No option to create DLC connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Aloha,

    I'm very new to HIS (2010) - so please be gentle. I am told by the mainframe people I need to create a DLC connection. My options on the server are DEMO SDLC Link Service, Distributed Link Service and IP-DLC Link service. I was working with a man on another island (before he went on vacation) who already has this working. He said like me - he had no DLC option. He said he had to do something special for the DLC option to appear, but at the time could not remember what he had to do.

    Any help is appreciate.

  • Honestly, there has not been much demand for a 64-bit version of DLC. It has come up occasionally, but those customers were OK with staying on 32-bit for the HIS Servers or they were ready to move forward with IP-DLC and IBM Enterprise Extender.

    IBM is pushing customers away from DLC as well. They are pushing their customers to IP-based solutions that use Enterprise Extender. This is clearly the direction that most IBM environments are moving to so that is the direction we are going with HIS.
