    ****************************************************************
    01.In order to bring the element being edited to the entry
       stage of the target environment, the RDz Endevor RAM makes
       use of the CA Endevor Transfer Element API.  For sites that
       do not allow the CA Endevor Transfer Element function, this
       means that their RDz users are not able to make use of the
       RDz Enhanced Edit capabilities when retrieving elements from
       the CA Endevor repository. When the Endevor RAM requests the
       list of components from the CA Endevor API, this list also
       includes datasets that are used during the linkedit step.
       When those datasets are sent to the RDz client, their record
       format is not compatible with the record format used by the
       copybook datasets.  This causes message "Record format not
       allowed" to be shown in the log.
    02.When the Endevor RAM requests the list of components from
       the CA Endevor API, this list also includes data sets that
       are used during the linkedit step.  When those data sets are
       sent to the RDz client, their record format is not
       compatible with the record format used by the copybook
       datasets.  This causes message "Record format not allowed"
       to be shown in the log.
    03.The crastart.conf PROGRMA= statement is limited to 100
       characters
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The RDz Endevor RAM is being enhanced to allow the systems
       administrator to indicate whether to use an alternative
       method for getting the element from the source location into
       the entry stage of the target location.
    02.A change is made to the Endevor RAM to filter from the
       list of dependencies those data sets that are not acceptable
       for resolving the copybooks
    03.Increased the max length to 244
