When an Advanced Program-to-Program (APPC) application that is running on an IBM mainframe tries to invoke an APPC application that is running on a Host Integration Server 2006 system, the SNA Server service logs an event 17 warning message that resembles the following:
Event ID: 17
Note The last two bytes of the sense data vary depending on the BIND request unit that the IBM mainframe sends. The last two bytes of the sense data point to the hexadecimal offset of the fully qualified primary logical unit (PLU) name.
The SNA Server service also sends a BIND –RSP response unit to the IBM mainframe that contains the IBM sense data that appears in the event 17 warning.
When you are using an IP-DLC connection, you must define remote APPC LUs on a Peer connection, as described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
939193The SNA Server service cannot associate the remote APPC LU that is defined on the Peer IP-DLC connection with a dependent APPC LU that is defined on a Host IP-DLC connection when the SNA Server service processes an incoming BIND request. The SNA Server service rejects the incoming BIND request because an association between the local APPC LU and the remote APPC LU cannot be established. Therefore, the BIND –RSP response and the event 17 warning occur.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
After you apply this hotfix, you can use the Snacfg.exe command-line configuration utility to associate the remote APPC LU with the Host IP-DLC connection. When the remote APPC LU is associated with the Host IP-DLC connection, the SNA Server service can successfully process incoming BIND requests over IP-DLC connections by using dependent APPC LUs.
Commands in the Snacfg.exe command prompt utilityThe following is a list of the commands in the Snacfg.exe command prompt utility. You can use these commands to create and to assign connections to remote LUs.
