Why is the size of some Connect:Direct modules reported differently in the startup output to the size that is listed in the LINKLIB?

Technote (troubleshooting)


There is a difference in the way the size of some modules are reported in IBM Sterling Connect:Direct during startup as opposed to the size reported in the LINKLIB. For example,


DMGSAF , , 00005918 000184 00 31 24

In the C:D Startup:

DMGSAF EP=80042000 SIZE=00006000

Resolving the problem

Check if the LINKLIB is a PDSE or a PDS dataset; the module size in a PDSE LINKLIB is reported differently to the module size in a PDS LINKLIB.
Note: this is purely cosmetic and it will not affect product functionality.
