Abstract

Hardware, Virtual Telecommunications Access Method (VTAM) and Network Control Program (NCP) information is required concerning resources in a Systems Network Architecture (SNA) network attached through NCPs in order to initialize the INFORMATION/MANAGEMENT database with configuration records. The only method of gathering this information was to manually read the NCP STAGE 1 source deck which was extremely time consuming and error-prone because of the number of NCPs in the network and the associated resources defined to each NCP as well as the format of the NCP STAGE 1 source deck and the translation of information from NCP format to INFORMATION MANAGEMENT format.
