IBM® Sterling Connect:Direct® for Microsoft Windows 4.6.0
This document describes maintenance updates for IBM® Sterling Connect:Direct® for Microsoft Windows 4.6.0. It includes information on all product features, including the Server, Requester, Common Utilities, Secure+ and the SDK. Maintenance updates are always cumulative and provided as fix packs or interim fixes (iFixes).

Fix Packs
Fix packs deliver maintenance and updates to an existing product version of IBM Sterling Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows. Fix packs are cumulative and include individual fixes (iFixes) as well as updates added since the previous fix pack and in any earlier fix pack. You only need to apply the latest available fix pack. Fix packs can be downloaded from the IBM Fix Central website at http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/.
Review the Instructions for Applying IBM Sterling Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows Fix Packs (CDWin460FixPackInstructions.pdf) document for details.

Interim Fixes (iFixes)
iFixes or test fixes are provided by IBM support in response to a customer case to address the reported issue. Once a fix has been successfully verified, it will be added to the next fix pack. Fixes are provided as replacement modules built on the latest available fix pack. See fix details for more information.
IMPORTANT: The required fix pack level must be installed prior to applying an fix.
To apply an iFix, follow these steps
1. Verify the information accompanying the fix matches your product, version and fix pack level. Use CD Admin Tool to verify that all requirements are met.
2. Close all Sterling Connect:Direct related user application, such as CD Admin Tool, CD Requester, CD Command Line Interface, etc.
3. Stop the Connect Direct v4.6.00 service.
4. Create a backup of your Sterling Connect:Direct installation folder, typically "C:\Program Files\Sterling Commerce\Connect Direct v4.6.00".
5. An iFix usually come as a zip file. Extract the zip file into a temporary folder. This will create a number of subfolder.
6. Copy only the subfolders that match your installation to your Sterling Connect:Direct installation, typically "C:\Program Files\Sterling Commerce\Connect Direct v4.6.00". Allow existing files to be overwritten.
IMPORTANT: you must exclude the Server\Secure+ folder from copying when Secure+ is not installed, that is you do not have a Server\Secure+ folder in your installation.

7. Restart the Connect Direct v4.6.00 service.
8. Test the fix and provide feedback to IBM support.
It is highly recommended to verify a new fix on a test system before applying it to a production environment.

4.6.00_iFix003: QC18989

Description of Issue: The Connect:Direct for Windows service unexpectedly terminates after encountering message LSFG006I. This error incorrectly occurred when a remote node tried to receive a file in text mode without specifying a record length and record.wrap=Y had been set in the local initialization parameters.

Description of Fix: Added coded to preserve the destination file information when sending as SNODE. Also improved the handling of LSFG006I and similar errors when reading the source file.

Fix Availability Date: 14 April 2011

Description of Fix: Fixed an issue in Select Statistics output of CTRC records, where Src and Dest values for CCode and Msgid were swapped when the local node was receiving the file. Enhanced output of LSST records by adding From, Src File and Dest File fields. Enhanced Select Process output to include Src File and Dest File names during a Copy step.

Fix Availability Date: 13 May 2011

High Impact: N

Reported Severity: 4
4.6.00_iFix005: QC19128

Description of Issue: PNODE dropped the connection after the session was rejected by the remote node, for example when session limits being reached. The remote node reported a network error.

Description of Fix: Updated the PNODE smgr state machine to send a FMH75 to the remote node and close the session gracefully.

Fix Availability Date: 01 June 2011

High Impact: N

Reported Severity: 3
4.6.00_iFix006: QC13829

Description of Issue: Processes using the built-in variable %PRAND occasionally hang in EXEC state after getting LUPC023I, LUPC006I and LSMM012E errors.

Description of Fix: According to the documentation %PRAND is a 6 hex digits pseudo-random number. Occasionally the function to substitute this variable only returned 5 digits, which caused a corrupted TCQ\PRC* file and the errors above. The code has been updated to ensure that the %PRAND value always returns 6 hex digits

Fix Availability Date: 01 June 2011

High Impact: N

Reported Severity: 2
4.6.00_iFix007: QC19330

Description of Issue: An existing process contained a SUBMIT-within-process step specifying additional variables for the subsequent process. When the process file was opened in CD Requester, the variables showed up for the wrong statement or were lost.

Description of Fix: The CD Requester parser incorrectly detected additional statements, for example when the process also contained file names like FILE=my_submit with no surrounding quotes. This caused variables to be added to the wrong statement. The function to detect statement keywords has been updated to resolve the issue.

Fix Availability Date: 30 June 2011

High Impact: N

Reported Severity: 3
4.6.00_iFix008: QC19325

Description of Issue: When a process was redirected by a remote Connect:Direct for z/OS PLEX manager, it did not continue immediately but was scheduled for a later retry using the short retry timer interval.

Description of Issue: A text file is send to a remote node with strip.oneable(yes). If the source file ends with 0x0D-0A-1A, an additional empty record gets appended to the destination file.

Description of Fix: When reading the source file another record was detected following the last CR LF (0x0D-0A). This record only contained 0x1A, which later on got removed by strip.oneable processing. The record become empty, but still was sent to the remote node. Added look-ahead logic to ignore the last record if it only contains 0x1A.

4.6.0.1_iFix001: QC20266

Description of Issue: A process had been submitted earlier with a remote node name, which was not defined in the netmap. After updating the netmap later on, the server rarely crashed.

Description of Fix: The issue only occurred intermittent. Under rare conditions an error handle become invalid while the server was refreshing its internal list of adjacent nodes after a netmap update. Error handling has been updated to avoid a potential access violation.

Fix Availability Date: 02 December 2011

High Impact: Y

Reported Severity: 2
4.6.0.1_iFix002: RTC103839

Description of Fix: Added code to update the current step information in TCQ's shadow copy on the SNODE for steps other than COPY.

Fix Availability Date: 05 January 2012

High Impact: N

Reported Severity: 3
4.6.0.1_iFix003: RTC140740

Description of Issue: The local password is not copied across when using Sterling Control Center to duplicate proxy definitions.

Description of Fix: This is a side effect of the security fix for SR1363712 in Sterling Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows 4.1.00 and later. With the fix in place and an API client requesting a proxy definition, the server no longer returns the real local password to any client, but sends a dummy password instead.

As a result, clients such as Sterling Control Center copy the dummy password across when duplicating the proxy definition.

This new iFix here adds a new initialization parameter "disable.proxy.password.security" allowing to disable the security fix for SR1363712. When set to 'Y', the server returns the real local password again. To ensure backwards compatibility with SR1363712, the default value is 'N' and the server returns a dummy password.

CAUTION: this initialization parameter is security related. It is highly recommend to only set disable.proxy.password.security=Y during the time while duplicating the proxy and return to disable.proxy.password.security=N afterwards.

Fix Availability Date: 25 January 2012

High Impact: N

Reported Severity: 4
4.6.0.1_iFix004: RTC309744

Description of Issue: The server does not report its version correctly to a client.
