Error description

  • --- Service ---
    
    -EQAD3CXT not trapping DL/I batch.
     (PM81324 at 11.1)
    
    -CICS: A loop occurs in Debug Tool routine EQA10OUT after a
     task is purged (abend AEXY). Problem occurs when running with
     LE run-time option TRAP(OFF).
     (PM81367 at 12.1)
    
    -Program Check in EQA00CTX+6ECx when a nonexistent line number
     was checked beyond MaxLine number.
     (PM81420 at 11.1)
    
    -An infinite loop occurs when using Debug Tool. Traversing DSA
     chains, a savearea points back to itself. Symptom could show
     loop occurring in CEEVGUNO.
     (PM83275 at 12.1)
     (PM83284 at 11.1)
    
    -SET SAVE / RESTORE is picking up wrong IMS USER ID.  User is
     getting EQA1764E for RESTORE BPS.
     (PM84338 at 12.1)
    
    -Debug Tool Load Module Analyzer (LMA) does not recognize
     Enterprise PL/1 for z/OS V4 5655-W67.
     (PM83650 at 12.1)
    
    -MONITOR prefix line commands H and D change more than one
     line.  Entering D or H in prefix area should only change the
     value in the same line. Observation shows it changing all
     variables in the monitor view or a subset of the displayed
     variables.
     (PM83912 at 11.1)
    
    -JCL parser used in DTSU.
     When a step in a JCL invokes a PROC and provides a replacement
     DD statement and the attributes in the DD statement are
     defined in the PROC then the JCL parser does not generate the
     DD attributes in the new generated JCL which leads to errors.
     (PM84033 at 12.1)
    
    -Wrong USER ID used in deleting profiles in DTCN.
     USER ID set in DTCN determines which DTCN profiles can be
     deleted.  User A logs on to CICS region , in DTCN USER ID is
     set to user B, in SHOW PROFILE view User A can now delete user
     B's profiles.
     (PM84644 at 12.1)
    
    -EQALANGP and EQALANGX from PDTCC APAR PM82975.
     EQALANGX version 2013-03-01 10:34.
    
       Debug Tool customer using HLASM LANGX can have bad R0 and R4
       values displayed because EQALANGX can end up incorrectly
       putting label flag on some registers.
    
       When using LIST command to display the value of a register
       in Debug Tool (such as "LIST R0"), an incorrect value is
       displayed. The same problem exists for LIST, MONITOR LIST
       and AUTOMONITOR.
