The "Allow Link Service to be distributed" option for the Polaris Bus and Tag channel adapter and the ESCON channel adapter is not available.


The fix was to add the "Allow Link Service to be distributed" option in the link service config dll.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server, versions 3.0 and 3.0 SP1. A supported fix is now available, but has not been fully regression-tested and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem. Unless you are severely impacted by this specific problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Service Pack that contains this fix. Contact Microsoft Product Support Services for more information.
