3270 LU Assignments to Workstations Aren't Saved Properly

Article ID: 169485

Article Last Modified on 6/29/2004



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SNA Server 4.0
  • Microsoft SNA Server 3.0 Service Pack 4



This article was previously published under Q169485


SYMPTOMS

When you assign, delete or add 3270 LUs (or pooled LUs) to workstations, the changes may fail to be saved, or may cause other workstation assignments to unexpectedly change. This problem can occur when you use SNA Server Manager or the command-line Snacfg.exe tool.

CAUSE

Workstation records (new to SNA Server 3.0) are stored as extended records in the SNA Server configuration file. The method of storing LU assignments to workstations failed to properly accommodate the assignment of pooled 3270 LUs, or if the same 3270 LU is assigned to more than one workstation.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server version 3.0 and 3.0 Service Pack 1. This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack.
