Error description

  • VisualAge Generator V4.5
    -----------------------------
    Secure FTP Client created by APAR PK56102 will be disabled since
    a new SSL certificate is required.
    
    Description from PK56102:
    For security purposes customer has requested that the transfer
    of generated COBOL programs from Vagen to z/OS host be performed
    using Secure FTP rather than standard FTP.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • New SSL certificate has disable the secure FTP client for the
    prep phase
    of generation.
    
    In 2007, Customer wanted to do encrypted ftp for the prep phase
    of the
    generation. They received a secure FTP client from IBM VAGen
    Support.
    This is the client that is being disabled by the new SSL
    Refer to PMR 15374,005,000 for the orginal secure FTP client.
     LOCAL FIX:
    Change the java run statement for VGFTPS class to consider the
    key store
     file built by client. This can be done by adding the
     -Djavax.net.ssl.tru stStore=<jks file path-name>
     parameter to java command.
    The basic problem was that the new CA based on X.509 was not
    considered
    by the Java FTPS routine. So a Java Key Store file was built for
    new
    certificate and declared for Java as a trusted CA.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

  • Made changes to Java command for running VGFTPS class in efksnd
    file to
    consider the jks file:
      ADDRESS CMD 'java -Djavax.net.ssl.tru stStore=<jks file path>
    -cp
    $CLASSPATH;.\VGFTPS.jar com.ibm.net.ftps.VGFTPS "' ||
    trnfilename || '"'
