Consider the following scenario:
In this scenario, the APPC application or the CPI-C application may stop responding (hang) as soon as the transactions are initiated.
Note This problem may also occur when you use Host Integration Server 2004 or Host Integration Server 2006.
This problem occurs because the SNA Server service (Snaservr.exe) incorrectly handles the second APPC session request that is received while the first APPC session request is being processed. This problem occurs only when the Supports dynamic remote APPC LU definition option is enabled on the connection on which the APPC logical units (LUs) are defined in SNA Manager.
This problem does not occur if explicitly defined remote APPC LUs are being used.

To work around this problem, disable the Supports dynamic remote APPC LU definition option in the connection properties in SNA Manager for the connections that use APPC LUs. By default, for connections that use the IP-DLC link service, the Supports dynamic remote APPC LU definition option is enabled.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
If dependent Local APPC LUs are being used in a scenario similar to the one described here, you will also have to use the SNACFG command-prompt utility to assign the remote APPC LUs to the IP-DLC "Host system" connection that the dependent Local APPC LUs are using.

947858If the remote APPC LUs are not manually assigned to the IP-DLC "Host system" connection by using Snacfg.exe, the SNA Server service will dynamically create remote APPC LUs for the APPC session requests. This occurs even though the remote APPC LUs are explicitly defined in the Host Integration Server configuration.
