Error description

  • The KDE_TRANSPORT POOL: keyword does not permit configuration of
    socket port pools on the LOOPBACK device. To accommodate this ,
    a new environment variable, KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL , can be used to
    configure a pool of available ports associated with the
    loopback device from which all Tivoli Monitoring socket
    requests are satisfied.  The semantics of KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL are
    the same as the KDE_TRANSPORT POOL: keyword as it applied to
    the loopback device but the syntax differs. The usage is
    KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL=NNNNN-KKKKK , where NNNNN is the start of the
    port pool range, KKKKK is the end of the port pool range, and
    KKKKK - NNNNN <= 1024 .  KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL resides in the same
    Tivoli product configuration file as does KDE_TRANSPORT.
    

Local fix

  • n/a
    

Problem summary

  • Tivoli Monitoring configuration of socket port pools is not
    permitted on the LOOPBACK device.
    
    The Tivoli Monitoring KDE_TRANSPORT environment variable 'POOL:'
     keyword does not permit configuration of socket port pools on
    the LOOPBACK device.
    
    In order for this APAR to be properly implemented in your
    environment, a new environment variable has been added.  See the
    "Install Actions" section of the APAR conclusion for more
    details.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Install Actions:
    Code has been added to support a new Tivoli Monitoring
    environment variable, KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL.  KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL can
    be used to configure a pool of available ports associated with
    the loopback device from which all Tivoli Monitoring socket
    requests are satisfied.
    
    The semantics of KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL are the same as the
    KDE_TRANSPORT environment variable 'POOL:' keyword as it applied
    to the loopback device but the syntax differs. The usage is
    KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL=NNNNN-KKKKK , where NNNNN is the start of the
    port pool range, KKKKK is the end of the port pool range, and
    KKKKK - NNNNN &lt;= 1024 .  KDE_LOOPBACK_POOL resides in the
    same Tivoli product configuration file as does KDE_TRANSPORT.
