I was at a customer last night that had two systems. I upgraded one of their
systems last night from a 9406-520 to a Power6 520. The old system didn't
have client access. I installed Client Access and the license keys on the
new system. I started Host Servers for *SIGNON and *SRVMAP. I started TCP
Server *TELNET, but I still couldn't connect via Client Access.
So, I tried to connect with Client Access to their other system, and that
worked fine. I then tried to Telnet (from my working Client Access session)
from the working system to the new system, and that didn't work. Now, here
is where the confusion comes in. I went to the Console (LAN CONSOLE) for
each machine, and I could telnet from one system to another, and I could
telnet on the console of the new system to itself. So, telnet is working.
I made sure QAUTOVRT was set high enough to create virtual devices, and I
had QAUTOCFG on. Telnet is working from above, but I can't telnet from
another system's client access session to the new system, and I can't
connect using Client Access to the new system.
The system is running V6R1 with the latest cumulative package. I am running
Client Access 6.1 on my pc. Anyone seen this before? Why would telnet work
from the other systems Console but not from another systems client access
session? I am not using named devices on the Client Access sessions.
