FIX: Session Integrator does not allow the "LogicalUnitName" property to be included in TN3270 connections

In Microsoft Host Integration Server 2009, Session Integrator does not allow connection strings for TN3270 connections to include the LogicalUnitName property.

For example, assume that you run the following statement:
sessionconnectiondisplay scd = new sessionconnectiondisplay() ...scd.LogicalUnitName = "LUname"...Sessiondisplay sd = new sessiondisplay()sd.connect(scd)
After you do this, the "LUname" data of the LogicalUnitName property is not passed to COM3270. Therefore, the TN3270 connection does not locate a specific LU or a Pool on the host or on the server that is running Host Integration Server.

Additionally, you can determine whether the connection string is invalid by running the following statement:
Sessiondisplay sd = new sessiondisplay()sd.connect ("instructions;LOGICALUNITNAME="LUname";instructions")
