Enterprise Content Manager Toolkit for z/OS install issues.

Technote (troubleshooting)


While installing the z/OS toolkit and eClient on z/OS under USS, we encountered several problems. We ran ICMECCFG and it created a file with missing first characters. There was also a path issue related to the file and a number of other issues.


The file created after running ICMECCFG is truncating the first character in a number of lines causing build issues. Also, there was a not found on the file.


The cause of the first problem is a bad RECFM of FBA instead of FB. The second problem is caused by not having write authority to the file.



Diagnosing the problem

You receive the following error message in the ECCFG2 step when running the ICMECCFG job:

/SERVICE/ICM/V843/TOOLKIT/TLKTFP1/config/eclient/configEC.xml:65: The
following error occurred while executing this line:
/SERVICE/ICM/V843/TOOLKIT/TLKTFP1/config/eclient/configEC.xml:84: The
following error occurred while executing this line:
/SERVICE/ICM/V843/TOOLKIT/TLKTFP1/config/eclient/websphere.xml:89: Could
not read filters from file /SERVICE/ICM/V843/TOOLKIT/TLKTF
P1/config/eclient/Name of the temp directory/ as it
doesn't exist.

For the second error, you see path errors in the dklog.

Resolving the problem

To fix the truncation issue, change the RECFM to FB. To fix the second run the following command to allow write authority: chmod og+w Then restart the eClient.
