including:
    (1) You can find menu actions of graphic objects more easily and
    
       launch to different views thru default links.
    (2) You can view all warning information of a Sysplex in a
       warning center.
    (3) You can view CF path physical and logical status on CF
       Connectivity Details graphic view and warning icon is
    displayed
       when CF path is offline.
    (4) The CF connectivity Details view is changed to map physical
       CF links to adapter/port.
    (5) The CF connectivity Details view is changed to separate CFs
       to different CPC graphic objects.
    (6) The structure view is changed to display encryption status
    of
       a structure.
