Control Unit Image Number Not Supported on ESCON

Article ID: 172814

Article Last Modified on 7/15/2004



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SNA Server 2.1

  • Microsoft SNA Server 4.0



This article was previously published under Q172814


SYMPTOMS

There is no Control Unit Image Number support for ESCON-type channel connections.

CAUSE

SNA Server was not originally written to provide direct support for ESCON connections.

RESOLUTION

A Control Unit Image Number field has been added to connections using a channel-type link service. The field is found on the Address tab of the connection. It is an integer with a default value of 0 and a range of 0- 0xF. The Control Unit Image Number is ignored when using Bus&Tag channel- type links.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server versions 3.0 and 3.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack.
