Simple green-screen 'Readiness' command for PowerHA
Provide an OS/400 command that will check the readiness of a PowerHA configuration and return a 'ready' or 'not ready/attention' response.
Monitoring a PowerHA mirroring configuration is a manual process using green-screen or Web Navigator. Messages are posted if action is required, but there is no easy way to 'prove' that everything is working normally. This is something we have been asked by management at several customers. Lab Services provides a readiness command in their CopyToolkit. Running the command provides a one line summary stating that the configuration is 'switch ready'. Having this ability in PowerHA would not only be helpful for operators, but could provide an audit point to management.
