Creating an SNA Gateway Configuration

The SNA Gateway components of Services Builder for CICS must be configured using the SNA Gateway Configuration property pages for a new SNA system to become operational.

These configuration steps, which are handled in MCS, under Products, Services Builder for CICS, assume that you have already added a run-time server to the server list.

To create an SNA Gateway configuration

    The Configuration window appears in the right pane with the Systems page displayed.

  3. Click the SNA Gateway Configuration button at the bottom of the Systems page.

    The five-tabbed SNA Gateway Configuration dialog box displays. You must provide information for each component to create an SNA Gateway configuration.

  4. Click each tab: Ports, Links, Partner LUs, Local LUs, or Modes, depending on which components you want to configure.

    Depending on your selection, a list of all the configured ports, links, partner LUs, local LUs, or modes displays.
