PAS task uses different TCPIP ports for communications. For example, before the last IPL it was using 1180: BBMXCL94I TCP/IP Communications Started for MVCSMON 188.8.131.52:1180 With the last IPL it started using 1228: BBMXCL94I TCP/IP Communications Started for MVCSMON 184.108.40.206:1228 So the question is how exactly Mainview picks the TCPIP port and what is the best way to have it use a fixed port?
According to BMC development, you can assign a static port for each MainView product (service point is displayed in PLEX view) using BBMPORT member concatenated to //BBIPARM DD in PAS PROC JCL.
Development has a plan to implement an online interface (from MPD panel. User can input the static port per the desired MV product and deploy these as needed).
