Accommodating new 3270 servers

When you install a voice application that includes a 3270 server, you might want to change the way 3270 terminal sessions are configured. If not enough sessions are available for the new server, you might want to configure additional sessions or reconfigure any excess sessions, and assign them to the new server.

Configuring additional sessions

If the number of existing terminal sessions cannot support an additional server, review the information that is given in How many sessions?. This information tells you how many sessions Blueworx Voice Response can support. When you have read How many sessions?, follow the instructions that are given in Configuring a 3270 session.

Reconfiguring 3270 sessions

Use this procedure to reassign a 3270 terminal session to a different 3270 server. To configure additional sessions for use by the server, use the procedure that is given in Configuring a 3270 session.

Before you can reconfigure the session, ensure that the voice application developer has defined the 3270 server and that you know the name of the server.

Session reconfiguration that uses this procedure is not dynamic. You must stop Blueworx Voice Response and start it again before the voice application can use the reconfigured session. You can reconfigure a session dynamically by using the procedure that is given in "Managing 3270 Sessions" in the Blueworx Voice Response for AIX: Managing and Monitoring the System information.

  1. From the Welcome window, select Configuration —> 3270 Session Configuration
  2. Selecting a session: Open the session (or sessions) you want to configure for use by the new server.

    The system displays information about each session in the 3270 Session Update window. If you opened multiple sessions, the windows are stacked on top of each other.

  3. Reassigning a session: Click Server Name...

    The system lists all 3270 servers.

  4. Click the server that is to use this session.
  5. Click OK.

    The system displays the 3270 Session Update window. The name of the new server is displayed.

  6. Click OK.

The next time you start Blueworx Voice Response, the session is assigned to the new server.
