Enhance remote journaling service with restart option

The remote journaling service has no option on the STRTCPSVR or ENDTCPSVR command. This is also not an option in the new navigator to stop/start/restart the remote journaling service.


In addition to no stop/start/restart options. When changing the remote journaling certificate, within DCM, the new certificate is not presented by the rmtjournal-ssl service until the service is restarted manually via killing all jobs or IPLing the system. I would like to see the process updated to recycle the rmt-journal-ssl service when a new certificate is assigned in DCM. This behavior is seen in every other TCP service on the IBMi: TELNET, FTP, ODBC, etc..

    IBM will use this Idea as input to planning, but no commitment is made or implied. This Idea will be updated in the future if IBM implements it.
