Create a New LU 2.0 Command Called NODEID

       This article describes a new command that has been
created for applications using High Level Application Programming
Interface (HLAPPI).  The new command allows for better autonomy for
the PC communicating with the host and reduces the amount of
administration work needed for the central offices.

      During the setup procedures of a normal HLAPPI application the
host nodeid with which communication will take place must be
identified.  All HLAPPI applications must have a high-level
programming language that drives the execution sequence during the
logon and the logoff processes.  In order to logon to a host system,
the nodeid desired needs to be entered on the VTAM* screen.  This
nodeid is also needed during the setup procedures.  No command
existed in the existing script language used by OfficeVision*/2
(OV/2) V1, a HLAPPI application, that allowed the use of the nodeid
specified during setup.  If multiple gateways are needed, a generic
script language file could not be created, because the nodeid had to
be changed both during the setup procedures and in the script file.
A knowledgeable person had to change the nodeid in each script file
used by a HLAPPI application for the host communication.

      A new command has been created that allows the administrator to
generically use the nodeid specified during setup during the physical
LU 2.0 logon to the host.  The command is used in the following
syntax:
