Why are file size and date statistics sometimes incorrect on members uploaded to and from z/OS with IBM Rational Team Concert on z/OS SCM Command Line and in z/OS Ant builds?
Currently, this is a limitation updating member ISPF statistics with SCM commands and the z/OS Ant builds.
Review Using ISPF Statistics in Ant-based z/OS builds where this issue is described in detail.
Situations where the ISPF statistics for the member may be different from what is expected:
- When the PDS member has statistics and is zimported into a repository workspace, it will have the date and time of the zimport. This ISPF date and time is taken from the distributed file system
- When zloaded back to z/OS to another PDS, the size of the member becomes 0
- When zloaded back to z/OS to another PDS, the ISPF date and time are the original zimport date and time
- Files generated by the build process have an ISPF statistics timestamp unless they are RECFM=U. Other information is not updated. The same applies to SCM command line.
Note: Additional scenarios may exist. Contact IBM support if you experience this issue to report a new scenario not mentioned above.
