Answers for all posts (thanks!):
Chris: There are no errors on the target system. Authority seems not
to be an issue.
Michael: Yes. The mode descriptions are the same.
And I guess I am not surprised by those findings since the SAVSYS on the
production side would have copied everything to the development side.
Rob: Hmmm. The target system descriptions weren't in the directory or
routing entries (since they were clones of the production system) and,
more interesting, there aren't any *ANY entries for the development
partition in the production side or vise a versa, yet the production
side is still "finding" the development side.
I used CRTCTLAPPC when I created the controller description and it is
identical, except the object name and description, to the controller on
the production side. If I vary off the controller on the production
side I can no longer pass through to development so I know I have the
right controller. On the development side the device description is
created automatically under the controller I created so I think I have
that correct as well.
Those SNA error codes are fun, eh?
Did you verify CFGDSTSRV options 1 & 2?
Does WRKDIRE have a valid *ANY entry for the opposite system on each lpar?
You could try deleting the sna controller and device and see if they
autocreate. I've done that.
