110 RACF Remote Sharing Facility over TCP/IP
5.1.2 TARGET commands (nodes)
TARGET either establishes the characteristics of the RACF address space in a system, or
provides you with tools to list specifics of that RACF address.
Make sure the nodes that you expect are DEFINED and OPERATIVE ACTIVE. The TARGET
NODE LIST command allows you to see the connections and listener tasks as well as their
states. With RRSF over TCP/IP, you have the opportunity to match your NODE names to the
SYSPLEXes they service. The individual SYSTEM names match the SYSNAMES under the
related NODE names. For single system NODES, generally use the MONOPLEX name as
the NODE name. Poorly chosen node names can affect the expansion or addition of new
SYSTEMS to that node.
The TARGET LISTPROTOCOL command lists the current operational and protocol attributes
of one or more nodes and lists the protocol name of each listed node. It is useful if you want to
list protocol attributes with summary information for each remote node.
In an MSN, as shown in Example 5-3, the system from which the #TARGET LISTP is issued
should be in OPERATIVE ACTIVE state 1. Other systems at that node only need to be in the
DEFINED state 2. Remember, check the REMOTE nodes relative to each LOCAL node.
Example 5-3 TARGET LISTP output
#TARGET LISTP
IRRM009I (#) REMOTE RRSF NODE PLEX76 PROTOCOL TCP IS IN THE OPERATIVE
875
ACTIVE STATE.
IRRM009I (#) REMOTE RRSF NODE PLEX81 SYSNAME SC80 PROTOCOL TCP IS IN
THE DEFINED STATE. 2
IRRM009I (#) REMOTE RRSF NODE PLEX81 SYSNAME SC81 PROTOCOL TCP (MAIN)
IS IN THE OPERATIVE ACTIVE STATE. 1
IRRM009I (#) LOCAL RRSF NODE PLEX75 SYSNAME SC74 IS IN THE OPERATIVE
ACTIVE STATE.
IRRM091I (#) - LOCAL NODE TCP LISTENER IS ACTIVE.
IRRM009I (#) LOCAL RRSF NODE PLEX75 SYSNAME SC75 (MAIN) IS IN THE
DEFINED STATE.
In Example 5-4, the NODE name is PLEX81, which is composed of three systems:
ADCD (DEFINED STATE)
SC80 (the system where you issued the command)
SC81, the MAIN for this NODE
Example 5-4 Display for PLEX81
IRRM009I (#) LOCAL RRSF NODE PLEX81 SYSNAME ADCD IS IN THE DEFINED
STATE2.
IRRM009I (#) LOCAL RRSF NODE PLEX81 SYSNAME SC80 IS IN THE OPERATIVE
ACTIVE STATE. 1
IRRM091I (#) - LOCAL NODE APPC LISTENER IS ACTIVE.
IRRM091I (#) - LOCAL NODE TCP LISTENER IS ACTIVE.
IRRM009I (#) LOCAL RRSF NODE PLEX81 SYSNAME SC81 (MAIN) IS IN THE
DEFINED STATE.2
Tip: When you issue TARGET as an operator command, remember to use the CPF. The
example environment uses # as the prefix, but if not set it defaults to RACF. You can use
the D OPDATA command to see what is registered.
