Step 8: Configuring Remote LUs

Unlike Local LUs, Remote LUs are assigned to a connection which will be used to communicate with it.

  1. Under the SNA Servers folder select the local Server which you have just configured in Steps 1 and 2 above.
  2. In the Insert menu select APPC and then Remote LU at which point the Remote APPC LU Properties dialog box should appear.
  3. Select the Connection over which this Remote LU will be used. This will be the Connection configured in Step 3.
  4. Enter the LU Alias, this name is automatically duplicated for the LU Name and Uninterpreted Name. This LU Name should match the definition of the LU as it exists on the remote system, in this case in the form of a VTAM APPL definition on the host system.
  5. Select the Network Name field, this will cause the Network Name to be automatically set to the Network Name of the Remote Node Name.


Now select the Options tab in the Remote APPC LU Properties dialog box.


To complete the configuration of the Remote LU click on the OK button.
