Updating MCS Server Information for Your Runtime Service

MCS server information (IP address and port number) is used both by the MCS service agent and by the designer. By default, the runtime engine communicates with MCS through the MCS service agent using port 8086. When you install the Runtime Service, both the service agent and the communication settings are automatically installed and configured on the run-time computer. However, you can, when needed, reconfigure the port and IP address of the management server.

Note If you have the designer installed, you can modify the MCS server settings through the designer interface (from the Tools menu, choose Options, then from the Publishing page, enter the correct MCS configuration settings).
To manually update MCS server information
  1. On the runtime computer, open install_directory\Attachmate\EAI\CICSTaskDesigner\CICSToolsOptions.properties.

  2. Replace the bracketed values for the MCS server IP address (CICSConnector.ip) and Web server port number (CICSConnector.port) with the correct information.

  3. Open install_directory/Attachmate/EAI/Common/mcs/agent.properties, and replace the address of the MCS server with the new location, for example:


  4. In Windows, restart the Runtime Service and the MCS service agent, which run as Windows services.


    In UNIX, restart install_directory/Attachmate/EAI/CICSServer/cicsruntime.sh and install_directory/Attachmate/EAI/Common/mcs/mcsagent.sh.
