Connect Direct Unix and Windows: alternate IP addresses, round robin and non-round robin, controls

Many shops have and participate in disaster recovery exercises.  We want to indicate that a particular alt comm IP not be used unless we manually update a configuration file or through Control Center.  Currently Connect Direct Unix and Windows do not have this functionality.  Also want to be able to "round robin" a snode that has a primary and alt comm IP defined.  My understanding is this is available on CD z/OS.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have tried to reach out seeking additional details over the last several months, but unfortunately have not received a response. Because of that I must assume that you no longer require this functionality. Because of that I will decline and close this request. Please don't hesitate to use the tool if you have additional enhancement you would like us to explore.

    Thanks,

    Chris Sanders
