MIMIX will track both the current and historical status of secure communications based on connection attempts.
  • Current - Status of the current communication mode for the system. This status reflects the result of the most recent secure communication attempt involving this system.
  • Historical – Status reflects the ‘worst case’ current status that has occurred since the last time the Historical status was reset using WRKSYS option 17. When the historical status changes to non-optimal, a notification will be created that alerts you and activate any subscriptions. This notification is intended to alert you if communication returns to a non-secure connection or if an effort to securely connect fails completely.
When MIMIX reports the current or historical communication mode, the possible values have the following result:
  • The value *SECURED indicates that communications were secured.
  • The value *UNSECURED indicatesthat communications were unsecured and that secured communications were not requested.
  • The value *UNSECWARN indicates that communications were run as Unsecured because an attempt to run as Secured failed. The Communication mode (CMNMODE) policy allows for Unsecured communications when secure connections fail.
  • The value *FAILED indicates that secure communication failed, and unsecure communications were not allowed by policy.
  • The value *UNKNOWN indicates the status cannot be determined due to an error or communication issue.

Resetting the historical communication status

Do the following from the management system:
  1. From the MIMIX Intermediate Main Menu, select option 2 (Work with Systems) and press Enter. You can optionally use the Work with Systems (WRKSYS) command.
  2. The Work with Systems display appears. Type 17 (Reset hist. comm. status) to reset the historical communication mode status of the selected system definition and press Enter.
    Note: The jobs running with unsecure communications must be restarted to ensure they are using secure connections.
