Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z, the Host Properties tab in
    the Host Connect
    Editor displays a certificate store that is no
    longer used to manage the certificates being used to establish a
    secure connection to the TN3270 server.
    The user interface also allows for import and refresh of the
    certificate store.
    In order to avoid confusion, the User Interface needs to be
    changed to conform with the fact
    that we are now requiring the .p12 certificate file because the
    underlying HABeans had been changed to require it that way.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED: Users who need to define secure connections to a
    TN3270 server using the Host Connect Editor
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The Host Properties tab in the Host Connect
    Editor displays a certificate store that is no
    longer used to manage the certificates being used to establish a
    secure connection to the TN3270 server.
    The user interface also allows for import and refresh of the
    certificate store.
    
    Problem Resolution: Host Connect now relies on the use of .p12
    files to manage certificates used to establish secure
    connections to the server; therefore, the references to the
    previously used certificate store information has been removed
    from the Host Properties user interface.
    
    Also, the buttons for importing to and refreshing the display of
    that certificate store have also been removed.
    
    This APAR is being closed FIN with concurrence from the
    submitting customer. This means that a fix to this APAR is
    expected to be delivered from IBM in a release which is being
    developed at the time that the APAR was closed. The latest
    release of the product to exit development at the time this
    APAR was closed was: Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.
