PI91812: CICS STUB ALWAYS USES THE PORT NUMBER CONFIGURED IN THE TRANSPORT

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • It is not possible to start the CICS stub on a port number other
    than the one configured in the transport.
    Starting a stub can fail with JVM bind errors if the port number
    is already in use.
    
    The Library Manager configuration for CICS IPIC Stub Server Port
    does not have any effect on the port used by the stub.
    If the port is already in use, the stub cannot be started.  It
    is assumed that a value of zero allows a random ephemeral port
    to be used.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users of Rational Integration Tester virtualizing more that  *
    * one CICS application simultaneously.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When starting a second virtual service against a different   *
    * CICS server, users may encounter a bind error due to port    *
    * conflicts which would prevent the stub from being available. *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *

Problem conclusion

  • Rational Integration Tester 9.2.0 now uses different ports for
    the virtualization of different CICS servers.
