Alternatives to HP SNA Server for OpenVMS Integrity servers

September 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

HP SNA Server for OpenVMS Alpha (SNA Server) is a layered software product that allows appropriately configured OpenVMS Alpha or VAX systems to be a part of IBM Systems Network Architecture (SNA) network. After installing the SNA Server and one or more SNA access routines, you can perform the following functions:

• Access IBM application programs or other system resources
• Act as 3270 display station
• Exchange data files and documents with an IBM host
• Implement distributed application programs that run between the OpenVMS Alpha and IBM systems The HP SNA Server for OpenVMS will not be ported on to Integrity servers. However, you can use the following communication options for an OpenVMS Integrity server system to become a part of IBM SNA network:
• HP SNA Access Server for Windows (Access Server)
• HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Synchronous Transport (ST)
• HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Channel Transport (CT)
• Mainframe Gateway for OpenVMS (MGO)

You can also choose to continue to run HP SNA Server for OpenVMS Alpha or VAX systems and move the applications on to Integrity servers. The applications can access the SNA Server through DECnet or TCP/IP. This solution can be used only if you would like to retain the existing Alpha or VAX systems to run the SNA Server.
