Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z -RDz - Floating license users
    may see log files created for RCL_API_LOG_Sample_xxx.xml
    
    These log files are created by Rational Common Licensing
    for customers with Floating licenses.  The logs do not indicate
    that any problems exists.
    
    Even when a configuration file, RCL_Log_Config.txt, is setup as
    follows in the RDz installation directory the log file is still
    being created:
    Location =
    Product = RDz
    Version =
    Size =
    LogLevel =
    TraceLevel =
    MaxFiles =
    EnableLogging = 0
    EnableTracing = 0
    The following environment variable is also
    set:
    RCL_LOG_CONFIG_PATH
    This environment should be set at
    installation time and points to the
    directory where configuration file
    resides.  For example:
    RCL_LOG_CONFIG_PATH=C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
     USERS AFFECTED:
       All RDz customers that use floating licenses and
       Rational License Server
    ****************************************************************
     PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
     Everytime RDz is started a log file is created for Rational
     Common Licensing (RCL) with no information in it.  Even when
     an RCL configuration file was created that turned off logging
     the log file was still being created.
    ***********************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • ****************************************************************
    Problem Resolution:
    RCL provided a code change that is shipped with RDz in the RDz
    v8.0.3.5 fixpack.  RCL will now check the configuration file
    to see if logging is enabled before creating a log file.
    
    The RCL congifuration file, RCL_Log_Config.txt , should contain
    the following:
    Location =
    Product = RDz
    Version =
    Size =
    LogLevel =
    TraceLevel =
    MaxFiles =
    EnableLogging = 0
    EnableTracing = 0
    
    In addition, the environment variable 'RCL_LOG_CONFIG_PATH'
    needs to be set.
    
    The EV must be set before the product is launched.
    
    The value of the EV, "RCL_LOG_CONFIG_PATH" should point to
    the directory of the installation.
    
    eg: RCL_LOG_CONFIG_PATH=C:\Temp
