Step 11: Associating a 3270 LU with a User

When a user runs the SNA Server 3270 Applet a 3270 LU is required in order to establish a session with the host system. This 3270 LU may come from a pool of 3270 LUs or may be associated with the user. We will describe the latter case, associating a 3270 LU with a user.

  1. If the user has not yet been configured in SNA Server then see the second part of Step 9 above.
  2. In the Connections folder select the connection and then the 3270 LU which you wish to assign to a configured user.
  3. Whilst selecting the 3270 LU with the mouse pointer, click the right mouse button and select Assign To followed by User and then select the required user.
  4. In the Configured Users folder select the same user. The newly assigned 3270 LU should appear .


Now go to the File menu and select Save Configuration. It is not necessary to restart the SNA Server service to activate a new User configuration.

When the specified user starts the SNA Server 3270 Applet a session will be established using the 3270 LU associated with the user.
