Manually created static or dynamic target definitions and BBI-SS PAS directive plays a major role in connection decision (see AutoConnect affinity factors). A CICS that is not defined to the BBI-SS PAS by a static or dynamic target definition can also connect to an available BBI-SS PAS running in the same LPAR. A BBI-SS PAS directive is optional.
ACONCICS=YES honors the static or dynamic target definition and the PAS directive, if provided. If no target definition or PAS directive is provided, ACONCICS=YES determines which BBI-SS PAS the CICS will connect to, based on the affinity factors described on AutoConnect affinity factors.
