Can mdist2 work like before applying APAR:IY56471 (4.1.1-TMF-0010)?
mdist2 works depending on the health_check status that is collected by gateway with epcheck_interval(wgateway <GW>) interval.
Before applying the APAR:IY56471, mdist2 did not attempt distribution if the health_check status shows disconnected.
Eventually, mdist2 completed the distribution immediately without attempt and set the status "UNAVAILABLE" .
After applying the APAR:IY56471 or TMF-4.3.1, this behavior has been changed. mdist2 attempts distribution even if health_check shows disconnected.
After applying the APAR:IZ32378, mdist2 has become to work as before applying APAR:IY56471 with configuration command : "wgateway <GW> set downcall_limit 1".
The default configuration is "wgateway <GW> set downcall_limit 0". mdist2 works always attempts distribution.
This change is made for TMF-4.3.1
