With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a IBM device in your network.
ibm Bna Directory Apparent Lu Owner Name
Fully qualified CP name of the node at which the LU appears to be located. This object and the appnDirLuOwnerName object in the APPN MIB are related as follows: Implementations that support this object save in their directory database information about an LU's owning control point that was communicated in two control vectors: - an Associated Resource Entry (X'3C') CV with resource type X'00F4' (ENCP) - a Real Owning Control Point (X'4A') CV. The X'4A' CV is created by a branch network node to preserve the name of the real owning control point for an LU below the branch network node, before it overwrites this name with its own name in the X'3C' CV. The X'4A' CV is not present for LUs that are not below branch network nodes. If the information a node has about an LU's owning CP came only in a X'3C' CV, then the name from the X'3C' is returned in the appnDirLuOwnerName object, and a null string is returned in this object. If the information a node has about an LU's owning CP came in both X'3C' and X'4A' CVs, then the name from the X'4A' is returned in the appnDirLuOwnerName object, and the name from the X'3C' (which will be the branch network node's name) is returned in this object.
